EU Willing to Sacrifice Hedge Fund Jobs to Clean Up Industry ...
The EU seems unintimidated by various threats the hedge fund and private equity fund industry have tried to make to forestall efforts to restrict the activities of those firms. The EU proposed both limiting the ability of EU nationals to invest in non-EU funds, and the ability of non-EU players to operate within the EU. The idea that any government dare tell the moneybags what to do is a bit of a stunner to the industry, which has gotten used to having its way in the US and UK. But despite the loud noises from the industry, there has been no change in the stance of the Europeans. Indeed, it gets even better. An EU ... market research, surveys and trends

March 25 (Bloomberg) -- Compensation for U.S. hedge-fund employees may drop as much as 25 percent this year as the firms try to recoup last year’s investment losses. The decline will cut hedge-fund paychecks to about half the record levels of 2007, according to estimates by Alan Johnson , founder of Johnson Associates Inc. , a New York-based compensation-consulting firm whose clients include financial- services companies. About 70 percent of the industry’s 6,800 so-called single- manager funds lost money in 2008 with the average fund dropping 19 percent, according to data compiled by Chicago-based Hedge Fund Research Inc .

Apple customers have faith after 'Antennagate'
When Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said July 16 that he would give $30 plastic cases to iPhone 4 owners, Wall Street breathed a sigh of relief. There would be no recall of the more than 3 million reception-challenged devices that had been sold since the iPhone 4 was introduced June 24. Then came Apple's second-quarter results announced Tuesday, when the company reported profit of $3.25 billion on $15.7 billion in sales. Analysts were expecting $2.9 billion in earnings on revenue of $14.7 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Judging from the two- to three-week waiting lists to buy an iPhone 4, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Conn. strikes back
As The Post noted Thursday, Rell’s rolling out the red carpet for hedge-fund bigwigs, offering to meet them over dinner at a fancy Darien steakhouse.

Jodi Rell “I am personally inviting you and a few of your colleagues to meet with me,” Rell wrote in a letter to the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable’s president. ”We have much to discuss.” Gov. Paterson first proposed the lame-brained scheme for last ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
