technicals as of 6/5 look like it might be a buy, crossed over 50 day, stochastic looks like its not overbought,macd is trending up. but technicals end there, fundamentaly, analysts say its a moderate sell, sales qtr vs qtr are 3 times lower than industry, income 2x lower than industry, and they are in a lawsuit accused of misleading buyers of a company they own, until the suit is settled, and the industry standards come up i'd hold off

This company was individually screened to verify that during the boom years ('04-'08), their Balance Sheet expansion appeared excessive. The company operates within the FIRE (Financial Insurance Real Estate) sector of the economy which has been hot the past few decades, yet will run out of steam this coming decade. At some point or another, something's gotta give with this company. Income will start collapsing due to debt levels, and/or dividends will be slashed or removed, and/or significant losses will be realized. The chances of this being a growth company or having significant growth is heavily muted due to its dividend paying obligations at the current levels of today.
This company was personally found after using a screener.

initial google screen:
Market cap over 400M
Dividend yield over 1%
1 Year price change better than -35%
price to book 0.9 or higher
total debt/equity (recent qtr) greater than 50%
13 week price change greater than 17%

After individually screening for companies appearing overvalued due to Balance sheet expansion, it yielded the following stocks to short:
EVR NTRS PRSP JEF LAZ FIS RJF

For the heavy shorting within the FIRE sector as part of the above picks, I will offset them with the following longs relating to FIRE companies:
LONG on BX CVBF UTR

This will be the primary focus of this profile, to seek & obtain alpha from long/short dividend opportunities across various industries.

Tom James makes sure to keep this company as conservative as the markets will allow. He has veered from anything too complex to make financial sense and RJF remains in a great position to overcome the recent ruts of the financials sector. Every investment the company makes is geared toward the "big picture" and the long-term. That's what's going to keep them sound, get through this mess, and prosper in the years to come.

Tom James and the folks at Raymond James have been doing it right for a long time. They stayed out of all of the derivatives and sub prime fiascos that nailed most of the major Wall St players and actually beat profit projections last quarter. They won't turn over a gigantic profit during the good times but you won't see them take huge losses during the bad times either. They just keep growing the business a little at a time. I expect them to stay near their profit projections for the rest of the year which puts them way ahead of the major houses

My brokerage services through Fulton Financial Advisors are about to change to Raymond James. I hope they are all they tout themselves to be.

Is currently a bargain buy and will continue to be a strong regional - as long as that bank does okay.

Raymond James looks like they'll be able to survive the credit crunch without so much as a yawn. RJF has plenty of cash and a very steady uptrend that looks like it will once again breakout to new highs. I've thought for months now that Raymond James looks like the perfect merger/takeover target of this sector and I'll stick by that opinion. This is definitely a stock worth sitting on a few years or until they merge with someone else in the sector.

As long as Tom James is in charge, this stock will be a winner.

One of those rare no BS wall street firms. immediately after the rate hike of the BOJ, he told to go long yen and warned about the unwinding of the carry trade. He likes stuff stocks (commodities/ hard assets), oils and Precious Metals. I would recommend everybody to read his weekly commentaries:

More inflows into the market lately will be reflected in RJF earnings. Although Mr James claims he is not interested in selling, this seems to be the next logical buyout opportunity. Highly speculative but possible. Even without a buyout, this is a good company, and will be a good stock.
