God Smiles On Rafferty Capital

Noted bank analyst Dick Bove is joining New York-based brokerage firm Rafferty Capital Markets LLC. Bove said Wednesday he will begin publishing research again in about a month…Bove said he moved to Rafferty because the firm doesn’t have an asset management or investment banking branch. “I really wanted to do pure research and nothing else. Rafferty gives me that opportunity,” he said. [WSJ, earlier, earlier]

    Rafferty? I'll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. For my money, I don't know if it gets any better than when he sings "Baby Beluga."

    I knew a man once who said, "Dick smiles at us all." All Rafferty can do is smile back.

    What did the lure him with, a 10lb bag of Werther's Originals?

    Get it? Cause he is an old man and old men like to pop those things in their mouths! Anything?

    Why didn't he start his own shop like Whit-Whit? He also had at least one good call.

    "Rafferty Capital Markets, LLC is a registered broker dealer…RCM has dedicated itself to an unparalleled culture of camaraderie, proficiency and respect."

    If those last few words don't describe Dick in a nutshell, I don't know what would.

    Rafferty is about as relevant to the markets as the 76ers are to the NBA.

    These guys?

    Must be. Doesn't look like they have an asset managment or investment banking division…

    Great move, Dick! Congrats.

    Since the Rafferty job qualifications appear to involve: 1) repeatedly embarassing oneself on TV; 2) a lengthy history of spotty stock calls mirroring that of a monkey throwing darts at a ticker list; and 3) a writing style commensurate with a 6th grade education, I too would like to humbly submit my application for Rafferty bank analyst.

    Opulence, Rafferty does not has it. Time for me to take the gig at Toys R'Us.

    I have the same depressing feeling reading this that I got watching the great Willie Mays finish out his career with the '72-73 Mets.
