In context to the High Frequency Trading shenanigans that have been in the news lately (read THIS story from yesterday’s WSJ as well as read our perspective on not enabling HFT) a question to investors about trust seemed appropriate and timely.
Specially, are the issuers being ‘lumped in” with the Wall Street investment process? Is investor relations able to communicate “confidence” in light of the ongoing stories of bad decisions coming from Wall Street? One bad apple, et al.
Fortunately, investors do differentiate between the equities and “Wall Street.” Run the math – investors trust the companies almost 5X (44% v 8%) more. High fives and fist bumps for IR!

Have a great day.
