Least Helpful Call Today…So Far
The least helpful call from Wall Street’s Finest thus far today is most certainly the downgrade of Vonage, that Poster Child of Failed Initial Public Offerings whose stock closed at $3.00 on Friday—a rather dramatic discount to its 52-week high and IPO price of $17.25—from “Peer Perform” to “Market Perform” by one of Wall Street's Bigs.
Stated reason for the downgrade? “Too Many Risks.”
No, I am not making that up; and yes, the morning is still young.
Nominations for even less helpful calls than that are welcome.
