$1B is no big deal....unless it's your money....but hey, it's only the shareholders ... "if you don't like it here leave" So I did.
Just had my best year ever in the business.... building on that. No more theft of accounts....no more nickel dime fees and expenses.....no more mandated cut ins to underpaid assistants....no more indentured requirements
jimmy is a bean counter who never had a client of his own....they are buying asset managers as they actively undermine their own advisory force
MS will not be successful.....becasuse they couldn't care less about their people. folks are miserable across the board

That lost they took was really shameful they could had Oppenheimer for the price of that loss what a mistake
I feel that MS is on track to do great things - especially after learning that MS participated as global coordinator for Spain's Allfunds IPO. Thanks for the article - I'll continue to hold MS stock.
Thank you for this article, and for working late on a Friday night/Saturday morning to write it.

I bought more on the post earnings dip.
