Even the Ameritrade research team says to accumulate BX....and that is rare for my stocks...lol. Just wonder how much longer will BX trade as a stand alone company? You have to wonder if BX is not in play after that PR the other day of an overseas company seeking a fund of fund stable small company, mentioning BX as one of a few they may be interested in. Also, I bet that many went short here as of late after seeing GS and BAC blow up on recent earnings dates. Sounds like BX is the one to hold on to.
