furiousgeorge86, what's your opinion? Comment below:

TMT banking is pretty good I believe. They're not really tops at anything in particular, they're always just sorta there. As Michael Lewis so aptly put it: "Merrill Lynch was the fat kid who got picked last in every game of kickball, they were just happy to be playing the game."

Obviously not totally true, but whenever I think of Merrill I think of that quote.
