Stock Analysts...this should make Tony happy

The settlement came out today to punish analysts and companies that created the stock market run in the late 90's.

In total the settlement cost companies like Merrill Lynch, First Boston, Citigroup, etc. $1.4 billion dollars. It also cost Smith Barney telecom analyst $15 million and Merril Lynch tech analyst $4 million and banned them from wall street for life.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. market regulators announced on Monday the final terms of a $1.4 billion Wall Street research settlement, ending about two years of investigations into allegations that analysts issued biased research to gain investment banking business.

Regulators called the settlement the largest in Wall Street history. Three of the most profitable brokerages during the late 1990s market boom -- Citigroup Inc.'s Salomon Smith Barney unit (C), Credit Suisse Group's CSFB (CSGZn) (CSR) and Merrill Lynch & Co. (MER) -- settled charges of securities fraud, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

All 10 of the participating investment banks, including Goldman Sachs Group (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MWD), settled lesser charges of violating market regulations. Regulators singled out Henry Blodget, a former Internet analyst at Merrill Lynch, and Jack Grubman, a former telecommunications analyst at Salomon Smith Barney, who agreed to pay almost $20 million in fines and be barred permanently from working in the financial services industry.

Seriously though it sucks that thye caused a lot of problems. A lot of people are out of work now becasue all of the corparations base everything off of where their stock price is. Then you have people manipulating that and eveeyones price goes into the dirt causing all of my friends in the telcom industry to be laid off.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
