Glitch?If I enter "wallstreetoasis.com" rather than "www.wallstreetoasis.com" into my browser (Chrome), it just takes me to a screen that says, "It works!", in a large and bold font. Anyone else getting this? 5 years 2 months
Champ League Final (on Fox) Anybody else able to watch the Champ League final right now? Who are you rooting for? I'm pulling for Bayern (I'm as much a fan of them as I am Juventus). I'm also hoping that enough Inter players get hurt, that they actually have to play an italian player. 5 years 3 months
URGENT: Sending a CapIQ project to a potential...Hey all, Just got off of a phone interview with a firm, and they'd like me to send some previous work. I have a Comps project that was automated to CapIQ. I don't have CapIQ on my computer, and all the cells say "#NAME?" as a result. The people I will be sending it to have CapIQ. Will they... 5 years 9 months
Dumb Excel/CapIQ Formatting QuestionOk, so I got EBITDA margins from the CapIQ company tearsheets, and the EBIT margins from the CapIQ formula builder. The former is just formatted as a percentage (5.2%); the latter is automatically formatted as a number (5.2). So, when I go to reformat the EBIT margin to a percentage, it spits back... 6 years 1 month
Myers BriggsJust out of curiosity, what is everyone's Myers-Briggs type (if you know it)? It would be interesting to see what is most common among this group. Myself, I am an INTJ. Slightly expressed I (can be an E in certain situations), strong on the NTJ. 6 years 3 months
Supplemental Liquidity ProvidersHello, never been to the traders train, usually stick to the other side of the wall. But, I have a question. I was reading this from Zero Hedge: http://zerohedge.blogspot.com/2009/05/observations-on-nyse-program-trading.html, and two things stuck out: 1) "The NYSE report that Zero Hedge... 6 years 3 months

Of course, if the PE firm had unlimited capital, this focus would change. That is not the case, however. The OP needs to know how PE actually operates, not what makes sense to... 4 years 11 months
PE firms are not in the business of "fixing up"...PE firms are not in the business of "fixing up" businesses. Sure, some actually market themselves as being that, and once they have a company, they will try to do so cheaply. However, what they are in the business of is magnifying their equity positions via paying down debt with stable cash flows.... 4 years 11 months

In fact, he may have joined up with someone truly better than him. A closer. That isn't the argument, however. 2. It is difficult to speculate what... 5 years 1 month

Rose sort of leads the team with his performance, but Chi is missing a strong leadership personality. This free agent season looked perfect for us to fill that one hole. 5 years 1 month
