Stifel Financial (SF:NYSE) and Ryan
Anyone else hear those rumors?
Everyone's heard them. They've been denied but what does that mean? SF has a very compact management structure which would mean lots of "middle managers" will get the boot along with the entire marketing/product areas. Bank Atlantic is rumored to be suffering under the weight of a huge problem loan and is a really hurry to raise some cash. Wachovia is also a strong rumor but the median production at RB is @ 225 which would mean half the FA's will be toast.
No more Siber...oh no!!
What ever happened to all the middlemgmt @ Gruntal? Gottman, etc?
Worst kept secret on Wall Street.
Speaking of another rumor, what's "up" with Penson (PNSN:NDAQ) other than share price?
Be careful...I might make up another ID ynh_ynh_ynh and pretend to be you pretending to be me.
Heard they are closing smaller offices. Does anyone know what production you need to do to keep you job at Stifel?
This gal's a friend of mine. She used to recruit in the midwest and knows Stifel pretty well. Maybe she can answer some of your questions:
