  • The last time LUK did something like this it blew up. check out awe_some_stocks, its a pretty reliable service. of course you have to do your own due diligence, but they generally point you in the right direction.
  • why down today?
  • why no jump on the KCG sale news?

  • Jefferies Q2 earnings. Definite improvement. Not killer earnings, but at least it's going in the right direction.

    I've been swamped, and just realized that I missed the annual meeting. At the Corner of Berkshire message board, a poster has copies and pasted his meeting notes. Pretty interesting, worth a read. Among other interesting nuggets, I was most interested in Team Handler's observations re: National Beef:

    -We wouldn't have bought National Beef

    - We are trying to position the company for a sale

  • My Notes From Annual Meeting. Richard Handler:

    Fixed Income and National Beef are now solid. Leucadia Asset Management and Energy are on their way back. All businesses are on a good keel.

    Interest rates are staying low. Not much global growth. Worry about liquidity worldwide.

    LUK strategy: stay liquid, low debt, opportunities will arise.

    Brian Friedman:

    Our businesses are either solid or doing well. Trading desks doing well. Fixed Income - changes were made to improve it. Investment Banking globally is slow. JEF made some West Coast hires in Investment Banking which JEF is optimistic about. National Beef is in a cyclical turn upward.

    Optimistic about: Our businesses are moving into upward momentum. Oil - see opportunities. HRG - good results. FGL will be sold this year. Linkem - more subscribers coming. HOFD - Otay is starting consturction. GQMN - mining begun, all on schedule. Our businesses are improving. Opportunities coming.


    Why not buying back stock?

    Bought 5 million last year. Buy back is discussed frequently but want to keep cash for investment



    Having another good year. Good refinancing opportunities coming.

    Why is LUK stock not doing well?

    Extreme volatility. Low interest rates forces strange behavior - seeking better returns elsewhere.

    Competitors are facing more regulations then JEF. JEF is building it's investment bank.

    Look for good earnings - double digit.


    Keep dividend but preserve cash.


    Years ago it was easier to buy companies. Now harder. Using LUK Asset Management to

    look for opportunities. Large network at Jefferies to use to seek opportunities.

    Restaurant Investment:

    50/50 with best operator in business. More opportunities are coming.

    Web cast the Annual Meeting:

    Good idea!

    National Beef:

    We buy cows, we don't raise them. This investment is not something JEF management would have done.

    May sell or issue shares when time is right.

    Fixed Income Market:

    Now small group of players. Always changing. Must watch risk. Joint venture partnerships. We always

    come out better after bad periods.
  • the party contines at JEF. more expensive hires.........
  • Reality vs. Happy talk. The reported reality was pretty dismal. On the other hand, the happy talk sounded good...as usual.
