    But U Also Said [ I thank people like DavisFoulger ] For Being A Schill ? [ A shill, also called a plant or a stooge, is a person who publicly helps or gives credibility to a person or organization without disclosing that they have a close relationship with the person or organization. Shills can carry out their operations in the areas of media, journalism, marketing or other business areas. A shill may also act to discredit opponents or critics of the person or organization in which they have a vested interest through character assassination or other means.

    Shill typically refers to someone who purposely gives onlookers the impression that they are an enthusiastic independent customer of a seller (or marketer of ideas) for whom they are secretly working. The person or group who hires the shill is using crowd psychology to encourage other onlookers or audience members to purchase the goods or services (or accept the ideas being marketed). Shills are often employed by professional marketing campaigns. Plant and stooge more commonly refer to any person who is secretly in league with another person or organization while pretending to be neutral or actually a part of the organization he is planted in, such as a magician's audience, a political party, or an intelligence organization (see double agent).[citation needed]

    Shilling is illegal in many circumstances and in many jurisdictions[1] because of the potential for fraud and damage; however, if a shill does not place uninformed parties at a risk of loss, but merely generates "buzz," the shill's actions may be legal. For example, a person planted in an audience to laugh and applaud when desired (see claque), or to participate in on-stage activities as a "random member of the audience," is a type of legal shill.[citation needed] Shill can also be used pejoratively to describe a critic who appears either all-too-eager to heap glowing praise upon mediocre offerings, or who acts as an apologist for glaring flaws ]

    Not looking for huge gains but would like to see RAS stabilize to a buy and hold for the dividend stock around 8.50+.
    Sentiment: Strong Buy IRT & RAS earnings setting up to be huge!!!
    by stablestock • 3 hours ago Flag
    Based on today's trading and the history of past leaks prior to earnings release this is looking like the bounce that will start the move to back over 5+ for RAS and 8+ for IRT. Can wait to hear the good news.
    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Bad management

    Between 2010 and the end of 2014, Taberna sold or
    transferred the management rights to the Taberna CDOs. Taberna currently has no advisory

  • imjoel00 by imjoel00 Apr 11, 2016 2:46 PM Flag

    These proceedings arise out of Taberna’s multi-year effort to charge and retain certain
    fees (known as “Exchange Fees”) in connection with restructuring transactions undertaken
    between Taberna’s collateralized debt obligation (“CDO”) clients (the “Taberna CDOs”) and the
    issuers of the underlying obligations in the Taberna CDOs’ portfolios. Between 2009 and 2012,
    Taberna, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of RAIT, retained over $15 million of Exchange
    Fees. As Taberna knew, the Exchange Fees should have gone to the CDOs, and retention of the
    Exchange Fees was impermissible under the governing documents for the Taberna CDOs.
    Moreover, the Exchange Fees created actual and potential conflicts of interest that Taberna failed
    to disclose to its clients, in violation of Taberna’s fiduciary duty as an investment adviser, and to
    the investors in the Taberna CDOs, including on Taberna’s Forms ADV. As described further
    below, Michael Fralin and Raphael Licht played key roles in the relevant misconduct. Fralin had
    responsibility for exchange negotiations and documentation that incorporated false and
    misleading language about Exchange Fees. Licht, a senior Taberna executive at the time, was
    among those who approved Taberna’s collection of Exchange Fees. Licht also had a role in
    supervising Fralin’s efforts to generate Exchange Fees, and also failed to ensure those fees were
    disclosed in Taberna’s Forms ADV. 38. Fralin viewed part of his job responsibilities as maximizing Taberna’s Exchange
    Fee income. Because he had a background as an attorney and an investment banker, he was
    given some autonomy to do so. In his own words, “[m]ost of the fees [generated in 2009] were
    purely based on my hard work and determination.” Notwithstanding this, the exchanges had to
    be approved by Fralin’s immediate supervisors at Taberna.
    M. Taberna shall pay disgorgement of $13,000,000, prejudgment interest of
    $2,000,000, and a civil penalty of $6,500,000 to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
    Fralin shall pay a civil penalty of $100,000 to the Securities and Exchange Commission in four
    installments, with $25,000 due within ten (10) days of the entry of the Order, $25,000 due 90
    days after the entry of the Order, $25,000 due 180 days after the entry of the Order, and $25,000
    due 270 days after the entry of the Order. Licht, within ten (10) days of the entry of the Order,
    shall pay a civil penalty of $75,000 to the Securities and Exchange Commission. If any payment
    is not made by the date payment is required by this Order, the entire outstanding balance of
    disgorgement, prejudgment interest, and civil penalties, plus any additional interest accrued
    pursuant to SEC Rule of Practice 600 and/or pursuant to 31 U.S.C. § 3717, shall be due and
    payable immediately, without further application. Payment must be made in one of the
    following ways:
