Coachella Fashion Trends: The Mank Is Everywhere



Go HERE, HERE, and HERE for more photos from Coachella weekend and tag yourself and your friends!

Ah, Coachella. The things you make us relatively sane individuals do. Especially when it comes to desert fashion. In case you have never seen a single photograph from the weekend festival, Coachella compels males to don a certain article of clothing they otherwise (and by the grace of God) wouldn’t dare wear in public.  We’re talking about manks, male/man tank tops. For some reason manks are not only a completely socially acceptable garment for the duration of the weekend but also the preferred choice. Read the full story

Apple: BTIG Raises Target To $450 On iPad Growth


BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk today raised his price target on shares of Apple (AAPL) to $450 from $375, concluding that the iPad will probably generate $24 billion in revenue this calendar year, which is $4 billion more than he’d originally expected, and which, as he puts it, “would represent more than 20% of revenue for a product that is less than two years old.”

Piecyk writes that the introduction of the iPhone 4 at Verizon Communications (VZ) in February had “tempered” his expectations. “the CDMA iPhone 4 initially generated a disappointing response which not only surprised us but apparently also surprised Apple.”

But, “The iPad 2 appears to be putting our doubts to rest,” he goes on, citing the big lines at Apple stores and the stock-outs for the iPad over the weekend.

Piecyk is modeling 40 million iPads will be sold this year, up from a 33 million prior estimate. He notes his Apple revenue estimate for this fiscal year ending in September has gone to $102 billion, up from $86 billion he estimated 5 months ago.

Apple shares today are down $3.53, or 1%, at $341.91.

Twenty Five Guys Who Will “Destroy Your Career On Wall Street”


According to John Carney, they’re to be avoided and included:

* “The guy who always wants you to be his alibi when he cheats on his wife. (“Hey man, is it cool if I tell Kathy that we’re going fly fishing in Canada this weekend?”). No, dude: It’s not cool.”

* “The guy who offers his clients ‘a very special opportunity’ to invest in anything. He has a problem with cocaine.”

* “The guy who throws his phone across the trading floor whenever his positions go south. He’s an angry dude, and the more time you spend with him the more reasons he’ll find to dislike you.

* “Avoid anyone who tells you that you should relax and have a couple of drinks—at 9:15 on a Tuesday morning. You’re not cool enough to hang out with this guy.”

Agree/disagree? In your experience, have you found the guy who throws stuff at people to be someone you actually want to hitch your wagon to?
