  • Madoff trustee Irving Picard sues Ruth Madoff for at least $44.8M because she lived a "life of splendor" using proceeds from her husband's fraud. Madoff's lawyer calls the suit "perplexing and totally unjustified" since Ruth already forfeited "almost all" the assets named in the complaint.  [View news story]

    their alums do not have access to company trading algorithms, they are chosen to assimilate company culture and to execute according to certain rules. The best do not leave the company therefore you cannot take those conclusions

  • Intuitive Surgical: A Hidden Gem [View article]
    Dear Sir,

    We can prove the stock was recommended as a buy at $97 and $143 recently up to $232. It is natural you do not find references in since we have 1 month on the site but obviously you did not make any research. Our services to retail investors is very limited and it is not our focus. As for the rest you can read the next article on ISRG

    "Since money market funds barely earn 38 basis points these days, much of the return winds up in the hands of investment managers," Gross said.
