Have you managed to make your way on over to Animal (not the restaurant) yet? I know, I know! Don’t worry if you’re experiencing some minor confusion, we’re about to make things crystal clear for you.

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


The Strokes[Photo via] Last night the city of Los Angeles was on fuego with setting a new precedent for just how “L.A.” this town can get at the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Launch event.

So let’s discuss the five major ways L.A. took it to a new level and became a caricature of itself last night. Read the full story

SAC Capital Needs Help Decorating, Naming Its New Building

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


SAC Capital is reportedly close to signing a lease at 510 Madison that would give the firm the second through fifth floors, 66,000 square feet, and naming rights to the building (which comes with a health club and pool, meaning everyone will be required to pass a swim test- if you never learned how, I highly suggest you start dunking your head underwater during tonight’s bath to get yourself used to it, as floaties will not be permitted). While the Stamford office will always be number one, this much space and responsibility cannot be ignored and means we need to get to work.

This is our To Do List:

1. Name: so many ways to go on this one. We could always just make it the SAC Capital building with each 50 foot letter cast in bronze, positioned vertically down the side of the building. We could be vindictive with S a D Patty Tower. We could go subtle with: 3/50 Madison Avenue.

2. Decorating tips: in order to make this place feel like home, we need little interesting touches and flourishes everywhere. For instance, like the national debt clock there could be a Steve’s net worth clock ticking on the side of the building. Is there a need for some kind of embalmed pet or are we over that? Perhaps a subtle nod with some bearskin rugs? Those hula girl lamps Steve’s always wanted but were deemed too tacky for the Stamford office?

3. Use of space: the new building will be considerably larger than the old New York office at 540 Madison Avenue- how should we make use of the extra room? Everyone is allotted enough space for 27 monitors? Reflection rooms for meditation/quiet time? A 200-foot roped off Dance Revolution stage? Guest bedrooms in case someone wants to spend the night? A Dominos-wing with one room devoted just to cheesy bread? A sweatshop where you know what will be made, as a certain clothing manufacturer has been jacking up its prices?

Berkshire’s David Sokol: I Did Nothing Wrong (CNBC)
“I don’t believe I did anything wrong…I made the decision to buy the shares because I thought it was a good investment and I’d do it again tomorrow.” Sokol says it didn’t occur to him to sell the shares once Buffett showed interest in Lubrizol because he would have no influence over Berkshire’s decision.

Galleon Calls Detail Goldman Insight (WSJ)
“I heard yesterday from somebody who’s on the board of Goldman Sachs that they are going to lose $2 per share,” Mr. Rajaratnam said on the tape. “The Street has them making $2.50.” “Really,” said David Lau, a Galleon portfolio manager in Singapore. “So what he was telling me was that uh, Goldman, the quarter’s pretty bad. They have zero revenues because their trading revenues are offset by asset losses, and to date they have lost $2 per share,” Mr. Rajaratnam says on the call. “I don’t think that’s built into Goldman Sachs’ stock price.”

Dimon Warns of Regulatory ‘Nail’ in Coffin (FT)
Regulators are negotiating international capital standards for the biggest banks but the chief executive of JP Morgan said setting the new requirements too high, or allowing overseas banks to calculate their asset base differently, could disadvantage US banks and was already stifling economic growth. “If you want to set it so high that no big bank ever goes bankrupt… I think that would greatly diminish growth,” he told a US Chamber of Commerce conference. Too large a disparity in capital requirements between Europe and the US would mean “you’re pretty much putting the nail in our coffin for big American banks,” he said.

Insider Case Puts Focus On FDA Systems (WSJ)
“Darrts is a brilliant system,” said a former FDA department head, but vulnerable because it allows anyone who knows the application number and has a password to get a full status report on any drug approval application.

Schapiro SEC Seen Ineffectual Amid Dodd-Frank Funding Curbs (Bloomberg)
On a stormy night in October 2009, Mary Schapiro, the newly appointed head of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, returned to her alma mater, Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to be inducted into the hall of fame for student athletes. Receiving her award, she grasped the podium, confessed she was near tears and spoke of how she had never even seen a lacrosse game before attending college. “But I knew if I worked hard and persevered, I might ultimately play,” she said. She competed for four years and served as captain of the team in her senior year, when it went 7-4. Today, Schapiro, 55, faces challenges a good bit nastier than a muddy lacrosse game.

Geithner: Biggest Problem Is ‘Not Complicated’ (Reuters)
While major currencies moved freely and most emerging economies were well along that path, there were still some with little exchange rate flexibility and extensive capital controls, he said. This asymmetry fueled inflation risks in the economies whose exchange rates are undervalued, magnified currency appreciation in others and also generated protectionist pressures, he added. “This is the most important problem to solve in the international monetary system today. But it is not a complicated problem to solve,” he said, according to the prepared text of his remarks.

Geithner Calls For Rate Flexibility (WSJ)
Mr. Geithner didn’t specifically name China’s currency in remarks prepared for delivery at the Nanjing forum, but his comments were clearly aimed at least in part at Beijing, which closely manages the yuan’s exchange rate. He characterized the mismatch between fixed and floating exchange rates as “the most important problem to solve in the international monetary system today,” and he said flexible exchange rates can help countries better absorb shocks and better tailor monetary policies to their individual circumstances.

Will Barclays Turn Its Back On Britain? (WSJ)
The bank is undertaking detailed analysis of likely regulatory hurdles to switching its domicile to New York and has had preliminary conversations with U.S. regulatory officials, says a person involved in the process. It estimates the cost of a switch at “several hundreds of millions of pounds” in addition to the £30 million ($48 million) it expects to spend on preparatory work. No decision is expected until at least September, after the direction of U.K. financial regulation is clearer and key elements of the U.S. Dodd-Frank financial-overhaul bill have been clarified.
