Ideas to torture my banker roomateI downloaded the Blackberry alert notification and randomly set it off on my phone/comp. Anyone have any good ideas/stories? 16 1 year 3 months
Options from a Value Investors Point of ViewI'll preface this by saying I do understand the basic (stressing basics) of option pricing and theory. Recently, some heavily shorted names have seen their prices run up in their prices (and also crash sporadically). Focusing on these companies fundamentals, I came up with a fair price with... 5 3 years 2 weeks
Anyone heard of Copperfield Research?Wrote some amazing short pieces-clear in depth look at accounting shenanigans at smaller firms-but I can't help but think that they have an ulterior motive (nothing sinister-but disclosing shorts always needs to be viewed with caution the same way insider selling is). Not denying their facts, but a... 4 3 years 1 month

However for #3, I disagree, as more firms are promoting from within, and the MBA is no longer a hard requirement for many jobs. I'm also disillusioned with school at this point. Undergrad was a joke, and I've spoken to many HBS grads in my city now and they all... 37 2 months 3 weeks

Only like 20% of the class uploaded their info, and I think there is some self selection bias because the more impressive kids aren't rushing to upload their classcards. Either way, think what another commented said is true about truly phenomenal people have... 37 2 months 3 weeks
Holy shit. I'm going through the exact same thing...Holy shit. I'm going through the exact same thing. HBS 2+2 admit, its been 4 years. Really don't feel like going. I've looked at the classlist so far, and besides the finance kids (who they accept fewer and fewer of), no one is that impressive. The classes they are taking seem so outdated and... 37 2 months 3 weeks
Congratulations, and that's great you were able...Congratulations, and that's great you were able to find your entrepreneurial side. I had the same transformation and its really powerful. It gives you the confidence in yourself that you would never find in a structured company. Most early employees are developers, so for nearly every one on WSO... 124 3 months 1 day

The jokes are more about making fun of the fact he has to finish his year to get his bonus when he knows he'll be off to the buyside soon-making it all the more... 16 1 year 3 months
