Two interesting articles

First, Forbes ranks the analysts and which we should actually "listen to"

http://www.forbes.com/2005/04/29/05b...lystsland.html

Second, I'm getting a job on Wall Street!!!

http://www.gothamgazette.com/article/20050128/5/1306

If its too much for you to read, the take away:

Officially, the average bonus on Wall Street is $100,000.

I definitely made a wrong career choice, somewhere

Well I don't know if they are getting better, but judging by the winners I'd say they are getting "hotter".-* 8)---and apparently richer.* :

This would mean that the median bonus on Wall Street would be approximately a half a million dollars. But even here, one would expect a great deal of inequality. Some will make multi-million dollar bonuses; others will have to settle for a few hundred thousands. So these 23,000 very privileged New York workers really did find their fortune on Wall Street.
This sounds about right.
