    200 Hundred BILLION +

    Thats right 200 hundred billion dollars plus done in the M&A business this month; August 2010 - the most since August of 1999 and this in what is suppose to be the biggest vocation month for Fiancers' --

    Given all that it would be nice to see Blackstone finally start showing numbers we all consistently hear they are going to show, deal after deal completed, money raised yet nothing seems to get to the bottom line - why is that - is this another Enron, are they a front for CIA funding, maybe they are finally going to have results hit the bottom line, maybe Disney Land will become affordable for families again, who knows but Blackstone needs either new accountants, an audit or a way to unlock the value of their stock because this becoming a joke at this point.

    • All this hub-bar over BX going from 10-11 to 13-14, so what, this had an IPO price of $31 and considering all the deal making it seems nothing every hits the bottom line and improves stock holders positions.

      Let's see how the Oct 28 conference call goes, let's see if we get clear, positive direction on what their doing and how and if they plan on showing some sort of guidance for increased earnings and most importantly getting BX back to it's IPO Price. The way they announce deals and funds and this and that you would think they would be double or triple their IPO price...

      • Their calls are always very positive( as most Companys calls). They state they are in the sweet spot in this kind of market and will bust out like a cannon. They will if the economy recovers. Extreme leverage with BX. PPS Will be 50% higher in recovery but 50% lower if double dip.

      • Curious as to why you keep whining and blithering about the IPO price. You can't evaluate any stock outside the context of the market, or as of any single point in time. BX has almost tripled from its March 2009 low. If you bought at the IPO price, you're down. If you bought at the market low, you're up.

        I think the quarter will be positive, but whether it is or not, I really like this stock long term. I think it will pay long term investors--including those in since 2007--handsomely. And if I'm wrong, I'll move on at some point. Without whining.

    • Another Question?! How can such a successful company, one that is so liquid that it was considered for bailing out Bear Stearns only a handful of companies made that list, M&A is the best in a decade which was to spur Blackstone to greater heights especially with all these deals being announced and in the pipeline.... so the question.... was the $31 IPO price a fraud, contrived, a whitewashing of investors or is there languishing at 10-12 a byproduct of ineptness or are they cooking the books, funding who knows what??.....

      Fair valuation should be begin above their IPO price but obviously that's a joke so why is BX such a joke?

      • If you don't like it, sell. We've just experience the worst environment for PE in 30 years. BX funds lost a lot of money. The fact that they're doing deals now wont show up in their income tomorrow, most of the deals take years for the value to be realized. Stop whining. Do you even understand this business model?

    • How can a company that was one of only a handful of companies asked to bail out Bear Stearns continue to have their numbers move as if their in quicksand. All these deals announced over the last 18 months has amounted to nothing for shareholders who are just left holding the proverbial bag. This stock and mgmt team need to realize the stench they smell is themselves.

    • You mean, the outside shareholders need an auditor to protect and define their interests. Most of the goodness ends up with the general partners.
