Future is uncertain...

Our costs are down, but prices are down too... A typical ETF charges 0.1% a year, compared with perhaps 1% for an active fund. You can buy ETFs on your phone. An ongoing price war means the cost of trading has collapsed, and markets are... —  read more

Not buying the job mobility push

For several years Fidelity has been pushing the job mobility thing. Being a white male in my 50s, I was resisting it for a long time because I didn't want to end up the new, inexperienced, guy on a team and be easy pickin's to lay off. But, in the... —  read more

Be smart, not just old.

(This was a reply to a different post. May work here too.) There will be reductions. So, be smart about it. Not angry. Fidelity is run by a very few, very protected people. Just look around. It’s easier to dump thousands of calls on reps instead of... —  read more

The only guarantee is there will be reductions

The only guarantee is there will be reductions...(This is Fidelity we are talking about!) Whether it’s wrapped in a silver VBO wrapper, or poorly disguised as a ham handed “re-org / eliminations (by conference call) with ‘new jobs’ for which everyone... —  read more

I replied on my own to FINRA 8210 letter and I was sure it was a thorough and accurate response. Last week I got another 8210 letter. Did anyone else experience this?

FIDELITY CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ?

Anyone hear about this ? Fidelity calls the charge an “infrastructure fee.” The fee reportedly amounts to 0.15 percent of not only Fidelity customer assets, but also of the mutual-fund company’s industry-wide assets. It was implemented in 2016... —  read more

Latest on layoffs?

Any news on layoffs? There were mentions of another round in February but then all talk of it died down. I'm hoping that means the rumor was debunked as false, but it would be nice to know for sure. I know we'll be seeing more layoffs in 2019, but... —  read more

Market in the toilet = layoffs

Worst week since 2008, which was the last time there were deep layoffs at the company. PAS / mutual fund revenue just took a 20% haircut in the last few months. Money markets are the new cash cow, but is it enough to keep the ax from coming down?

T-Minus 31 days and counting

So here I am, it was a good run, Boston times were fun, very fun and I was not s-xist and discriminatory, but I guess I will need to pay the price for my forefathers. You really have to wonder what you get for being a good, clean and honest person at... —  read more

Bonus ?

For all of you who complain about Abby and her greed ... what do you think of the 20% bonus most associates will receive next week in addition to the 10% Profit Sharing we receive in January ? I don't that that is greed at all.
