Huge Project in the Works!

I have been out of pocket a lot this week at meetings — I just inked the deal on a huge new project. Details will be forthcoming soon, but I am very jazzed about it.

Hint: It involves Bear Stearns . . .

    You didn’t buy Bear Stearns’ building did you?

    What was the point to make this post without providing the details?

    Did you lose a lot of money betting against us and hoping for JPM to bail you out like Bear Stearns?

    Johnathan, you posted my thoughts exactly. Now I just wonder if he paid $2 or $10…

    If you need an IT guy who can get the mac to work in the enterprise, I’m your man.

    Does this mean more Friday night jazz?

    Or maybe some new talent wrote a great song about life on wall street after Bear Sterns. Say shouldn’t that be a Blues song?

    I want to hear a good cover of the sub prime bankers version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

    If possible, don’t use your own money.

    My guess is a book on Bear Stearns, using Bear Stearns as the linchpin for the broader credit debacle.

    If so, should be a great read.

    Ok… So you are working with Bear Stearns To Buyout Yahoo With Fed Money and then Flip Them To Mr. Softie for a finders fee…?

    Goldilocks… :-)

    backseat shotgun! Ross always beats me. That damn guy, I get the feeling he’s been around ahwile?

    Has anyone noticed how banks are all strapped to each other?

    Citigroup owns Yahoo (yikes)
    C is owned by Morgan Stanley.
    JPM is owned by GS and LM.
    LEH is owned by DB and BAC.

    Wanna talk about going out in a boat and strapping a rock to yourself and trying to swim. This has got to be the biggest blunder I’ve ever seen. If you are a finance company why in the hell would you strap yourself to many other finance companies?

    If banking stocks don’t recover they will all go down together!

    good. Erv, digits; john, those cross-default loans and MBS swaps come in handy. heck, the fed even opened the window for yahoo.

    JPM hired you to create a new division called the Worldwide Trade Funneling a.k.a. WTF department.

    They surely need some of that.

    You’re the new Fed Chairman?

    Barry, will you be organizing Friday Night Jazz events at the Bear Stearns to boost the employee morale?

    Tough project! Godspeed
