04/26/2017

​Credit Suisse needs alot of therapy and maybe a board-level/ C-suite lobotomy to bilge-pump out its misguided strategies and corporate culture. Sell across the capital stack even with rights offering that is not enough. Risk-reg among most dangerous in the world. CS CS CS CS

GS 1Q17: What is GS? A Banker, A Baker, A Candlestick Maker?

04/18/2017
