    Preet Bharara Does Not Need This Shit

    The four guys who got to retract their guilty pleas to the crime earlier this month? Yea, they won’t have to enter new pleas of any kind—unless the Second Circuit Court of Appeals sees the error of its ways, or the Supreme Court sees said error.

    Warren Buffett Is Just Daring You To Drive Down The Price Of BRK/A

    Every year starting in around late December and continuing until around this time, I found myself at the end of each day hoping that the S&P had gone down. Rooting against GS, of course, made obvious sense, but I was also keenly aware that I was soon going to be buying a whole lot – […]

    Bob Moffat Finally Accepting The Fact That Danielle Chiesi Never Really Cared About Him

    For years and years before she was charged with insider trading in the Galleon case, people were aware of Danielle Chiesi’s schtick.

    Former IBM Exec Had Second Job In Venture Capital

    While nobody at IBM would dispute that its former head of M&A, David Johnson, was putting in some serious hours, they are taking issue with the fact that he spent a good deal of that time preparing to launch a technology focused VC firm, JSJ Capital Management.

    The Proposal To Bring Back Buy-And-Hold

    Former IBM CEO Lou Gerstner is not making any new friends on trading desks. Gerstner bemoans Wall St.’s focus on short term trading rewards but goes one step further and offers a modest proposal to solve the problem.

    Antitrust Is Back Home Early

    And you thought antitrust had no surprises left in it. Far from it. Even the threat of extended reviews (six to nine months in this case) is still enough to blow a chilly breeze over the swollen nether regions of about-to-merge firms.
