The little investment bank that could will come back:

- PEG is down to .77x, P/E is at 14x
- Stayed profitable last year with margins of 53.6% Gross, 44.7% Op, 29.1% Net (so controlled comp costs)
- Grew revenue 85.4% TTM, 73.4% MRQ
- Returned 82.5% on Equity
- Covers interest over 28 times

Banks are recapitalizing. There is +$80 trillion of wealth in the world. Low stock prices means opportunities for well run outfits.
