    Yes, when I worked for Chase p/t in 1962 they were only allowed to have branches to the five counties of NYC. By the end of the decade we had the ability to have intrastate banking. Banks have always had internal securities who traded for the wealthy and on be half of the bank. Now that they allow synergy of banking and brokerage to retail it has become slowly profitable. The Merrill Lynch edge is beginning to add serious customers.
    For that reason it makes no sense to break up unless the government gets involved.

    Every bank does better to have a securities firm in house to break up that situation would be a poorly advised.

    In 2010 the unemployment definition was changed. Research the labor utilization numbers and it breakout data. I am very happy with the law that pre-existing conditions are now accepted however you need to see the numbers of actual coverage. Remember the boomers began being covered by Medicare in 2011 so they have been counted as part of obamacare when they should not have been.
    I also have been a democrat for my whole life.

    if you think obamacare has helped ordinary Americans you need to do more research. Especially the numbers of part timers who would want to work full time if they could or the number who lost the health care plan/or their doctor.
    I agree with raising the minimum wage but you might like to look at the unintended consequences that happened in Massachusetts the last time they raised it

    Interesting that 40 % of the applicants could not get a conventional loan while 20 % lost at flipping houses. Bottom line the LICENSED real estate personnel were suppose to be the gate keepers for the GSE loans so spare me the false modesty of the industry.

    I don't disagree with your idea however I was always advised to never pay above par on any instrument. I'm being called on the JPMorgan pfdC next week.

    While some consider Mike Mayo astute they seem to be unaware that many of his predictions have been wrong. Many people cherry pick on those items that are in their favor while ignoring the mountain of data against their view. Some will continue the same mundane comments hoping just by saying it will come true.

  • Congress Owns These Stocks, Should You? [View article]

    Your reading comprehension is poor so re-read what I said. You should know that like judges the are different kinds of bankers and painting with such a broad brush makes you look foolish. Lehman was not a "global bank" but a securities firm which was spun off from American Express 15 years before it went defunct. You might remember it was a judge which created the entity of a "non bank-bank" to refer to companies which had financial subsidiaries like GE Capital.
    Good luck finding a "respected" Jurist that like finding a needle in a haystack. You also should know in many parts of the USA you do not have to be a lawyer to be a judge, just like you don't have to be a medical doctor to be Coroner. Use words wisely

    Last time I checked they are still lawyers. Seeing how many times they are reversed you might look at their records first. I remembered when they pointed out a judge in the 7th District who had been reversed over 100 times and they couldn't do anything because of the lifetime appointment
