New Stock Coverage: Go the Extra Miley With CyrusOne


Stocks suffered serious misfortune by the end of a week that began with a man named Goodluck ringing the closing bell . (Or opening bell , according to Wall Street 's erroneous newspaper of record, whose miserable time of it was compounded when its archrival the New York Times ( NYT ) surged some 7.29%.)

Goldman Sachs ( GS ), in its first week as a Dow (INDEXDJX:.DJI) component, propped up that entire index in falling 5.8%. This as Dominique Strauss-Kahn reduced the reputation of investment bankers even further in the public's estimation, assuming that was possible.

Robin Williams returned to our screens as a Madison Avenue executive in The Crazy Ones , which you'd have to be in order to make the recent performance of hedge funds, now allowed to advertise , look good. Speaking of hedgies, Bill Ackman and his new favorite frenemy Dan Loeb are apparently the only people in America still writing letters, which explains the sorry state of the Post Office .
