So I noticed this new scottrade ad portraying this unscrupulous cowboy fa in a limo. Anyone else bothered by this?

All's fair in advertising and war.

discounters are a joke.

3/4 of their biz is dumba*ses trading $2 crap names.

wannabes.    



I like the one that goes



"green shoots"

"maybe its time to get back into the market"

(after the mkt up 80 GD %)

"although...different this time..."



in other words, Im not going to blow out at the bottom because my butt hole is so tight i cant breath......



No one makes money at discounters.   

they blow themselves up and firm reloads new know-it-all piss ants

My thoughts exactly! Does anyone remember the one from etrade or one of those guys where the FA is talking in his office to a client on the phone and then walks out the door of his private yacht? That was funny.



It's all crap, real clients are not running to discounts. If anything they weed out the small guys leaving the better clients for us....

I think it is funny. I have seen quite a few come through our office that they may have used to cast this role. They always turn out to be wanabees that talk a great game and produce little. I do not think any of these ads give advisors a bad name. Bad advisors do a good job of it on thier own!

beating the risk free rate of return over a long period aint easy

Jan 12, 2010 2:24 pm

I just saw one where the FA says



"the call center said you called"



thats pretty funny

Actually, a lot of my clients think we actually ride around in purple helicopters.

 
But to be honest, those commercials with the baby that talks.....funnier than sh*t.  Laugh every time I watch them.

I'll bet Windy was pissed when they put him in a commercial.

or the dude from TD ..........law and order or something?  Wanna kill that fool

 
 
Yes, those TD adds are such a load of crap.  You get this hot chick talking about "heat mapping" which is apparently where the money is moving after looking at a colorful computer screen.  What a gimmick! 
 
The first prospect that tells me he's using "heat mapping" is going to get my pen through his eye.

"so I don't have to subsidize your lack of golfing skills"  HAHA!  Love that commercial.

Hey mlgone, can you get us a full screen version of your avatar? I'm getting a headache squinting at her.

Mlgone, thanks! Is that your kid sister? On a side note, let's hope Tiger doesn't get a peek at this. We could have a major setback in his quest for marital fidelity at that sex addict rehab Clinic in Arizona. She meets all of his discriminating criteria: 1.) White, 2.) Not Elin.
