If you cant get in with Merrill, Morgan, Lehman, UBS... is MAXIM GROUP a second tier firm, still above the bucket shops......?

BR, you stay away from her... She and I got this thing going on... I love her, she has no clue who I am... Someday I will run into her at the IVY, our eyes will meet, and she will fall lovingly into my arms... It will be glorious...
Yup.... I have issues....

...or you could just stalk her, until she falls in love with you  or signs an ACAT.

or a 1035 exchange from the dunce shes with over to me... The service and personal attention I will bestow upon her would surely lead to some referrals to her celeb friends....

Maxim Group's senior management all come from a now defunct NYSE member firm named Stuart Coleman which was officed in some dreary digs on 42nd Street at Lexington--down the street from Grand Central Station.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s the Mafia was making inroads into small, marginally capitalized, NYSE member firms.  I happen to know a lot about one of them, AT Brod and Company, that became nothing more than an arm of the mob.
I had done industry committee work with Mr. Brod--a courtly gentleman, who at age 82, sold his company to the wrong people.  His son had embezzled most of the capital and it was a last gasp effort to keep the firm that bore his name solvent and to provide capital to fund the rest of his life.  He and I had a long lunch in the NYSE member's dining room, I'll never forget this aging lion of Wall Street sitting in the corner with his back to the room crying.
The scuttlebutt in the street was that Stuart Coleman was another one of the NYSE firms that ended up with ties to organized crime.

Sad but true....
 
Anyone remember the "Woobistics" episode from the Sopranos?  Closer to reality that you might realize!!
Capital and cash flow are precious in our business.  Despite some folks' perceptions, I guard mine quite closely!
