Wall Street is a funny business. All you have is your reputation. Taint it and someone else will fill your shoes. Longevity comes from maintaining that reputation.
Ask Jack Grubman, the All-Star telecom analyst from Salomon Smith Barney stuck recommending the Worldcom and Global Crossing disasters. Or uber-banker Frank Quattrone, who did a few too many skanky IPOs at CS First Boston. Or Morgan Stanley’s Mary "Queen of the Net" Meeker. Or Henry Blodget, whose $400 price target on Amazon.com’s stock got him a job at Merrill Lynch.
They probably won’t tell you anything. But I will. I sat next to Jack Grubman when we both started at Paine Webber. Later at Morgan Stanley, I did deals with Frank Quattrone and was a mentor to Mary Meeker. During the heat of the Internet bubble, I befriended Henry Blodget. Have I got some great stories for you.
Add to these four folks the strategists and axes, barking dogs and Piranhas, ducks and momos, Vomit Comets and Joe Six-Stock, and you’ll get a clear picture of how Wall Street works and how analysts and bankers went from merely being famous to become notorious.
We really were just pieces of Wall Street Meat. The Street is a disgustingly lucrative capital-raising machine -- its players keep half of the revenues they generate. The tales of Jack, Frankie, Mary, Henry and all the rest of us are important, if only to show how powerful and then how fickle Wall Street can be. Creeping hubris is terminal.About the Author:
