OK, so they're a second-tier firm. But the fact is that for whatever reason, luck if not smarts, they've dodged the problems that have decimated the Street.
The fact is they're very profitable and the stock is up big. Now if YOU had said sell C, sell GS, sell LEH a couple months ago, you'd seem pretty prescient and would bring some credility to the table with your "STRONG SELL" rating. But since you just popped up very recently and only to rag about OPY's unseemly roots in Fahnestock, it sure looks like you're simply a down-sized margin clerk with a grudge.
Or maybe you're a newborn savvy investor who is backing his convicitons with a short position of what? 200 shares? 2000 shares?
Get a grip, I also agree with the post that this is not "CIBC Oppenheimer", I had an account there and when Fahnestock took it over my broker left to better firm. There was a huge quality gap between CIBC Oppenheimer and Oppenheimer. You get what you pay for.
