LAZ is my top pick over the next year as M&A activity recovers. Acquisition targets are looking cheaper, which will push LAZ back into advising a lot of deals. Now 42% off its 2015 high, LAZ has been unfairly beaten up over declining revenues, which have more to do with deals that have yet to be completed than with any permanent weakness in M&A. Not really a bank, so it's understandable that it has fallen much further than a JPM or WFC, but LAZ is cheaper than most financials and pays a much higher dividend.

LAZ was extremely beaten up. Have been positionin very well in Europe. Very well respected and this stock should go to $40 in early Oct with longer range potential over $50. Merger and acquisition market should heat up nicely with the cash hoardings of major corps with growing on their mind. LAZ is ready to help.

During the last recession (2001), their bankruptcy advising branch grew 6-fold. This is a much greater recession than that one, so I expect their revenue from advising to increase substantially. They have already been hired by many big companies that have declared or are thinking about declaring bankruptcy this year (including charter, tribune, blockbuster) so they obviously have a huge pipeline of revenue.

In my opinion one of the very very few banks that are well positioned right now. Best of breed in a depressed sector spells great returns in the future

got lazy and hit outperform prob a little early. financials will continue to take a hti and really shouldnt be bought yet. although lazard has taken an unfair hit on what was a "weak" second quarter (although it had already indicated that it would be as its $ is back heavy for this year) looking forward to next year earnings the company is undervalued, and by the time financials are done taking there hit, which again i dont actually think is yet, should be well positioned for a great climb

Small investing firm that has overexeeded the earning estimates in past five or six quaters. So I see the path continue. Money is moving in financial markets because of Asia emerge.

Those firms in the financial services industry dedicated to investment banking and asset management have done quite well over the last two years, where an incredible number of deals have been done, and institutional investors have made phenomenal returns. Lazard, Ltd. has the Wall Street pedigree to earn more than its share of deals should recent activity continue into what most experts believe will be another record year for investment banks. Lazard's accolades from 2005 include:
In 2005, Lazard advised on five of the nine
