“Goldman could benefit from MF Global’s plight,” Bove said in a note today. “One might argue that Goldman is over capitalized and that it has too much liquidity. Buying some or all of MF Global might create the opportunity to make a windfall profit.” MF Global, run by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jon Corzine, is exploring strategic options, including a potential sale, after reporting its biggest quarterly loss ever and having its credit ratings cut by Moody’s Investors Service, a person with knowledge of the matter said today.

    I've been coming to this fair site for quite a few years and have seen many posts quoting this man. I've also seen him on tv a number of times. I was discussing dealbreaker over drinks with some friends and they have reported the same phenomenon but they expressed the same concerns I had on this subject.

    So I'll just go ahead and ask: who the hell is this guy?

    I concur with your point of see. An I am happy that all this madness will end. Do not you get tired of persons posting pics of their food and commenting ” yummy!” OMG, I are not able to stand that or men and women ranting about the some stupid trouble that they need to deal with?
    While replying your post it occur to me that there is so much money to be made by the telemarketer companies that are tracking the “likes” of individuals that maybe someone will invest in facebook and continue with this madness.
    But likely back again to your put up, yes, persons could write letters and will pass the knowledge of writing to their future generations so that they are not so illiterate. If persons stops making relationships by way of a computer and have a real face to face time,maybe all this “social anxiety” and psychological problems will be gone by exercising having real buddies.
