You forget one.


December 2005 (#1 in Fines paid by a regional brokerage firm for securities violations)


On the bright side, when the SEC nails A.G. Edwards for market timing and revenue sharing you may drop down to #2. 


Go St. Louis, you're on a roll.

I probably will since she is more of a man that Bush.  Geez, I would hate to get on her bad side.

Dec 2, 2005 11:06 pm

Your link was from Dec '04 not '05.



What firm are you affiliated with?

Dec 2, 2005 11:09 pm

Well 2005 isn't over yet.  I was thinking cumulatively.  You never know Jones might get hit again.  What firm you ask?  Just say I am quite familiar with the goings on in St. Louis.

Dec 2, 2005 11:16 pm

Great firm.



Do you do much with their managed accounts?

Dec 2, 2005 11:21 pm

Not so great firm.  Too much rumbling going on.  The CEO and quite a few branch managers decided to make money the old fashion way, by stealing it.  Alot of FC's know about this and are not too happy.

What do you mean?

Dec 3, 2005 12:08 am

Wait and see......it will be coming soon.

So the Edward Jones dome hosted the NCAA tournament - BFD.  St. Louis hosted it, Edward Jones had their name on the building.  The Super Bowl happens to be at Ford Field in Detroit.  Go Ford!

The first post on this thread demonstrates the difference between those at Jones who drink the Kool-aid, and those to tear open the package dump it on their desk, and snort the stuff.  I just wish we could see TA's red nose to prove he/she/it is a snorter. 


Jones is #1, a book of business invested in only American Funds is diversified, PORTFOLIO does financial planning, and anyone who says anything negative about this marvelous system is jealous. Ya right.
