Bloomberg’s Matt Miller in an Amazing Plaid Ensemble

Comments Off on Bloomberg’s Matt Miller in an Amazing Plaid Ensemble
Bloomberg's Matt Miller interviewing Wolfgang Puck in an amazing plaid jacket and scarf combo. It's almost like he's wearing a new kind of camouflage that's all plaid - in case you needed to blend in with the carpet at a Las Vegas casino. It's a jacket and scarf combo worthy of Kramer. Hard to tell from the angle of the shot, but it does look like Miller has shaved off his mustache. Hat tip to Bloomberg TV producer Alyssa Zahler for the

Comments Off on Sally Krawcheck Talks Wall Street Compensation….While Not Working on Wall Street?
Sally Krawcheck appeared on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers" with Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker to talk Wall Street compensation, but wouldn't go into internal discussions of Wall Street compensation when she work on Wall Street for Citi Bank and then Bank of America - that would be inappropriate.

Comments Off on Why Trish Regan Left CNBC for Bloomberg
Here's the reason why Trish Regan left CNBC for Bloomberg: Humpback whales. While Regan was work over at CNBC, she did in-depth stories on pot plants, over at Bloomberg, she gets to swim with humpback whales with Richard Branson. Sure, of course this is no where near the entire story of why Regan left CNBC, but you've got to say going out on Branson's yacht ain't a bad way to work as a business reporter and beats getting a contact high when you're touring a indoor marijuana operation in California. And no, sorry, there are no shots of Trish Regan

Comments Off on Nouriel Roubini Says ReVirginization Won’t Work
The Germans want the rest of the European Union to submit to their austerity plans, become virgins again for two years. Roubini says it's impossible. The quote comes at around the 20 minute mark at the end of the video below:
"The Germans say, “you lost your virginity. Now you sign a contract; you say, ‘I’m a boring virgin.’ Be abstinent for the next two years. Show me your soul and two years from now, we’re going to get married. But today, I commit to marriage today? Forget it.” (DealBreaker)
By the way, notice Roubini's lack of a tie and

Comments Off on Will Mayor Bloomberg be Buying a Soda Stream, Coming to a Store Near You?
I picture Mayor Michael Bloomberg at home guzzling straight from the soda stream machine while nobody's looking. Today SodaStream (SODA) Chief Executive Officer Daniel Birnbaum confirmed that SodaStream would be selling its products in stores nationwide in the United States. This doesn’t come as a big shock to shareholders as they were waiting for the news. The announcement may however help a company that has a large short position rally on a short squeeze. Of the 20 million shares of SodaStream outstanding, over half of them are held short. Of course, when an investor shorts a stock they are hoping the

Comments Off on Kathy Ireland Not Making Out With Trish Regan
Kathy Ireland of Sports Illustrated swimsuit fame talks about her billion dollar retail empire, Kathy Ireland World Wide, on Bloomberg with Trish Regan. Ireland's company started out selling socks and then t-shirts and then dresses, and went on from there. It's grown so much it now rivals Martha Stewart, selling everything a women with extra money would ever need, like this fur coat. Hopefully she doesn't get entangled in some crazy insider trading scandal like Martha. Kathy, don't buy any risky stocks that even resemble Imclone. And no, she wasn't wearing a wet see through swimsuit during the interview

Sara Eisen Is a Popcorn & Truffle Oil Addict

Comments Off on Sara Eisen Is a Popcorn & Truffle Oil Addict
Bloomberg's Sara Eisen, who perhaps has the brightest and most infectious smile in all of Wall Street (Dare you to look at her and not start to smile), unfortunately, is addicted to popcorn and truffle oil. As if popcorn isn't enough, adding truffle oil makes it that much better and that much harder to stop eating once you've started. Eisen eats it constantly and thus has truffle oil all over her fingers all the time. She constantly has to clean off her computer keyboard and cell phone due to this addiction - we're guessing....
"Emergency stop-off at Whole Foods to

Comments Off on I Guess Dick Bove’s Beach House in Spain is On Hold
About a month ago, ubiquitous banking analyst (media shy) Dick Bove told Bloomberg's Trish Regan that buying Morgan Stanley's stock will enable you to buy that house on the coast of Spain you've always dreamed about. Well, since Bove made that call the stock has tumbled, going from around $20 a share to $16, a nice 25% drop. This is what Bove said:
“I think Morgan Stanley will allow you to buy that house on the coast of Spain. I think that stock is so cheap right now, it’s overwhelming. It should be bought and bought very aggressively, right now.”
Here's

Comments Off on Lisa Murphy Leaves Bloomberg
Sadly, Lisa Murphy left Bloomberg this past week due to personal changes in her life. Yeah, it's not clear why she left but it's too bad. She was very smart and new the financial markets in and out.
“Given some of the recent changes in Lisa’s personal life and the recent changes here at Bloomberg, we mutually decided this would be an appropriate time to part ways,” a Bloomberg spokesperson said. “We wish Lisa all the best.” (
