I didn’t read this anywhere else … so thought you all might be interested in case you missed it.

A word like “kickbacks” is finally being used. Maybe the word fraud will be bandied about as well, by those who have the power to do something about it.

When Felix did it from his tweets, I could glance at a line and immediately determine whether or not I wanted to pursue it further. You have too much text, and it takes too long for me to wade through it.

Krawcheck being replaced by Montag is made interesting by the pretense that Tom (“a former Goldman Sachs executive”) wasn’t at Merrill Lynch when BofA bought them.

Which brings me to:

“It was never clear that Sallie Krawcheck gained traction with the retail salesforce,” said Jonathan Finger, managing partner at Finger Interests Ltd, a Houston-based investment management firm that owns Bank of America shares. “I’m not sure she ever had the respect of the bank’s retail brokers.”

translates to “NCNB management (now passing as BofA) cannot work with Merrill Lynch personnel, even though everyone in the industry agrees that BofA/ML should have been a natural fit. So the only solution was to put someone who was at Merrill into the lead position and see if we still have to sell that unit at a major loss sometime in the next 12-18 months.”

Or am I missing something Really Obvious?

Switch back to the way Felix used to do it. Trust me, it’s better.
