    Strong Sell????????????????????????

    All you wonderful people who are so against Piper Jaffray and giving out meaningless "strong sell" recommendations - can you please elaborate on the recent performance of this stock from $43 to $49.60?\

    Why are you so negative when you are always so wrong?

    You know that the business on Wall Street is improving, the merger market is coming back, the trading volumes are up and you want to short Piper Jaffray! Why this negativity?

    Have a great Christmas, I hope you covered the shorts a long time ago :-)

    • Yes - strong sell. This company has no correlation with the performance of real Wall Street firms. You are mistaken to believe that a rising river lifts all ships in this industry. Piper has too much fixed overhead (read - added to many research analysts that cannot be supported by the trading business).

      If you truly believe that Wall Street biz is on an uptrend, this stock would make a great short-side for a pairs trade...long LEH or Goldman, short PJC.
