Barron's has a somewhat negative story on RJF in the 11-8-08 addition of the paper. Investors may want to take a look. However, the Barrons track record of late has not been that good. Still, the article has some interesting items to take into consideration.
It is my suspicion that the Barron's story was a plant by Jam Partners a wanna be small hedge fund that is upset that they have been wrong to date. While I respect the shorts because they general do good work and there some points to consider in the article it had a foul odor to it. In that, I think basically Sy penned most of it for Sandra. Just my guess and the Wachovia analyst is weak IMHO. Just speculation on my part. Just remember Sy Jacobs is NOT jim Chanos.
