Insiders at JPMorgan (JPM +1.1%) believe Jamie Dimon has the votes to support his dual roles of CEO and Chairman, reports Charlie Gasparino. Key will be big votes from BlackRock and T. Rowe Price due in a few days, and execs feel they have won those. If Dimon loses? "He won't leave them in the lurch ... he will groom a successor."

  • And there it is.

     

    The daily Market Current update of the "Jamie Dimon Watch."

     

    The only thing missing is Nancy Grace giving her opinion.

     

    Recent updates had Mr. Dimon "taking his ball and going home" if he didn't get to keep both titles. A change of heart, apparently.

  • All this drama coverage of Jamie is kind of ridiculous and smacks of created news. Jamie and Board of Directors probably knew a long time ago he had their votes and support if this was ever even a point of discussion. It would be unusual for big institutional shareholders to jack around another CEO as they could get like treatment in return......or worse.

     

    Was any of this real?

  • Jamie Diamond, he was America's Most Wanted. What a disgrace, him and his ilk.

  • You can't even spell Dimon correctly. You must be incredibly informed.

  • The lust for power is insatiable.
    How can a Chairman via the Board effectively supervise and scrutinize management when he is also the CEO?

     

    The lack of accountability and vanity among the Money, Media and Govt elites is both towering and destructive but then in a Soviet, the Kremlin is supreme.

  • This is nothing more than much ado about nothing played up by the uninformed and the media.
