Jones, just barely hanging on
It sure has been a tough year for Edward Jones. Just take a look:
April 2005 (ranked #1 in customer satisfaction)
April 2005 (#1 company to work for in Hawaii)
April 2005 (Edward Jones Dome hosts Final 4 NCAA Tournament)
June 2005 (Jones explosive growth continues)
August 2005 (Smart Money ranks Edward Jones #1 Full Service Firm)
October 2005 (Dalbar ranks Edward Jones statement #1)
December 2005 (Registered Rep #1 ranking, 13th year in a row)
December 2005 (Profits up 20% so far in 2005)
Wow, I guess Edward Jones might survive after all.
Edward Jones, the beat goes on.............
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.
Silly me I forgot the link. Please forgive me The Wrong Answer.
I probably will since she is more of a man that Bush. Geez, I would hate to get on her bad side.
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.
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.
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.
