RE: Solengo Imbroglio: A Plausible Theory
Percy Walker: Securities Law 101:
1. Fund Manager to Potential Investor to Media = OK (but lawyer will advise you to pretend like you give a shit that it was disclosed).
2. Fund Manger to Media = Not OK (Must “cool off” to continue with offering (up to 6 months if your lawyer is extremely anal and the disclosure particularly flattering)).
Old media trick: call manager to confirm that poor performance numbers you are about to publish are correct. Un-savvy manager will give actual performance numbers to avoid disclosure of unflattering info. and unwittingly force delay in its offering.

RE:Help Us Take Down The Preacher Man Today
Jason G.: CNBC allows you to enter the contest more than once, as long as you use a different email address for each entry… Take every long shot you can find and a few hours of setting up gmail accounts and you’ll win.
My money is on Loyola over Notre Dame (field hockey).

RE:Help Us Take Down The Preacher Man Today
Shelley: “Stephen Collins. Yes, the father from 7th Heaven. We’ve mentioned him before and now we’re telling you this: we need to beat this guy. No. We need to destroy him. Why? Because he drove Jessica Biel to pornography so she could get out of her contract with The WB (actually we’re told by some in the office that this was a good thing but we’re too deep into this to turn back now so Stephen Collins it is), that’s why”
THIS IS THE MOST DISGUSTING THING I HAVE EVER HEARD – I AM A FAN OF THIS SHOW – SHE WANTED OUT, STEPHEN HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HER DECISION TO DO THAT – IF YOU READ SOME COMMENTS BY HER SHE SAID SHE POSED FOR THAT MAGAZINE SHE DIDN’T KNOW THEY WERE GOING TO DO THAT – BUT THAT’S FINE, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BLAME SOMEONE, BLAME JESSICA – SINCE STEPHEN HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS.
THIS IS JUST DISGUSTING.

RE:Does Having A Job In Finance Kill Your Chances With The Ladies?
Anonymous: I dated men in my industry and never will again. Worst boyfriends ever. Even worse lovers. The problem is they spend all day in a testosterone-charged environment with no women around to temper the atmosphere, discussing women in the most brutal of terms, with accompanying pictures. As a girlfriend of a banker, prepare to have every bite of salad that goes into your mouth met with a grimace, because your BF hears his boss bitch all day about how fat his wife is. The sex is abysmal. If it’s not the stress of work (which they assume you’re too stupid to understand) it’s the 5 glasses of scotch after work with the boys that renders your “BSD” woefully sans d. And should you at least want to spend time with your man and said boys? No F-ing WAY are you invited. You’re way too stupid to keep up, you’ll probably just stuff yourself on bar peanuts and appetizers, and his friends will think he’s whipped – after all, he’s never getting married anyway, because then his boss will think he’s a loser.
Conversely, banker types…if you want to get lucky (I’m not even talking about a “relationship”) stay the hell away from the metpacking bottle service – those “models” (read – russian strippers) are NOT going to go for your skinny 5’7 blue shirted ass. Just go to a normal happy hour joint, chat with the pretty girl at the bar, listen to her talk about herself for five minutes, smile, and don’t listen to your asshole friends – you would be amazed at how much tail you’ll score in this city when you act like a normal person.

the real nc: Natalie, I did do a littel investigation, you proably are best friends with Jessica… are you going to bake her cookies while she spends time in a Federal Pen? And for you being happily married, don’t think so. Does Pepsi know that your on the internet bashing Pepsi? Are you at work? What would Mr.Foss think of you doing this? I also go to school with his daughters. When we return from break I’ll fill them in on the scank that you are, did you know that IT can track your postings from work? Watch out Natalie, you too may be having the door hit you in the ass!!!

RE: Connecticut Still Pondering How To Make Love To Hedge Funds While Hating Them
Bulging Bracket: No. A government regulation will actually exacerbate the problem that it proposes to solve, make the jurisdiction poorer, entrench establish interests, and increases costs. I see you’re using that evil logic based analysis again, rather than just accepting the press releases of the politicians as obviously valid like good people do.
Time to move to London, where even the socialists know not to mess with the Hedgies.

MG:It’s quiet here. Maybe a little too quiet. Frankly, it’s making me nervous. Anyone else get the feeling that the Michigan gang has loaded itself into a panel van full of numchucks and baseball bats and is driving East?! Or maybe the Westchester crowd is using all seats – including the optional third road seating – in their Lexus SUV – and heading west with lacrosse and field hockey sticks? I just hope someone has a camera rolling when Zana and Barbie “meet out back.”

DealBreaker Comments of The Week

Though we admit this to few and far between, if you must know, you’re reading a blog written by extremely self-absorbed, narcissistic people. We write the site so that we can then go back and read what we have to say, as opposed to having to read other people’s stuff. But recent personal events have caused us to turn over a new leaf, or, you know, at least half-heartedly try. So we’re starting a new feature wherein we turn the site over to you. Each Friday, we’ll be presenting you with a rundown of the best things you’ve had to say this week, meaning your best comments, as determined by us (we said half-heartedly). They’ll be broken down into four categories: Useful, entertaining, usefultaining and BS. Let’s begin.

RE: Opening Bell: 1.16.07
Lee D: Hedge fund registration here is a pretty big non-event, since securities enforcement is really, really slack in the Great White North. The only people who ever get taken down are Financial Planners *cough* who commit outright theft. It takes a lot of plain old fraud to get the Provincial Authorities to sit up and take notice.
Al Rosen’s columns are nice and vitriolic about the state of enforcement here:
