Should Hedge Funds Be Avoided?

Hedge funds over the first three months of 2016 suffered their worst quarter in seven years. That prompted investors to withdraw a whopping $15 billion from hedge fund investments, according to a recent report. The reason why investors are fleeing these supposedly elite investment vehicles for the ultra-rich and sophisticated is simple: they’re fed up…

The FTC Has Been Busy

The Federal Trade Commission, an independent agency of the U.S. government, has recently been moving to block mergers between large, powerful corporations. The reasoning behind the FTC’s drive to shut down certain large mergers is simple. Where there are too few providers of a product or service, consumers are likely to get the shaft in…

Despite the Chaos, Analysts Cheered Loudly for Valeant

An investor complaint in 2002 against a Merrill Lynch internet analyst shined a spotlight on the lucrative relationships between analysts at Wall Street banks and their executive counterparts in investment banking. The complaint highlighted how analysts, who typically sounded like independent voices dispensing wisdom on the prospects of high risk internet start-up companies, were actually…

The Supreme Court and Puerto Rico

The sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia and the ensuing political scramble to replace him could have a profound effect on Puerto Rico’s debt crisis. In June, The Supreme Court will decide whether or not Puerto Rico’s public utility, PREPA can restructure its own debts. The Supreme Court will consider reinstating a Puerto Rico law…

Puerto Rico’s “Fuzzy Math”

During the 2000 presidential campaign, George W. Bush famously called Al Gore’s budget plan “fuzzy math.” Bush said Gore promised too much and couldn’t pay for what government programs he had planned. The notion of “fuzzy math” is particularly appropriate today when discussing Puerto Rico’s $72 billion ticking time bomb of debt. Indeed, Puerto Rico’s…

Puerto Rico Is Drowning

The Puerto Rican economy is akin to a drowning man swimming against the tide with no lifeguard in sight. Puerto Rico government bonds continue to be downgraded by the rating agencies. The bonds of its electric utility, PREPA, are rated by Moody’s as “the lowest category possible,” according to a recent CNN Money article. One…

Complex Investment Products Are in the SEC’s Crosshairs

Financial advisors have been pushing complex investment products to their yield-starved retail investors. Such opaque and complex products have names like structured products, equity-indexed annuities, leveraged and inverse exchange-traded funds and alternative mutual funds. Notice the abundance of hyphens in such investments. Maybe a good rule of thumb for Mom and Pop investors is, if…

Shadow Banking: A New Danger Zone in the Financial System Following the Financial Crisis

Following the 2008 financial crisis, Congress passed a set of laws, Dodd-Frank, which gave federal regulators broader powers to establish rules and regulations to prevent Wall Street from causing another financial meltdown. Among the issues which Dodd Frank supposedly addressed was the de-leveraging of banks and the reduction or elimination of the “risk taking” function…

The Fiduciary Duty Standard for Stock Brokers: Signs of Life!

Following the financial crisis, Congress passed Dodd-Frank. The legislation authorized the Securities Exchange Commission to enact rules for a “fiduciary duty standard” in which stock brokers, at firms like Merrill Lynch and UBS, would be required to put the customer’s interest first. This fiduciary standard stands in sharp contrast with the existing “suitability” standard in…

The Securities Industry Labels Efforts to Protect Investors as Too Costly

A showdown is coming between the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority – FINRA – and the securities Industry lobbyists, namely the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association – SIFMA – over increasing investor protection. The industry’s self-regulator, FINRA is often maligned as being too soft on the securities industry. It’s funded by the industry, and many…

Wall Street’s Breach of Trust

Decades ago, Wall Street and its big banks were revered and were a source of trust for ordinary investors who relied on the integrity, advice and financial guidance of these firms. Indeed, Wall Street spent a fortune creating brand names like Smith Barney and Paine Weber, advertising a tradition of trust for their clients. Charlie…

It’s High Time to Put the Investor First and Create a Fiduciary Standard for Brokers

There’s a simple universal rule in business: “put the customer’s interests first.” Remarkably, this tried and true maxim does not apply in the world of investment recommendations to customers. In the 2008 legislation called Dodd-Frank, which followed the financial crisis, Congress authorized the Securities Exchange Commission to pass a “fiduciary duty” rule, which would require…
