Bill Clark gives the Greenwich Time 15 Days

Fifteen More Days...

...and then, one hopes, we can finally bid farewell to the Local Rag, aka Yellowwich Time.

Today the Hearst Corporation, owner of our unspeakably inept, incompetent, incorrect, badly-written, slanted, and scurrilous Local Rag, announced the demise of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It will move to an Internet-only presence. Already the parakeet cages and kitty-litter boxes all over Greenwich are wondering what their pets' owners will use as a substitute to line them, should this happen here. And your scribe has no answer for them.

One also wonders if Hearst will close the rag down totally, as in Seattle, and move it to an Internet-only format as well, or whether they will put out a local Greenwich edition of the Connecticut Post. Or perhaps some combination of the two?

One straw in the wind is that after some months of enforced rustication, the talented and opinionated Sarah Darer Littman is once more appearing in the LR. During her unpaid "vacation" she kept up a blogging presence on the Internet. Could be that Hearst needs some computer-savvy people like her to help with the transition from killing trees to pushing electrons around in cyperspace.
One wishes that they would fire the unspeakable Bruce Hunter again, and make her the editor; but she's too busy with her successful writing career to want to make such a downward move. Our loss, alas.

And so, dear reader, be sure to save your Yellowwich Time from March 31, 2009. You may be able to put it up on eBay and get back half of the cover price. Or, of course, you can use it one last time in your birdcages and cat boxes. The choice is yours.

Bill Clark Timeline For The Yellowich Time Might Be More Accurate

03/16/09 PRESS RELEASE: A New Way to Look at Equities- From Peter Lundstedt, CIO, Equity Portfolio Strategist, Greenwich Asset Management Group, LLC


A New Way to Look at Equities

Seven measurements

From: Peter Lundstedt, CIO, Equity Portfolio Strategist, Greenwich Asset Management Group, LLC

I use a new way of looking at stocks to invest equity portfolio's and it's done inside a Separately Managed Institutional Account held with an independent custodian, such as Schwab Institutional, with real time client monitoring in what I call a Client Supervised Investment Account.

My goal is to provide a superior equity portfolio construction methodology. Greenwich Asset Management Group, LLC does not custody assets and works with limited trading authority only. Send for more information to: gamgllc@earthlink.net or visit www.gamgllc.com

1. Seven measurements - A new way to look at stocks

2. What I can do for you

3. How Linear Regression might help your portfolio

4. More Information


1. Seven measurements - A new way to look at stocks

I use seven measurements when searching for stocks to add to a portfolio. Very few stocks have all seven measurements, at the same time. These measurements reflect a stocks' strength on a fundamental level first and then a technical level. These are companies which rank in the top 15% on all seven levels as measured by leading financial information providers and represent the financial health and overall demand by stock buyers. We then give each stock a score; (a higher score equals higher 'confidence' in the stocks held in the portfolio).

Our way of making money is to buy good stocks with a high score and, depending on the market, hold them for 3 to 5 years, and sell the ones that don't follow their long term trend line. Add 20 years of experience and you have a workable system which we think can benefit almost any portfolio. Call us to see more information if you think this philosophy would fit with your style of investing: USA (203) 622-1305.



2. What I can do for you

I can show you how each stock you hold really ranks; which stocks to keep and which stocks not to hold. I can show you how the top half of your portfolio has performed compared to the bottom half. I can show you how your top 10 stocks performed and then the top 15 and the top 20. I feel I can position Institutional equity portfolios in a better way by holding only the highest ranked issues in a broadly diversified portfolio while at the same time being client specific. So, if you need an energy portfolio, I can create an evenly weighted portfolio of 30 - 50 of the highest ranked energy stocks. If you have an asset allocation model, I can create an evenly weighted portfolio of the highest ranked stocks in each sector chosen. If you need to 'reconstruct' a health care portfolio, I can create an evenly weighted portfolio of 30 - 50 of the highest ranked health care stocks, and so on. Here is how I do it:

I use seven measurements when searching for stocks to add to or to 'reconstruct' a portfolio. These measurements reflect a stocks' strength on a fundamental level first and then a technical level. These are companies which rank in the top 15% on all seven levels as measured by leading financial information providers and represent the financial health and overall demand 'by stock buyers'. I then give each stock a score; (a higher score = higher confidence). Currently, a perfect score would be a 598. I found that the higher the score, the fewer the number of stocks were available. I like to limit the portfolio to stocks with a minimum score of 470 to 490 which I feel gives you a higher probability of success. You could imagine ranking all 500 stocks in the S&P 500 and creating an evenly weighted portfolio with just the top 50 or top 100 stocks with the highest rank.

For example, with a $100 million dollar separately managed account held at Schwab Institutional, I would most likely divide it into 30 - 50 evenly weighted segments and then fill each compartment with higher score, stock selections. I learned this style of portfolio management from the former manager of the now $140 billion NY State Common retirement fund, who traded actual client accounts thru me for five years using this technique. While at the State, he had 12 money managers under him. He saw how each one did over time, which systems worked and which to avoid. He settled upon a sector rotation model that averaged 25% per year. I've added the seven measurements above to the formula, among other important criteria, to create a uniquely diversified Institutional quality evenly weighted equity investment process. I operate under the theoretical assumption that, it doesn't matter what you own; what really matters is what other people are buying and how diversified you want to be.

Getting Results. Differently

What if one could 'measure' demand in a way that resulted in a higher probability of a positive future outcome? If information that was 'already public' was compiled in such a way that reflects which stocks will potentially attract more buyers than sellers. This is what I do. I believe the most successful investment firms have been those that have been separated physically and psychologically from brokerages, banks or insurance companies. That is, the best performance and also the most dynamic business strategies have generally come from independent investment management firms.

Our Investment Process

I use seven measurements, to start, when searching for stocks to add to a portfolio. Very few stocks have all seven measurements at the same time. These measurements reflect a stocks' strength on a fundamental level first and then a technical level. These are companies which rank in the top 15% on all seven levels as measured by leading financial information providers and represent the financial health and overall demand by stock buyers. I then give each stock a score; (a higher score equals higher confidence in your stock portfolio).

My way of investing private capital is to buy good stocks with a high score and hold them for 3 to 5 years, and sell the ones that don't follow their long term trend line. Add 20 years of experience and you have a workable system which I think can benefit almost any portfolio.

Why Invest With Us ?

I offer independent, unbiased, transparent, and investment banking-free advice.

I am paid a management fee, not commissions. Our goal is in line with client goals, which is a higher account value, not higher commissions or more trades.

I invest discretionary capital for clients in the equity markets through Separately Managed Accounts typically held at Schwab Institutional or Fidelity, which have very low commissions and fees.

What I Look For

My stock screening process is based in part on a proprietary system as well as statistical information produced by leading financial information provider's stock screening process. I look for:

- Fundamental Data Rating
- Earnings Per Share (EPS) Rating
- Sales + Profit Margins + ROE Rating
- Return on Equity (ROE)
- Moving Averages and more !

What I Do

I Advise and Manage "Growth Stock" Separately Managed Investment Accounts:

For client accounts held at Schwab Institutional, I buy stocks of companies that have the fundamental and technical characteristics I "screen" for growth accounts and that fit with each client's risk tolerance, financial situation and investment goals.

Fundamentally, I screen for companies that have a high score as reported by leading financial information providers which include fundamental ranking, earnings per share ranking and SMR (sales, profit, margins, and return on equity) ranking, as well as, return on equity, greater than 100 employees, and positive earnings expectations, and more.

Technically, I screen for stocks whose prices are usually above several moving averages.

I was a Top Ten Performer in the Second Quarter 2008 Top Guns Ranking. Our Global Equity Universe Fund has exhibited superior performance compared to my peers in the PSN Investment Manager Database.

PLEASE REMEMBER:
Past results are not indicative of future returns. There is risk of loss as well as opportunity for gain when investing in separately managed stock accounts.

03/16/09 The Ax Once Again Falls At The Greenwich Time

It Used To Be In The Hard Nose Media World You Would Get The Ax If You Did Not Produce Immediate And Sustained Results, But Failed Grenwich Time Editor Bruce Hunter Knows How To Survive By Playing Office Politics At Hearst Newspapers


As part of a move to reduce costs by 20 percent, Hearst Corp. said Monday 48 employees will accept buyouts at its group of Connecticut newspapers.

Employees of the Connecticut Post, News-Times of Danbury, The Advocate of Stamford, Greenwich Time and the Brooks Community Newspapers covering several Fairfield County communities were told in a letter from Senior Vice President and Hearst Newspaper Group Publisher Mark E. Aldam the buyouts and additional reductions are necessitated by a significant deterioration in business conditions and the strain of a deepening recession.

"Most of the individuals accepted into the voluntary buyout plan will be leaving the company within two to four weeks," Aldam wrote. "However, a few exceptions are anticipated to ensure a smooth transition."

It is unclear how many jobs will be shed by Hearst because Aldam said Monday the cost savings will be created through more than just employment reductions. He said other savings could be found in newsprint and elsewhere.

Don't worry. Failed Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Will Remain To Suck The Life Out Of The Green Kitty Liter Liner That Pulled Him Out Of Unemployment

Hearst Newspapers Seem To Think That That Keeping A Failed Editor And A Lazy Reporter Like Meridith Blake Around Is The Key To Success In Greenwich

It Is Clear That The Failed Editor And The Lazy Reporter Know How To Play The Game Of Newspaper Politics In Greenwich ..... Keep Your Head Down And Don't Rock The Boat.


.....Despite concerns about the future of the business, Aldam said in his letter, the Connecticut newspaper group is moving forward to build new online and print products. He specifically cited recent cooperation between the dailies to create combined business, entertainment and classified jobs sections.

He said this doesn't mean there will be one newspaper because it is important to preserve the local reporting in its four dailies and six weeklies.

It Also Doesn't Mean That There Wont Be One Newspaper If Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz's The '100 Days of Change' Initiative Continues To Fails In Fairfield County

PLEASE SEE:


......Bruce Hunter And Lazy Merideth Blake Need To Learn That There Are At Least Three Sides To Every Story And They Need To Include All Of The Vioces Of Greenwich Society.

In This Case There Is At Least Four Sides, The Meyhem With The Police, Gang Activity In The Area, The Greenwich Police Departments Community Relations And The Minority Police Officer's Lawsuit That Alleges That Discrimination Is Pervasive In The Greenwich Police Department.

Lazy Greenwich Time Reporter Meridith Blake Ignored Everything Except The Meyhem With The Police Department And Then Only Used One Sourse .....

Sgt. James Bonney The Head Of The Greenwich Police Union

Greenwich Roundup Is Not Saying That Sgt. Bonney Is Not A Good And Dedicated Policeman. No Officer Bonney Lives In And Cares About Greenwich.

In Fact, Greenwich Roundup, Thinks Bonney
Is One Of The Best Police Officers In Greenwich.

Moreover, Bonney Has Proved Himself A Very Able Union Leader Who Taught Former First Selectman Jim Lash And The Previous Police Cheif A Thing Or Two

But This Is Not About How Good An Officer Or Union Leader Jim Bonney Is Or Is Not.

It Is About Hearst Newspaper Reporter Lazy Merideth Blake's Continual Failure To Be Impartial And To Seek Out And Listen To All Members Of Greenwich Society When She Reports In The Town.

This Is Why Greenwich Blogger Bill Clarke
Calls The Paper The Yellowich Time.

It Is Time For Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter, To Start Following Hearst Media Journalistic Standards And To Report All The Facts.

Don't Be Like Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Joe "The Censor" Pisani And Pick And Chose Sides.
Just Tell It Like It Is And Let The Chips Fall Where They May.

At The Very Least Bruce Hunter Should Of Had Lazy Merideth Blacke Mention That Greenwich High School Security Officer Carlos Franco, Former Greenwich Police Department Officer Terral Hardy And Greenwich Police Officers John Rodriguez, Scott Johnson, Carlos, John Woodward, Robert Brown, and Vincent O'Banner Contention That There Was A Pattern Of Racial Discrimination Against Minority Members Of The Greenwich Public.

Even If Lazy Meridith Blake Doesn't Have Any Contacts With The Members Of Greenwich Society That Have To Live On Davis Avenue And In Wilbur Peck Court, She Still Could File A Freedom Of Information Request With Greenwich Housing Authority Honcho Terry Mardula For The Video Of The Incident.

The Multiple Wilbur Peck Survelance Cameras Don't Lie

They Just Report The Facts And Let The Chips Fall Where They May.

What A Better Way For The New Greenwich Time Publisher Michelle McAbee To Demonstrate The Power Of Hearst Newspaper's New Internet And Video Inititive By Putting The Housing Authority Riot Video On The Front Page Of The Greenwich Time Home Page.

Video Of A Japaness Coral Group Is Sooooooooo Cute.

That Greenwich Time Video Of Those Sweet Little Oriental Angelic Singers Is Just Sooooooooo Charming And Delightful.

But This Type Of Greenwich Time Video Is Not Hard News .....

It's Just Cute Fluff

On February 2nd, Hearst Newspaper President President Steven Swartz promised Greenwich Time Readers A Management Shake-Up And The '100 Days of Change' Initiative Aimed At Challenging Traditional Thinking At The Green Kitty Litter Liner In Order To Retool The Local Daily Publishing Disaster.

On February 2nd, Swartz Boldly Issued A Statement that said, "100 Days of Change' is something that all of our newspapers are invested in. We will not stand idle; we have been working for some time on reinventing our businesses while demonstrating to advertisers and readers the exceptional value that newspapers deliver."

Ten Months Ago Ex-Greenwich Time Managing Editor Jim Zebora Refused To Go After The Survelance Video When The Greenwich Police Department Fired A weapon three Times Inside Greenwich High School.

Isn't it curious that Greenwich High School operates has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on closed circuit television cameras that cover virtually every nook and cranny of the school, both inside and out, and employs the biggest security staff of any school in the state of Connecticut, and also stations an armed police officer there full-time who has made literally scores of arrests the past three years, yet when a 140 pound student gets 50,000 volts three different times the Greenwich Time is too afraid to video which is a public document.

Now Failed Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Refuses To Go After The Wilbur Peck Court Survelance Video Of The Madness And Meyhem That Occurred Between 12 Greenwich Police Officers And 50 Civilians.

Failed Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Only Published An Article That Has Lazy Reporter Meridith Blake Only Interviewing The Greenwich Police Depatment's Union President.
So Far It Looks Like Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz Is Delivering "100 Days Of Bull Crap" To Greenwich Time Readers.

Bruce Hunter"s Lack Of Journaistic Judgement Is A Liability To Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz's Plans To Revitalize The Greenwich Time

Mr. Swartz Is Going To Fail Miseralby If He Continues To Allow Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter To Make Daily Decissions That Are Damaging The Credibility Of The Newspaper.

Sgt. James Bonney, who was supervising the scene, said Greenwich police could have arrested more people if they had had more manpower.Cardenas-Rey allegedly kicked out the glass window of a police cruiser after being placed in the back of the car, injuring an officer, police said.
The 17-year-old juvenile also attempted to strike another officer in the head with a large rock, police said. He was subdued with a Taser and arrested, police said. He was treated at Greenwich Hospital.
Three officers were injured in the incident, sustaining contusions and abrasions, police said. None was hospitalized, police said.One of the three injured officers remained off-duty because of cuts on his face and hands from glass shards from the broken window, police spokesman Daniel Allen said.

Terry Mardula, deputy director of the Greenwich Housing Authority, said he was called to the property early Sunday to speak with police.
Mardula said the men who live at the housing facility involved in Saturday's incident may be subject to eviction for violating their lease agreement.
"Without a doubt, these three individuals have violated their lease," said Mardula, noting that Wells, a nonresident, will be banned from the property.
Mardula said a letter to the family of the juvenile will be sent as well, warning them about the ramifications of his actions.......

STAMFORD -- A courthouse melee broke out Monday during an arraignment for one of the five people arrested during a weekend gathering that turned violent at the Wilbur Peck public housing complex, officials said.

According to State Police, two men disrupted a hearing by screaming and yelling at judicial marshals in state Superior Court in Stamford. The two allegedly resisted arrest after the verbal altercation and were pepper-sprayed before being taken into custody, police said.

Christopher Flores, 21, 70 Wilbur Peck Court, and Miles Sy, 20, of 318 Delavan Ave., were charged with interfering with an officer and breach of peace for the courthouse episode, police said. Sy was additionally charged with assault on a peace officer capable of causing harm, police said.

State Police responded to the court house, at 123 Hoyt St., at 1:07 p.m. after receiving word of a disturbance.....
SOMETHING IS JUST NOT KOSHER ABOUT HOW
FAILED GREENWICH TIME MANAGING EDITOR
BRUCE HUNTER HAS CHOSEN TO COVER THIS
NEWS STORY IN THE LOCAL HEARST NEWSPAPER
Stamford-based attorney Mark Sherman was in court Monday representing two of the men arrested for the Wilbur Peck incident, Daniel Flores, also of 70 Wilbur Peck Court, and Stephen Wells, 18, of 8 Booth Place. Sherman said he was arguing for the judge to reduce Wells' bond when the disturbance started.

Christopher and Daniel Flores are related, Sherman said.....
......A judge reduced Flores bond to $50,000, but refused to reduce Wells bond, officials said, at which point the shouting started.

The two men were charged with inciting a riot, breach of peace, interfering with a police officer and inciting injury to persons or property, police said. They are both being held by the state Department of Corrections......
......Jorge Cardenas-Rey, a 21-year-old man also arrested Saturday, is accused of attempting to grab a police officer's baton and breaking a police cruiser's window. He was charged with numerous offenses including assault on a peace officer and assigned a public defender......
YOU WOULD THINK THAT ROOKIE GREENWICH TIME REPORTER DEBRA FRIEDMAN WOULD OF HAD MORE INFORMATION ON JORGE CARDENAS-REY'S APPEANCE ON A $250,000 BOND
IT WAS CARDENAS-REY'S ARREST SPARKED THE RIOT AND HE IS FACING THE MOST SERIOUS CHARGES IN THE INCIDENT.
ALSO AS GREENWICH ROUNDUP EXCLUSIVELY REPORTED .....
Police Officers Tell Greenwich Roundup That
Jorge Cardenas-Rey Holds Some Type Of Leadership Position
In The Gang That Greenwich Police Chief
David Ridberg Says Doesn't Exist.

Further, Greenwich Police Officers Are Angry That It Was Not Released That Jorge Cardenas- was arrested on Valentines day morning and charged for a very similar incident that did not escalate in to an out of control situation.

In The Valentines Day incident Jorge Cardenas-Rey
was arrested for interfering with a police officer
and disorderly conduct.

Greenwich Police Officers say after that the Valentine's Day arrest, and many after other previous incidents, they have repeatedly complained that Gang activity is getting out of hand in the Davis Avenue Area.

But, Greenwich Police Chief David Ridberg just ignores their complaints

Flores, Wells, Cardenace - Rey And The Juvinile
What Ever Happened To The Other Joseph Antanascio Carey Who Lives At 97 Wibur Peck And Was Released On A $100,000 Bond?
What Happened To His Arrigment?
And How Can A 19 Year Old Wilbur Peck Resident Come Up With $100,000?
How does someone living in a subsidized housing complex come up with enough money to post $100,000 bail bond or $10,000 In Cash With In A Matter Of Hours?
Is There Some Kind Of Unreported Outside Income?
Greenwich Roundup Is Sure That This Huge $100,00 Bail Being Met By A Supposedly Low Income Family Could In No Way What So Ever Be From Any Neferious Activity.
Greenwich Roundup Is 100% Sure That No Criminal Activity Or Drugs Were Behind This Lighting Fast $100,000 Bail Bond, Because Greenwich Police Chief David Ridberg's Repeated Assertion That There Is Not A Drug Or Gang Problem Just Blocks From Greenwich Avenue.
Limited Income Families Living In Subsidisized Housing Rapidly Come Up With Huge Bails All The Time. There Is Nothing What-So-Ever Wrong With That. It Happens All The Time.
Maybe Joseph Antanascio Carey's Church Had Held An Emergency Service And Collected Enough For The $100,000 Bail With In Hours
Maybe The 19 Year Old carey Has A Very Rich Reletive?
Or Maybe His Boss Instantly Loaned Him The Money, Because He Is Such A Hard Working Employee?
There Could Be A Lot Of Ways That Someone Living In Subsidised Housing Could Legitamately Make A $100,000 Bail With In Hours
