ER besides NY?Could anyone tell me if there are ER opportunities outside of NY, particularly Atlanta/Southeast? Doesn't have to be BB, but come to think of it, do any boutiques really provide such a service? Also, I'm guessing Wachovia and Suntrust will come up, so if anyone can comment on "prestige" of research... 8 years 3 months
PWM=Sales?I know not too many people on here are concerned with or even really respect PWM, but can anyone give me a definitive answer about the degree to which this is essentially sales versus actual risk management, discovering investment opportunities, etc.? It seems like I've heard some places like GS... 8 years 3 months
CFA ValueCan anyone comment on the value of having a CFA for 1) Equity Research 2) PWM 3) PE 4) HF in relative terms? Also, I noticed on the CFA website that it is possible to take the exams starting your senior year of college. Would this add any value to a resume for a recent grad? 8 years 3 months

Resume opinions..lack of ecsIf you want to keep WSP and CSC on your resume, just do under a heading such as "Additional Information" and include your interests etc. there as well. That's an easy way of getting miscellaneous info. onto a resume. Since you are still a sophomore, you should really try to get involved with some... 7 years 7 months
Another DCF.I'm not sure about who makes the decisions in an I-Banking environment, as that's not where I am. However, I would say that an analyst will be told to make the model and will then be given several edits and revisions from the Associates or on up the line. That's my understanding from others of... 7 years 7 months
Another DCF.I would say that 10% sales growth is a bit high. I would try to stay in the 5%-7% range for the first few years, and drop to 3%-4% for the terminal value. Really, it all depends on what kind of company you are valuing. If you are valuing a start-up company, 10+% would be much more believable. If... 7 years 7 months
Assignment help - Researching A StockRead the 10-K first and then try to get your hands on some analyst reports if possible. I think even Yahoo! Finance, Morningstar, Reuters, etc. give growth estimates though. 8 years 2 months
Who else is outraged that Imus got fired?Apparently you and I don't see eye to eye on much goldstandard. Do you honestly think that a bunch of white fat cat record execs pushed for more use of the N-word and derogatory terms for women? Sure Run DMC and Digital Underground and the like were not vile the way the majority of rap artists... 8 years 2 months
Do you believe in God?I agree that any debate is not going to get either of us anywhere, but it is still interesting. "Well, fraser, if this is "proof" then evolution wouldn't be a (theory), would it" This is a common misconception amongst people who believe in intelligent design, creation, etc. Just because... 8 years 2 months
Do you believe in God?goldstandard, I understand that death is an inevitable part of life, but it is not as harmonious or guided by a supreme being as people seem to think. There are so many instances of someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time that I find it hard to believe that they were somehow guided... 8 years 2 months
Do you believe in God?My point with the slime mold is that if God is so powerful to be able to create Man from dirt, then why would he bother with making slime mold on some planet that we may not even find? Also, why would he create life on other planets? Wouldn't he have his hands full with everyone/thing on earth? I... 8 years 2 months
Do you believe in God?I wanted to pose a question to those that are well-versed in the Bible and consider themselves believers in God: Given the size of the universe, isn't there a reasonable probability that there exists some form of life (even if that means slime mold) somewhere besides earth? This would also have... 8 years 2 months
