I would invest it in the stock market, real estate or simply put it in the bank (savings, cd, etc).

of course, if you don't want to take this route, you could always go on vacation anywhere.

i agree

Bear market....time to buy.....hopefully there will be a little bit left over for the previously mentioned vacation as well.

Going to the West Indies to watch the next cricket world cup and enjoy the pleasent weather escaping the gloomy rough weather in London.

Feel like pampering yourself, or bored of working on a comp at 2 am? Check out this site: http://www.xperiencedays.com
Can't be too bad.

Who in their right mind thinks this is a bear market?

I second that.

Get as far from the office as possible. You've worked hard, reward yourself a little for all the time an effort.

Spend a week in Bermuda catching up on your sleep.

a few ideas:

-an hour massage from a professional (happy ending optional)
-a motorcycle...come on, do you really care if you die?
-down payment on a Ferrari
-or you could be smart and invest it

Go to Dubai!!!

Jul 24, 2006

I'm pouring the lot into real estate and funds (merger arb, index) so I dont have to do this IB thing for ever....

Jul 30, 2006

Dubai is unreal. You could stay at the world of islands, the underwater hotel or the seven star hotel that tiger woods hit golf balls off the top of

Blow 5% of the bonus on a one night bender, put 25% of it into a weeklong trip, and invest the other 70%...hopefully you will have a big enough bonus that the 25% can get you somewhere nice, otherwise just spend more and invest less.

Vintage Cartier watch

Jul 30, 2006

Now we're talking. Ideally you'd inherit one but if that's not the case then buying a vintage is the way to go. They're not even that expensive.

Although I'd like to visit Dubai at some point in time, once the tallest building in the world is finished, etc...I can imagine Dubai being more commercialized than the New York, New York hotel in Vegas on New Years.

My vote...French Polynesia.

Ok I'll bite, I wish I had a job that paid a bonus.

hookers and beer

Sep 3, 2006

There's always some sort of nutty shit being constructed there. I mean, there's a tennis court near the top of that "Sail" building. My only questions is, as an avid tennis player, what happens when a ball gets over the fence? Is it neccessary to alert the people who might be below you to look out for falling objects?

Sep 3, 2006

"-a motorcycle...come on, do you really care if you die?"

this is the funniest fucking thing in the entire thread, and i feel like i'm the only one who noticed.

on a much more serious note, i'd recommend doing something like this: if your bonus is $65k, for exmaple, get ten $6500 hookers (clean, pretty ones) over the course of 12 hrs. or, if you're really ambitious, twenty for $3,250 each over 12 hrs. you'd sacrifice some quality, but my god what a feat that would be. and don't tell me it can't be done: that's 1 or 2 hookers per hour. so it's not that time is a problem; it's whether or not you have the endurance.

Saving for B-school could make sense. First to pay for it and then to be able to live properly once enrolled.

id buy a million dollar car.
You couldn't pull me over, and even if you did I'd activate my car's wings and I'd fly away.

That would be pretty sweet minus the crew. However a catamaran with 4 cabins must be pretty diesel, so I suppose it beats having 9 buddies learn to sail.

The season is afoot, let's revive this thread. My list:

Breguet Classique Regulator. Apple I-Phone. Annual driving range membership at Chelsea Piers. Bottle service at Cain. Unforgettable night at Scores. Throw a bum $100. VEGAS the RIGHT way. Back to work...

This is why we do this job.

Granted, but are you not even planning what you will do with a possible bonus? I guess if your 23 you'll just giggle ridiculously and splurge it on crap for a job well done for the past 16 years at school.

You're going to "spend" a lot of it on taxes. Personally I'd say take a nice little trip somewhere pleasant with some of it and bank the rest.

How about saving it for 3-4 years and open up a franchise by studying the market in your region
