Anyone see the news that Phil Purcell is starting his own firm - Continental Investors?  Maybe they'll manage the money he received as his golden parachute.

What an idiot, he should go to work for a real brokerage firm called EDWARD JONES and do whats right for the clients........I think what would sell him is no pesky emails...I mean who needs that?

Imagine this ....knock knock...the door opens..an eighty eight year old blue hair with glasses so thick she needs a neck brace to hold her head up answers the door. "Hello my name is Phil Purcell, I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I'm opening an Edwards and Jones office next Payless shoe store downtown"........silence is now in the air.............ah... those sure are some beautiful mums in your yard. You must have a dog I noticed he left a few cigars around the clamatis bush..ha..ha..Can I have your phone number, SSN, employers name and address? We at Edwards and Jones have been serving individual investors since before Christ was born. I think it was Fred Jones that once said "the best time to invest is when you have the money available", so what will it be granny a 30 year 4.5 % bond or do you have time to look at the ICA mountain chart? The elderly woman looks at him through the dirty glasses and responds "listen you kook...you are the third fool from that company thats been to my house and asked the same question....now get the hell outa here".

I am reminded by the propaganda my RL used to say. It's better for the client to have that close personal approach with a new adviser than no communication with the old. Better for whom? Certainly not the client.

I had a former jones broker tell me he finally made up his mind to leave when he was going down one side of the street door knocking and ANOTHER jones broker was going down the same street (on other side) at the same time.
