Excerpt from post on Google Finance Discussions Ameritrade Holdings on 2/9/2009: "Does anyone wonder why AMTD's stock price hasn't surged, w/ all the great opportunities they have in thinkorswim & TD-Bank's new investment? B/c certain investors KNOW ABOUT FUTURE LACK OF CASH FLOW DUE TO FUTURE LITIGATION, THAT HASN'T BEEN DISCOUNTED INTO THE STOCK PRICE - BECAUSE CLIENTS CAN'T SUE THE COMPANY W/O VIOLATING AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE UNTIL PRIMARY FUND DISTRIBUTIONS HAVE BEEN PAID BACK IN FULL. B/C the company directed The Primary Fund & >97% of all Reserve Yield Plus investors to The Reserve. Further, they directed investors to Reserve Funds, W/O DELIVERING PROSPECTUS'-to a PRIVATE EQUITY FUND COMPANY. Look into Reg-D SEC filings for Reserve Management Co, Reserve Management Co., Inc., RESRV Partners, & finally Reserve Funds (the cover up)- specifically paper filing 40-6CA (can email upon request). You will see that the Reserve money market funds were central funds to which, the Reserve Private Equity Series, Small Cap Growth, & about 6 other PE funds, could take stakes in & WHIP STAKES OUT of, such as The Primary Fund I (institutional investors tipped off??- The Reserve was the Institutional Investor?? I should know about this as I discovered the AMTD/Reserve relationship in 2007. I had a personal trading account w/ Ameritrade in late 2007, while my family had the rest of our cash & investments w/ Ameritrade (after they hassled my mother for > 1year to move assets from Compass Bank, the bank my Grandfather co-founded & one to which my Mother & my family have great sentimental attachment - promising her a large bonus credit to her account & a high yielding money fund). As my Mother is the trustee of my & my little brother's trusts, she felt as though the bonus credit & Primary Fund's yield were in our family's best interest & would be in my Grandfather's interest. Ameritrade knew that we sold Compass Shares prior to the BBVA acquisition& was on the prowl to GATHER ASSETS IN ANY WAY THEY COULD. However, I became leery of The Reserve/AMTD relationship from 10/07 to 1/08.. that is until TD-AMERITRADE TERMINATED MY PERSONAL TRADING ACCOUNT & FORCED ME TO DISCONTINUE COMMUNICATIONS w/ them regarding The Reserve, Ameritrade, & the wealth God entrusted to my family,BECAUSE I ASKED TOO MANY QUESTIONS. You see, I was concerned the high yielding Reserve Fund as the current financial crisis began to submerge. I wanted to know current holdings. Bruce Bent was quoted in a WSJ article many years ago saying, "you can always gauge a money fund's strength & reliability by their level of customer service.. If you are nervous, just ask for the current holdings." I did just that. Over & over. AMTD would only send us reports from greater than 6 months prior, an outdated prospectus, or asset allocation model (3 months of demands; didn't have as much knowledge in structured finance at the time but now know there was a much more timely N-Q report). I have documented conversations with my former employer), to which I had to retrieve holdings indirectly from an executive at Bloomberg who was a former colleague of my boss (weren't on traditional terminal). When I found that all the Primary Fund holdings were comm. paper invested in bank & financing company's, I DEMANDED ANSWERS. I WANTED TO KNOW THE MOST TIMELY HOLDINGS & WHAT ASSETS WERE BACKING THE CP. However, they didn't like my questions, & I was subsequently sent a letter stating my account had been terminated & I was to discontinue communications. I guess they didn't bargain on ME BEING THE ONLY 23 YEAR OLD worried about the INDIRECT EXPOSURE TO SOUR ASSETS IN THE FORM OF OVERLOADEDPORTFOLIOS IN COMMERCIAL PAPER(as AMTD quoted they had "no DIRECT EXPOSURE," on their website). Take a look at executives who left AMTD right at the time my questions were raised. Look at there roles w/in the company & you will see a picture being painted.
