Regardless of the outcome, this is bad PR.

the only potentially bad thing is the Aegerion CEO wife swap, right? that is the only thing related to Jefferies' actual business.

Is it really fundamental changing (or surprising) news that a banker does too much blow and has terrible family life?

No, but it indicates the culture that might be in place.

Is a 'wife swap' similar to a 'credit default swap'?

Handler has definitely pissed off some competitors over the years by stealing their bankers I think.  The continued small little anti-JEF stories in the news is clearly a PR campaign of some kind.

Most of this stuff *if* it were true, wouldn't even be newsworthy, but somehow a bank most folks have never heard of gets media stores covering it's bankers???  Yeah, call me skeptical.

Chance to buy cheaper.
