I "Like" A. “Tommy” Belesis (in the WS Two movie), but...

If you are not familiar with Mr. Thomas Belesis, he is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of John Thomas Financial Inc. He also starred in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010).

Hits and misses there, Palm Beach is not the new WS, yet many other cities have risen to prominence: in the US, notably SLC, UT, not so much NV, and in Asia, Singapore is beefing up. In the E.U, Ireland has a tax rate of only 12.5% explaining why so many businesses have rechristened their charter there.

BusinessWeek 2 months ago wrote up about the firm:

Notes:

[in their lower Manhattan's office]... speakers blast music from the "Rocky" movies.
- Like that music

vending machine stocked solely with Red Bull
-Like that, even if I don't drink it.

This week, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority accused Belesis and John Thomas Financial of front-running customers' trades in a penny stock called America West Resources Inc. (AWSRQ) The Securities and Exchange Commission last month accused Belesis and his firm of fraud in a separate matter. They have denied any wrongdoing and said they would defend themselves.

Maybe I'll keep my "Like" on Facebook only.
