Wall Street


Last quote about Wall Street

Serious wrongdoing could go unpunished. If President Trump wanted to make sure that the SEC would have a hard time in going after his Wall Street friends, it seems to me you would be the perfect SEC chair.

All quotes about Wall Street

Scott Clemons - Brown Brothers Harriman

If there's room for dissatisfaction on Wall Street about the speech it's that both corporate and individual tax reform really got little more than a passing glance and no more details. I didn't hear a whole lot that was new. He was certainly more presidential but that's a pretty low bar.

Nancy Pelosi

The President's speech was utterly disconnected from the cruel reality of his conduct. The President speaks like a populist, but he is selling working people down the river to Wall Street. He claims that he's making America safer, but he has jeopardized the security of our country and weakened our fight against terror with his Administration's dangerous, incompetent, and unconstitutional actions.

Nancy Pelosi

Trump "speaks like a populist, but he is selling working people down the river to Wall Street.

Elizabeth Warren

Mr. Ross has extensive ties to Russia. He plans to keep making money from his major oil shipping companies while working as Commerce Secretary. He's made billions off the backs of struggling home owners. He is practically a cartoon stereotype of a Wall Street fat cat.

Chuck Schumer

It is clear from this budget blueprint that President Trump fully intends to break his promises to working families by taking a meat ax to programs that benefit the middle class. A cut this steep almost certainly means cuts to agencies that protect consumers from Wall Street excess and protect clean air and water.

Bernie Sanders

We need to open up the party to working people, to young people and make it crystal clear that the Democratic Party is going to take on Wall Street, it's going to take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, it's going to take on corporate America that is shutting down plants in this country and moving our jobs abroad.

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

I really think that the market is much much less dependent upon Trump policies than people have made it out to be. I really think this is more about the synchronization of global economic growth, the broadest evidence of recovery hitting more corners of the globe than ever before. I think the rest of it becomes more problematic for Wall Street. I think, for example, a massive infrastructure spending program could be looked at as inflationary at a full[y] employed economy and getting into healthcare seems like it could be gridlock.

Dick Bove

If you think of the amount of funds flowing out of mutual funds, it's been in the hundreds of billions. That's one main source of revenue for the industry. The commission income to hedge funds – the 2 and 20 deals are not in existence in the hedge fund to the degree they were previously. You have huge pressures for commission income to Wall Street firms. One, the customers are really hurting and two, the market took off at the end of the year but the volumes were relatively low. If you take a look at investment banking, the big blockbuster deals that took place in 2105 were not there in 2016.

Mark Cuban

I'm willing to bet that these companies building new plants ... this will lead to fewer people being employed. How does [Trump] deal with displaced workers? Amazon is the greatest start-up in the world. I thought uncertainty was bad [for Wall Street], too. But the market doesn't care if Mike Pence is named president.

Lukman Otunuga

With risk aversion rippling across the board amid the ongoing uncertainty, Wall Street may be vulnerable to further losses.

Erin Gibbs - S&P Global

I still think there's room to run, and we've seen that with Wall Street analysts. We've seen that target price keep moving up, along with the stock. And so it's still trading about 5 percent below the consensus target price.

Elizabeth Warren

Mr. Mnuchin is the ultimate Wall Street insider. From the moment he graduated from college until today, he has worked at a big bank or a hedge fund. If Wall Street threatens to blow up the economy again, does anyone seriously expect Mr. Mnuchin to get tough with his old buddies and tell them to knock it off?

Richard L. Trumka - AFL-CIO

He's the foreclosure king. He made billions of dollars by kicking a lot of working people out of their homes. He has been an example of what was wrong with the American economy, and if he brings that to the Treasury and spreads that, I think the American economy will suffer dramatically and again, Wall Street will profit and workers will get hurt.

Richard L. Trumka - AFL-CIO

He promised that he wouldn't let Wall Street get away with murder, and he's changing the rules and doing away with Dodd-Frank and doing away with the fiduciary rule. What [American workers] had in mind when they voted for change and a rewrite of the American rules was that workers' wages, income and retirement assets will be increased and it wouldn't come at the expense of us, and Wall Street wouldn't get a free, huge gift, which is what these changes are. It wasn't what we expected, and it wasn't what we wanted and, the last thing is, it's terrible for the economy.

Harry Waisbren

Trump has just taken the [Goldman Sachs] executives, brought them into the White House, and it's absolutely disgusting, especially considering how he won the Republican primary as well as the general election chastising the other candidates for their fealty to Wall Street. The idea of Occupy Wall Street, that we need a government that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent, lives on. It was totally visible and strengthened throughout Bernie Sanders' candidacy.

Phil Angelides

In the wake of the financial crisis, millions of families lost their homes. Millions of people lost their jobs. The economy was wrecked and communities across the country were devastated. Big Wall Street banks admitted wrongdoing and paid tens of billions of dollars in fines. And now, with bankers at his side, President Trump begins to rip apart protections put in place to protect America's families and our economy.

Margaret Yang - CMC Markets

Wall Street is probably cheering Donald Trump's move to revise the Dodd-Frank Act, which are regulatory rules to inhibit banks and brokers after the 2008 subprime crisis. ... If the Dodd-Frank Act is revised or removed, it will mark a great step toward financial deregulation. A deregulated Wall Street will create a new wave of bullish sentiment in the short term.

Phillip Swagel

You could expect pushback, that this is about favouring Wall Street over Main Street.

Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump talked a big game about Wall Street during his campaign – but as president, we're finding out whose side he's really on. Today, after literally standing alongside big bank and hedge fund CEOs, he announced two orders – one that will make it easier for investment advisors to cheat you out of your retirement savings, and another that will put two former Goldman Sachs executives in charge of gutting the rules that protect you from financial fraud and another economic meltdown.

Tammy Baldwin

When Wall Street insiders and corporate executives move through the revolving door from the private sector to public service, they should not be rewarded with golden parachutes simply for joining the Trump Administration.

Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump talked a big game about Wall Street during his campaign – but as president, we're finding out whose side he's really on. The Wall Street bankers and lobbyists whose greed and recklessness nearly destroyed this country may be toasting each other with champagne, but the American people have not forgotten the 2008 financial crisis – and they will not forget what happened today.

David Rosenberg - AeroFarms

People on Bay Street and on Wall Street love to believe in the wealth effect on spending from what the equity market does and it is actually way down near the bottom of the list for what really drives consumer confidence. What has a much more powerful impact on confidence is job creation and growth in the paycheck. If Donald Trump has his view that trade deficits with anybody have to be redressed that is a much bigger deal for Canada than the next few points on the TSX.

Michael Farr

The message wasn't sent properly. If people had been prepared, whether they liked it or didn't like it, Wall Street can accept that. But Wall Street really reacts to surprises and a lot of people were surprised. It could become one, but not yet.

Stewart Friedman

There is now more of an interest in meaning and creating social value. I'm not surprised to see women from Wall Street at the Women's March last week. … Material gain is just one part of what it means to be successful, and it's not even the most important part.

Nelson Saiers

I take this ... code and turn it into these very striking visual shapes – circles, squares, triangles – that are on the background of a lot of these Wall Street pieces.

Evan Lucas

The Australian market is tracking gains from Wall Street, and there were also some good leads from the oil sector. We also saw a jump back in bond yields which is healthy for the financial sector over in the U.S.. I don't see a rate hike, neither do I see a rate cut for next 12 months from January to December.

Mike van Dulken - Accendo Markets

Wall Street looks like it has potential to try for the magic 20,000 record high that has eluded it for so long.

Bob Doll - Nuveen Asset Management

Wall Street love[s] the idea that we have a pro-growth president, but we had a press conference, we had an inaugural address, and he really didn't talk about those issues, and I think that's caused a little bit of a sag. I think the market's saying, I made a list: trade deals, tax cuts, tax reform, repatriation, Obamacare, Supreme Court, immigration, ISIS, fight the press, infrastructure. What are your three most important ones? What are you going tackle first? You can't do them all.

Chuck Schumer

But where our values are different we're going to oppose him, whether it's the Affordable Care Act or rolling back the limitations of Wall Street or clean air or clean water. It's our values that will decide things, plain and simple.

Nailah Ellis-Brown

We've got Wall Street, and we've got small businesses like mine here on Clay Street. I would love for the President to represent the smaller communities as well.

Jes Staley

I think the Volcker rule is very clear, they want to move Wall Street from managing proprietary and trading desks to being agents and broker dealers for the broader capital markets.

Bill Keenan

Markets are down on profit-taking and we have a negative lead from Wall Street... financials and resources have had a really strong run. Markets are also waiting to see what comes out of Donald Trump's inaugural address.

Adam Green

We expect Trump to continue betraying his own voters by siding with billionaires and Wall Street instead of them – and therefore the pool of Trump voters to find and elevate will get bigger and bigger.

Sherrod Brown

Mr. Mnuchin's cozy ties to Wall Street raise serious red flags that demand serious answers.

Francesco D'Acunto

It's all about changing dynamics on the trading floor. Institutions can no longer act like 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'.

David Einhorn

We'd like to share our views of what a Trump presidency (TP) might look like and why we believe we are well-positioned for 2017. In short, we believe that the post-Great Recession easy money policies have been good for Wall Street but bad for Main Street. It's possible that the TP reverses these policies.

Dan Senecal - Newfleet Asset Management

There has been a lack of supply and it seems that Wall Street is doing what it does best, which is feed the machine.

Wally Charnoff

When Wall Street came into the space, a lot of tools and sophistication chased them in. Once Wall Street said, Hey this is an asset class that we're going to pay attention to,' then companies started developing data analytics, technologies, acquisition tools.

Joseph Osha

The stock is down so much today because it's overvalued. If you look at what the company has achieved [compared to a year ago], they're doing OK. Here's the problem: The company has ... grown pretty fast in a short period of time and Wall Street analysts have continued to extrapolate that into the future.

Dennis Kelleher

Wall Street is salivating at their reversal of fortune. If you get to keep profits and stick taxpayers with the losses, why not?

Adam Sarhan - Sarhan Capital

We're seeing the exact opposite of what happened last year, in terms of investing and sentiment. The macro picture is improving and the stock market is forecasting better economic data and stronger earnings. That bodes well for Main Street and Wall Street.

Justin Walters

While we've seen wildly positive sentiment in many of the investor and consumer surveys released recently, it appears that Wall Street strategists don't have high expectations for the stock market in the year ahead.

Adam Sarhan - Sarhan Capital

Santa needs to visit Wall Street in order for the Dow to get above 20,000. We know Santa is making his rounds, so if he doesn't visit today there's a very high likelihood he visits next week.

Lukman Otunuga

Although Wall Street succumbed to the bears on Thursday, the heightened expectations of a Santa rally elevating the Dow Jones to the golden 20,000 mark could re-attract risk-hungry investors. With Christmas this weekend and New Year's just over a week away, global stocks may meander between losses and gains as investors strategize for 2017.

Jim Marous

If the decisions made by the Trump administration are seen as supporting the 'old Wall Street', that will bring the connection with Goldman to the forefront.

Donald J. Trump

Honestly, their editorial board doesn't get it. I don't think they understand business. I don't think The Wall Street Journal editorial board, and I know some of them, they're really nice. I don't think they understand business.

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to let Wall Street get away with murder. Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us.

Michael Lewis

If things go well, traders keep the money and if things go badly, it becomes the taxpayers' problem. This kind of weird socialism for elite Wall Street guys is what got us into the politics that we have today.

Patty Murray

After running on the idea that he was going to stand with the common man and fight Wall Street and big business, President-elect Trump is putting together a gold-plated and mahogany, Trump Style Cabinet of Wall Street bankers, billionaires, millionaires, friends, insiders, campaign contributors and cronies.

Stanley Collender

People who come from Wall Street quickly find that they can't just make a decision and have it happen. It's not like being a CEO. There is a lot more compromise involved.

Maxine Waters

Donald Trump ran a campaign on anti-Wall Street rhetoric, but appointing a former hedge fund manager, Goldman Sachs executive, and bank CEO as Treasury Secretary shows his true colors. Mr. Mnuchin is a Wall Street insider with ties to big banks that have a troubling past of putting profits ahead of consumers and taxpayers.

Brian Lidsky

If you're not in one of those top three or four plays, you're probably not going to get a lot of Wall Street support in your acquisitions.

Gary Kaltbaum

You went from a market expecting higher taxes to now lower taxes, a market expecting more regulations now less regulations, a market expecting Elizabeth Warren (no friend of Wall Street) as Treasury secretary and Bernie Sanders (a Democratic presidential hopeful who wanted to tax the rich and boost government spending on new programs) heading the budget committee to now conservatives in those spots.

Lukman Otunuga

An air of caution swept across the financial markets as doubts of a successful OPEC deal weigh heavily on global sentiment. Although Wall Street concluded last week near historical highs, losses could be realized if Asia's and Europe's bearish contagion contaminate American shares.

Dick Bove

There is a need for what big banks and Wall Street do for the economy. The new supposed leaders of the Trump administration appear to understand this. Therefore, it is highly likely that banking regulations will be meaningfully eased in the next year. I still think this cannot be done by revoking Dodd Frank. It must occur at the Fed.

Bernie Sanders

Which side are you on? Can you go out and raise substantial sums of money from the wealthy and Wall Street and those powerful special interest then convince the American people you are on the side of workers and the middle class. Or you do you finally have to say we are going to take on the oligarchy?

Alan Gayle - RidgeWorth Investments

Wall Street is going to be watching a lot of (Trump's) appointments and policy announcements to see whether it validates the more optimistic tone we've seen in the markets in the past few days.

Michael Brune - Sierra Club

Coal is not coming back. Ask investors on Wall Street, or regulators at the state and local level who are choosing solar and wind because of basic economics.

Jim Cramer

I think it's possible that they are being a little too hopeful … but nevertheless, we need to accept that cynicism has been knocked for a loop here and cautious optimism has descended upon Wall Street in a way I haven't seen since Ronald Reagan won the White House 36 years ago.

Bernie Sanders

You cannot be a party which on one hand says we're in favour of working people, we're in favour of the needs of young people but we don't quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You've got to decide which side you're on.

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

With the market being up as much as it was in one day … if the only people who voted were Wall Street, Hillary would be a shoo-in. Democratic presidents outperform, but Republican Congresses do even better.

Brian Gardner - Keefe Bruyette & Woods

There is a closeness and a comfort level between the titans on Wall Street and the Clintons.

Art Cashin

I think what we're seeing is a sign of confusion. There's a lot of chatter on the floor and in the Wall Street watering holes that you may see several more leaks.

Brian Belski - BMO Capital Markets

We … are probably the most neutral we've been ever in my almost-27-year career on Wall Street.

Jim Cramer

On Wall Street you don't spring unexpected plans about the need for major spending without expecting a backlash of skepticism.

Jim Cramer

Jeff Bezos doesn't want to cut off his nose to spite his face, or please Wall Street.

Grant Cardone - The New York Times

I would never, ever invest money in a 401(k). Why would I go to work, have my employer give me another $6,000 a year, and then take that money and send it off to Wall Street, where I can't even touch it for 30 years? I wouldn't do that.

Grant Cardone - The New York Times

Why would I go to work, have my employer give me another $6,000 a year, and then take that money and send it off to Wall Street, where I can't even touch it for 30 years? I wouldn't do that.

Grant Cardone - The New York Times

Wall Street is telling you to invest little bits, early. They don't believe in your ability to earn money. People need to show the ability to produce more revenue – not invest it – first. People get rich because they produce revenue, not because they make little investments over time.

David Rolfe - Wedgewood Partners

Despite what Tim Cook has tried to do over the past couple of years, he probably can't please many on Wall Street, but as a shareholder, we're very pleased by the results and customers apparently are very pleased by these products.

Jim Cramer

In retrospect, Wall Street completely misvalued Time Warner the enterprise. The stock simply did not reflect the company's true worth because the ultimate arbiter is another business swooping in to make an acquisition, not the incredible fickle nature of the stock market.

Jim Cramer

On days like today the market does seem unfair to me. A fine executive like Jeff Bewkes should not have to wait for years before the value of his company is recognized on Wall Street.

Jared Bernstein

I think it's highly, highly unlikely that she'd appoint a Treasury [Secretary] with a Wall Street background, with the exception of someone like Gary Gensler who not only has a solid record of prosecuting financial market excesses, but is already close to the candidate.

Ted Kwong

Today is just further proof that hyper-partisan, ethically challenged Katie McGinty will be a rubber stamp for everything Hillary Clinton wants to do in Washington. Pat Toomey has been, and will continue to be, an independent leader in the Senate on issues ranging from gun safety to ending Wall Street bailouts.

Jim Swanson

Companies are optimistic about their great plans going forward, and analysts rely on corporate guidance. As you get closer to reality, companies will talk analysts to a more realistic number. They want to beat Wall Street expectations. It's human nature and shows up every cycle.

Masahiro Ichikawa - Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management

All three Wall Street indexes rebounded overnight and crude oil prices are rising, and these are supportive factors for the market.

Tim Kaine

We've got to keep regulation on abusive practices and on Wall Street, so that Wall Street doesn't tank Main Street again. These are their ideas, but they're our ideas too: We put Dodd-Frank in place for a reason, and we want to strengthen it, not get rid of or weaken it.

Tim Kaine

(Clinton) is going to listen, but we are very very committed, with respect to Wall Street, that the kinds of abuses that led the American economy to go into a free fall at the end of the last administration – we're not going to tolerate that again and we're going to make sure we keep protections and guardrails in place so that the American public is protected.

Tim Kaine

There's not a conflict with being willing to work with (Wall Street) and also being for tough regulation. You often have to work with to find the dimensions of the problem and make sure that your solutions are going to have the effect that you want – rather than unforeseen consequences.

Ted Kwong

Pat Toomey has proven he will stand up to his own party for Pennsylvania families, like on gun safety, fighting corporate welfare, or ending the Wall Street bailouts once and for all. Katie McGinty can't name a single disagreement with her party, whether it's the reckless Iran deal or thousands in new middle-class tax hikes.

Hillary Clinton

There was a lot of complaining about Dodd-Frank, but there was also a need to do something because, for political reasons, if you were an elected member of Congress and people in your constituency were losing jobs and shutting businesses and everybody in the press is saying it's all the fault of Wall Street, you can't sit idly by and do nothing, but what you do is really important.

Alejandro Garcia Padilla

Rather they are the culmination of decades of misguided and unscrupulous public policies in San Juan, Wall Street and Washington.

Jack Lew - U.S Treasury

We need to protect consumers and we also need to protect the financial system, and we shouldn't be rolling back Wall Street reform.

Jack Lew - U.S Treasury

We saw in 2007 to 2008 how bad consumer practices could actually accumulate and contribute to a financial crisis. We need to protect consumers and we also need to protect the financial system, and we shouldn't be rolling back Wall Street reform.

Hal S. Scott

It really affects the ability of the federal government, and in particular the Fed, to be a lender of last resort to Wall Street if we go into another crisis. The more unpopular Wall Street becomes, the less possible it is for the Fed to support it in a crisis.

Doug Reynolds

What often happens is you get saturation in Eagle Ford and Bakken fields, and only so many people can work there at a time. If there's money to be made, more than in any other industry, the market, the Wall Street money will go into new companies that are willing to go into Alaska even if it is a little bit more expensive.

Art Cashin

They're afraid this already wacky campaign could turn into the Wild West. Trump tweeted out that he feels unshackled. You're hearing the word 'landslide' and a lot more comments about a 'Pelosi House of Representatives.' They don't want either party to control everything. Gridlock is good for Wall Street.

Hillary Clinton

I believe strongly that we need to make sure that Wall Street never wrecks Main Street again. No bank is too big to fail, and no executive is too powerful to jail.'.

Brian Leach - Facebook

Clinton is the politicians' politician - exactly the Wall Street insider Bernie described.

Masahiro Ichikawa - Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management

The dollar pulled back slightly against the yen and this looks to have stalled the Nikkei's advance. As for the U.S. jobs report, the main points are if Wall Street can weather potentially upbeat data and how much the dollar can gain against the yen.

Anthony Scaramucci

Wall Street is not the devil. In fact we are at our best when (there) is harmony between Main Street and Wall Street and we hope to restore that.

Eddy Elfenbein

It's an excuse of convenience. Underpromising, so that they can over-deliver later. Wall Street loves excuses that are particularly external.

Hillary Clinton

It's outrageous that eight years after a cowboy culture on Wall Street wrecked our economy, we are still seeing powerful bankers playing fast and loose with the law. No American should ever be taken advantage of, like thousands were by Wells Fargo.

Joseph J. Thorndike - Tax Analysts

In 1933, during the famous Pecora investigation of Wall Street, numerous financial leaders were revealed to have paid no income taxes in the wake of the crash of 1929. Their trading losses wiped out all their other income.

Jim Cramer

The exchange stocks are experiencing a renaissance on Wall Street, thanks to a huge wave of consolidation that has wiped out so much of the competition. And in this environment, I think the group can keep moving higher.

Elizabeth Warren

The only way that Wall Street will change is if executives face jail time when they preside over massive frauds. Until then it will be business as usual, and at giant banks like Wells Fargo, that seems to mean cheating as many customers, investors and employees as they possibly can.

Len Yaffe

Allergan is making an excellent move into the NASH space, which is under appreciated by Wall Street and one of the major categories of untreated diseases.

Chris Weston

One suspects that there will be an air of relief and many will be pleased that the technical glitch happened on a day where corporate news flow was limited and the leads from Wall Street were as flat as you will ever see.

Kalle Lasn - Adbusters

I see Occupy Wall Street as being another one of those great historical moments, when something surprising happened and a whole generation got politicized. After a generation gets politicized, then who knows what the hell they're going to do after that?

Jacob Weinig

I don't think that the Occupy movement itself, people sitting in the streets and parks downtown or outside of [Goldman Sachs CEO] Lloyd Blankfein's apartment is the reason we've rallied 75 percent in the last five years. What it did highlight was the difference between Wall Street and Main Street, and you can correlate that a little bit to the performance of the U.S. economy versus the performance of U.S. stocks.

Jacob Weinig

What it did highlight was the difference between Wall Street and Main Street, and you can correlate that a little bit to the performance of the U.S. economy versus the performance of U.S. stocks.

Elizabeth Warren

We still have a problem on Wall Street, where these giant financial institutions think they can make money ... they can build profit models on cheating the American people. Let's face it, at a community bank that kind of thing is not going to happen.

Scott Crawford - 451 Research

Recent security debuts on the public market haven't necessarily found bullish investors on Wall Street, which may have influenced LogRhythm's move.

William Dudley - Federal Reserve Bank of New York

In the past, the city has counted on job growth from Wall Street to fuel economic growth during recoveries and expansions. This time around, however, job gains in the securities industry have been quite meager. Is picking up much of the slack created by the softness of the securities industry.

Hillary Clinton

Don't believe it. He would give trillions in tax cuts to big corporations, millionaires and Wall Street money managers. That would explode our national debt and eventually lead to massive cuts in priorities like education, health care, and environmental protection.

Hillary Clinton

He would give trillions in tax cuts to big corporations, millionaires, and Wall Street money managers. In his speech on Monday, he called for a new tax loophole -- let's call it the 'Trump Loophole.

Hillary Clinton

Wall Street, corporations, and the super-rich are going to start paying their fair share of taxes. Not because we resent success. Because when more than 90% of the gains have gone to the Top 1%, that's where the money is.

Barack Obama

If you want someone with a lifelong track record of fighting for higher wages, better benefits, a fairer tax code, a bigger voice for workers, and stronger regulations on Wall Street, then you should vote for Hillary Clinton. That's why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end.

Jill Stein

I'm the only participant in the election right now that is not bought and paid for by Wall Street that refuses corporate money, lobbyist money and Super PACs, so we have the unique liberty to stand up for what it is that the American people are clamoring for.

Brian Gardner - Keefe Bruyette & Woods

Maybe they decided they had other fish to fry. In their outreach to (Bernie) Sanders voters and the unending populist attack that he has tying Clinton to Wall Street and the Wall Street establishment, that would have been an effective line for him and would have fit well in the speech. I don't understand it.

Greg Valliere

Being a cynic, I would say they're so far behind on fundraising, why would they want to antagonize Wall Street at this point? Just because something is in a platform doesn't mean he's going to advocate it. A platform is just a bunch of words.

Christine Wang - CNBC

The coffee chain said it saw global same-store sales increase by 4% during the quarter, below Wall Street expectations of 5.7%, according to FactSet.

Peter Trubowitz

It's one of the things she really has to do next week ... because that is the general perception. Her problem is to reassure Americans that she can be trusted, that she's credible and ... you're better betting on her than Trump's temperament. And one of the ways to do that is to really push back against Wall Street.

Jeff Bock

A film like Wolf of Wall Street, with DiCaprio and Scorsese, is an evergreen property and it could easily make another $100 million in the near future. All the talk just helps remind people about the movie.

Greg Valliere

There's really this pervasive anti-Wall Street, anti-business view in both parties. I think there's a cloud over Wall Street that's not going to dissipate anytime soon. The problem with Trump is just the level of uncertainty. With Hillary, I think she's more practical. She's not going to try to put Glass-Steagall back together again. She's not going to try to dismantle Dodd Frank.

Paul Manafort

The Obama-Clinton years have passed legislation that has been favorable to the big banks, which is why you see all the Wall Street money going to her. They know she's their champion, and they are supporting her fully.

Tony Dwyer - Canaccord Genuity

It's fantastic. It's Wall Street lore. The Fed is not going to move, they are going to be lower for longer, the yield curve if flattening, how could you possibly want to buy a financial or a bank when there is European crisis and Asia is slowing?

Hillary Clinton

Let's make sure that Wall Street, corporations and the super rich pay their fair share of taxes.

Jesse Tron

There is absolutely more pressure from investors now on retailers [to close stores] than what I can remember in the past several years. That includes the recession. You're seeing that pressure from Wall Street to trim the fat and make the stock price as valuable as possible.

Nancy Pelosi

The latest plank of House Republicans' Wrong Way agenda is nothing more than a wish list for polluters, unscrupulous financial advisers and Wall Street. It will do nothing to create jobs in our country.

Michael Hartnett

The cocktail of QE, ZIRP and NIRP has been a potent one for Wall Street and the price of financial assets in the past eight years.

Michael Karp - Options Group

The competition for talent between Wall Street and tech firms is intensifying. The dynamics of recruitment have changed.

Ken Langone

This one here bothers me more than all the others put together because I can empathize here very easily ... [as] a rough-around-the-edges Italian kid going to Wall Street when it was all whiteshoe 50 years ago.

Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump wants to strip the U.S. government's power to apply rules to payday lenders, abolish this critical consumer watchdog, and roll back the other Wall Street reforms that we put in place after the financial crisis.

Dennis Kelleher

If Wall Street really cared about Main Street it would already act in its clients' best interest, rather than secretly pocketing tens of billions of dollars from hardworking Americans just trying to save for a decent retirement.

Bernie Sanders

And that means standing up to Wall Street, standing up to the greed of corporate America. Even now and then, standing up to the media. And that means having a candidate who can excite working families, excite young people, bring them into the political process, create a large voter turnout.

Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump is worried about helping poor little Wall Street? Let me find the world's smallest violin to play a sad, sad song. Trump has gone from vowing to be tough on Wall Street to ''kissing the fannies of poor, misunderstood Wall Street bankers.

Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump is worried about helping poor little Wall Street? Let me find the world's smallest violin to play a sad, sad song. Can Donald Trump even name three things that Dodd-Frank does? Seriously, someone should ask him.

Bernie Sanders

This campaign, unlike Secretary Clinton's, has not raised $15 million from Wall Street and millions more from other special interests. This candidate has not given speeches behind closed doors on Wall Street for $225,000 a speech.

Bernie Sanders

When I talk about difference between Secretary Clinton and myself, one of the major differences is precisely how we raise money for our campaigns. In addition to that, as you know, Secretary Clinton has given speeches on Wall Street for $225,000 a speech. Not a bad day's work.

Bernie Sanders

Are you qualified to be president of the United States when you're raising millions of dollars from Wall Street, an entity whose greed, recklessness and illegal behaviour helped destroy our economy?

Thomas P. DiNapoli

Wall Street bonuses and profits fell in 2015, reflecting a challenging year in the financial markets. While the cost of legal settlements appears to be easing, ongoing weaknesses in the global economy and market volatility may dampen profits in 2016. Both the state and city budgets depend heavily on the securities industry and lower profits could mean fewer industry jobs and less tax revenue.

Scott Anderson

Despite panic on Wall Street about impending recession, Main Street goes about its business as usual. This report will get the Fed's attention, and raises the odds of another rate hike before too long.

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

Eventually, stock investors may again become troubled by the speed and frequency of potential Fed interest rate hikes. Initially though, better economic reports should continue to calm recession fears and bolster Wall Street earnings forecasts. However, given that the missing 'catalyst' for the stock market has seemingly arrived – better economic growth – perhaps the stock market is headed for another challenge of the all-time highs.

Mark Luschini - Janney Montgomery Scott

This information today, while actually good for Main Street, is less than good for a Wall Street that has become addicted to the Fed's largesse.

Hillary Clinton

Americans are right to be angry, but we're also hungry for real solutions. Wall Street can never be allowed to threaten Main Street again.

Bernie Sanders

Let's not insult the intelligence of the American people. Why in God's name does Wall Street make huge campaign contributions? I guess just for the fun of it, they want to throw money around.

Bernie Sanders

The people aren't dumb. Let's not insult the intelligent of the American people. Why in God's name does Wall Street make huge campaign contributions? I guess just for the fun of it, they want to throw money around.

Bernie Sanders

One of the things we should do is not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. I am very proud to be the only candidate up here who does not have a Super PAC, who's not raising huge sums of money from Wall Street. And special interests.

Hillary Clinton

I've got their number, the Wall Street guys.Asked if she would release transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street interests and others, Clinton was noncommittal, saying.

Jake Dollarhide - Longbow Asset Management

Initially when oil was down, the convenient line was 'Well, it's good for the other nine sectors, . That tune has changed. Now, it's a contagion to the other nine sectors. It's a contagion to Main Street and Wall Street.

Bernie Sanders

There is something profoundly wrong when 58 percent of all new income since the Wall Street crash has gone to the top one percent.

Bernie Sanders

Together we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California. And that is that the government of our great country belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors and their super Pacs.

Jeh Johnson

I have spoken to the CEO of United, Jeff Smisek, myself. It appears from what we know at this stage that malfunctions at United and the stock exchange were not the result of any nefarious actor. We know less about the Wall Street Journal at this point, except that their system is in fact up again, as is the United Airlines system.

Bernie Sanders

Wall Street is an entity of unbelievable economic and political power, that's a fact.

Bernie Sanders

Wall Street is an entity of unbelievable economic and political power; that's a fact. I believe that corruption is rampant. The business model of Wall Street is fraud.

Greg Valliere

The problem is a lot of these new Tea Party members actually have great antipathy towards Wall Street and the big banks. Wall Street and big banks are the villains for a lot of the Tea Party crowd. So no I think the lobbying is not really being met with open arms among a lot of these radical Republicans.

Ted Cruz

One of the reasons people are so unhappy with Washington is they get a sense that there are special rules that apply. Wall Street gets special exemptions, the big banks get special exemptions, Dodd-Frank sets up rules that hammer small banks, hammer community banks, hammer the little guys. But what happens to the big guys? They keep getting bigger.

George W. Bush

It is important for our citizens to have understood, that which affects Wall Street affects Main Street as well. As our nations carry out this plan, we must make sure the actions of one country do not contradict or undermine the actions of another. In an interconnected world, no nation will gain by driving down the fortunes of another. We're in this together, we'll come through it together.

Iman Elsayed

I am a registered nurse in New York. I've been coming here for the last two weeks, before work, after work, during lunch break, to support 'Occupy Wall Street'. To stand up against what's going on, bailing out the banks.

Barack Obama

This week, we have to work quickly, in a bipartisan fashion, to resolve the immediate crisis and to avert an even broader economic catastrophe. As we do act, Washington has to recognise that true economic recovery requires addressing not just the crisis on Wall Street, but the crisis on Main Street.

Jim Frederick

For the past 20 to 25 years, almost a full generation, protest had stopped being a really viable way to change the political order. And then suddenly, almost out of nowhere, all across the globe, you have global, mass market protests that… we're two regimes down and counting, whether it's in Russia and London, Wall Street and all across the Middle East, suddenly the protest has become one of the ways people are actually taking back political power.

Alan Lichtman

Congress is like Wall Street, it operates on two things: fear and greed. They are not going to be greedy for anything from Obama, but how do you make them fearful, only by getting the public behind you.

Barack Obama

A massive fraud that was made possible in part because the regulators who were assigned to oversee Wall Street dropped the ball. And if the financial crisis has taught us anything it's that this failure of oversight and accountability doesn't just harm individuals involved, it has the potential to devastate our entire economy, and that's a failure we can't afford. Financial regulatory reform will be one of the top legislative priorities of my administration.

Rick Santorum

On health care, the environment, cap and trade and on the Wall Street bailouts, Mitt Romney has the same positions as Barack Obama, and in fact, would not be the best person to come up and fight for your voices for freedom in America.

Porter Bibb

He's coveted the Wall Street Journal for years. Eleven years ago and then again about nine years later he made overtures to the the Dow Jones and was rebuffed. This is the capstone of his career as the number one media mogul in the world right now.

Barack Obama

We will not go back to the days of reckless behaviour and unchecked access that was at the heart of this crisis where too many were motivated by the appetite for quick kills and bloated bonuses. Those on Wall Street cannot resume taking risks without regard for consequences.

Hugh Johnson

I think it's accepting the fact that it's going to have much more intense oversight, much more intense regulation. But I don't think it's embracing it. Wall Street never embraces any regulation of any magnitude from the federal government.

Barack Obama

One of the messages that I have to Congress is get this done. Democrats, Republicans, step up to the plate, get it done, and understand that even as you get it done to stabilise the markets, we have more work to do to make sure that main street is getting the same kind of help that Wall Street.

Barack Obama

The reforms making their way through Congress will hold Wall Street accountable. So we can help prevent another financial crisis like the one that we are still recovering from. We will put in place the toughest consumer protection in our history.

Barack Obama

Some on Wall Street forgot that behind every dollar traded or leveraged there is a family looking to buy a house, or pay for an education, open a business, save for retirement, what happens on Wall Street has real consequences across the country, across our economy.

John McCain

I am here to send a message to Washington and Wall Street. We are not going to leave the workers here in Michigan hung out to dry while we give billions of taxpayers' dollars to Wall Street. We are going to take care of the workers. They're the ones who deserve our help.

Julio Montaner

When there is Wall Street emergency or an oil spill, billions upon billions of dollars are quickly mobilised, but when there is a need for a rapid response to the global health crisis of HIV and AIDS, people's health deserve a similar response, and yet we can not find it. We must remember that another 7500 people will become infected today, as they did yesterday, and will do tomorrow.

George Papandreou

The problem started in 2008 at the crash of Wall Street where the banking system had made terrible fraudulent activities around the world and that of course brought out some of the weak links in the Euro and many other countries. I say we first have our own responsibility to make our country better, but we have a problem but we are not the problem though.

Nancy Pelosi

Working in a bi-partisan way we sent a message to Wall Street. The party is over, the era of golden parachutes for high-flying Wall Street operators is over. No longer will the US taxpayer bail out the recklessness of Wall Street. And that's the news that this legislation brings.

Barack Obama

Right now, our economy is trapped in a vicious circle: the turmoil on Wall Street means a new round of belt-tightening for families and businesses on Main Street – and as folks produce less and consume less, that just deepens the problems in our financial markets.

Barack Obama

We need action and action now. That's why I have asked my economic team to develop an economic recovery plan for both Wall Street and Main Street that will help save or create at least two and a half million jobs. We are rebuilding our infrastructure, improving our schools, reducing our dependence on oil and saving billions of dollars.

Barack Obama

In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility of Wall Street before the hard-work and sacrifice of folks down on Main street. In 5 days you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy so that everybody has a chance to succeed.

Barack Obama

The era of greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street and in Washington has led us to a perilous moment. The circumstances we face require decisive action because your job, your savings, your economic security, your house are now at risk.

Barack Obama

If he were alive to day I believe he would remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of Wall Street without demonizing all who work there. That the businessman can enter tough negotiations with his company's union without vilifying the right to collectively bargain.
