Another 3.8 million shares repurchased from Sep 1 through October 8th. 1.5% of shares out. A 30% reduction in less than three years. This has to work at some point.

Yes, at the prices they are buying...tangible book or less.  But it doesn't work when you buy them back like Eddie Lampert did with Sears!   ;D  Cheers!

The thing I love about Jefferies is that while TBVPS compounds slowly away over time, the market reliably panics and oversells the stock every time the macro sh1t hits the fan. It’s my go-to name for adding “risk” in a sell-off.

Good results but the gap between SHO and FDSHO bothers me. Lots of that buyback is being given away in options, no?

Berkadia acquired Moran & Company's Apartment Brokerage for institutional clients -
https://www.berkadia.com/aboutus/newsroom/berkadia-acquires-moran-companys-apartment-brokerage-practice-to-further-expand-its-institutional-investment-sales-capabilities/

At the bottom of the press release there is a little summary of Berkadia's past two years of acquisition activity.

Doubt it's material to either firm but Berkadia is more important to JEF than BRK so I put it here.

Anyone  have any current insight on this Jeffries / Leucadia Union Station Washington D C air rights asset?
 
I emailed Jeffries investor relations some time ago asking about the status of these  air rights ,but have yet to receive any response.

Jeffries (Leucadia)..Union Station air rights ...the commentary below was from ~ July, 2012

.........
"...If they paid $10 MM for the right, and are Leucadia's JV partner, I guess LUK doesn't own the rights in their entirety?


I read the quote to mean that "they" - meaning the joint venture in total - paid that much for the rights, although you raise a good question. Disclosure seems minimal ... LUK has minority interests on the balance sheet."

"If this report is accurate, Leucadia's air rights may be getting more valuable. I don't know the website but it was linked to by American Association of Railroads so it's probably legitimate ... "
