Well, not quite all his glory, but you get the idea. Photographer and regular on CNBC's Fast Money, Jon Najarian, snapped this picture of his bro smoking a cigar and soaking up some rays in Las Vegas. I wonder if Pete is cool with Jon posting this picture for all the world to see? I get the feeling Pete could careless, really. No, that's not a sweater vest. And yeah, that's a real tan.
The Najarian brothers are in Las Vegas to do some re-takes for Hangover 3. They play a couple of gamblers whose suitcase full of cash is
Apple hit a low of close to $483 a share today since it peaked at around $705, does CNBC's Joe Terranova
still think Apple is a generational buy
? He said he bought some Apple shares at $540 and was buying more when Apple was around $520 a share when the video below was recorded. Terranova called it a March 2009 moment, when Apple was trading for under $100 a share.
You do have to say that Apple is close to bottoming out here. That Terranova is right but just off buy 50-100 points give or take - yeah that's a lot
The new Henry Blodget
, who runs the Business Insider and shows up on CNBC from time to time, is very calm and rational, there's no pumping up stocks just because Merrill Lynch wants to do business with these companies. Ten to twelves years have gone by, it's a new day on Wall Street, and everyone deserves a second chance and Henry seems like a good guy.
Back in 2000 though, during the tech bubble, when Blodget worked for Merrill Lynch, he gave conflicting ratings of stocks, publicly he touted Internet stocks as buys, privately though, he berated them
I wonder who would win in a race between Guy Adami and one of the Najarian brothers, Jon or Pete? Both Najarian brothers played NFL football, you know. Or what if Charlie Gasparino raced Adami or they faced off in some sort of pull up or push up competition for charity, who would win?
Gasparino, who used to work at CNBC but moved to Fox Business, works out regularly, you know - at various parks in New York
. I'm guessing they're about the same age but I think Gasparino might have the edge on Adami.
Adami is set to
CNBC Fast Money contributor, lawyer, father, actor, film consultant, author, founder of fund of hedge funds SkyBridge Capital, philanthropist, potential Aflac Duck, popinjay
, Wall Street's human pinata
, and Jersey Shore breakout star, Anthony Scaramucci
, gets a lovely profile in NY Mag
There a number of fantastic quotes in the piece, but the highlight comes right at the get go - I can just picture Scaramucci's pearly whites:
“A lot of people are upset with me about Sarah Palin,” says Scaramucci, his white, even-toothed smile suggesting this couldn’t make him happier. “I am a total shit-stirrer,” he confirms.
Sandwiched between Pete Najarian and Joe Terranova is the beautiful Fast Money host Melissa Lee in a very warm looking Russian snow hat of some kind. Jon Najarian
, who most likely took the picture, says Lee looks like a James Bond villain.
She needs a couple sidekicks though, maybe Nick Nack and Oddjob from past 007 movies. Wait, I think the Najarian brothers would be even better sidekicks what with their ponytails and size and strength. They'd be perfect. I wonder what her weapon of choice would be? Looks like she could do some damage with that purse.
OK, so it's pretty damn funny when Fast Money's Stephen Weiss says, "I also like Dicks quit a bit", but he was talking about Dicks Sporting Goods!!! And the stock for Dicks, as in the ticker DKS. You know, the store that sells hats and coats and baseball bats and gloves and things like that with the emblems of various professional sports teams on them.
You've also got to give the rest of the Fast Money crew, from Melissa Lee to Guy Adami, for letting this one slide and not piling on Mr. Weiss when he made the mistake. Those
These potential defaults in Europe are not as big of an issue as the media makes them out to be. Who cares James says. The consumer spent money at amazing levels on Black Friday. Stock buy backs are increasing. The stock market is incredibly cheap right here.
Howard Lindzon is one funny cat. He was on CNBC's Fast Money today and said, "Citibank is a shitty business."
If you follow him on Twitter you might notice he didn't get much sleep last night, as he seemed to be tweeting late into the night and then was up early for the CNBC show. Perhaps that was why he make the mistake - he was just worn out and let it slip.
"Banking is a great business, Citibank is a shitty business," he said.
"Can I get a bleep here? One bleep!" Lindzon joked afterwards.
However, Lindzon is also one very
So, what with Research in Motion trading down to around book value, and not at a price since 2002, before it ever made any money, a couple of CNBC's Fast Money traders are thinking it might be time to buy some RIM. The stock touched a new 52 week low of $18.55 a share. Ouch.
You'd think that what with the mobile space expected to only grow there would be room for Blackberries across the world. Someone has to want and need a keyboard on their phone, right? And, they certainly have to be a potential takeover target by maybe someone
