ER besides NY?Could anyone tell me if there are ER opportunities outside of NY, particularly Atlanta/Southeast?

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... 19 9 years 1 month
CFA ValueCan anyone comment on the value of having a CFA for 1) Equity Research 2) PWM 3) PE 4) HF in relative terms?

And plus, by then there WILL be cheaper alternatives developed by other companies that actually adapted to changing times.

Not all oil goes to run engines like everyone...Not all oil goes to run engines like everyone seems to think. You have to think about a large proportion of plastics and not to mention lubrications. Exxon pumps that oil out and refines it, but doesn't necessarily make gasoline out of it. So even if the world is able to switch, as sleepy said,... 93 2 weeks 2 days
As far as I'm concerned, they are one of the few...As far as I'm concerned, they are one of the few companies who truly understand the idea of creation of shareholder value. With ethanol only netting about a $0.03 profit right now, which would turn negative the minute oil went to $40 or corn went to $5, bravo to Exxon for sticking to what it does... 93 2 weeks 2 days

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... 3 8 years 5 months

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... 3 8 years 5 months

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?
