CNBCfix critique: Venerable Wall Street publication, our favorite read each week, may insist on the serial comma, but there's no excuse for slowing down the reader in the Nov. 13, 2017, edition in the age of instant information …
     "More than ever, what happens in Washington doesn't stay in Washington, but reverberates on Wall Street." (No comma after the second "Washington")
     "The government arrested and detained dozens of princes, ministers, and businessmen accused of corruption, and quickly froze some of their assets." (No comma after "corruption," and honestly, shouldn't be one after "ministers" either)
     "The Senate bill would delay a corporate tax cut until 2019, and double the estate-tax exemption to a maximum of about $11 million per person while leaving the 40% tax in place." (No comma after "2019")
     "In Japan, an election win for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling coalition last month signals continued monetary easing, and has kept the yen weak against the dollar and euro, creating a near-term tailwind for many of Sony's businesses." (No comma after "easing")
     "Shoppers have been less willing to take on credit-card debt; they're favoring bigger-ticket items, a side effect of the recovering housing industry; and they're buying more healthful and private-label products, and doing so online." (No comma after "products," also should be a comma and not semicolon after "industry")
     "Last Thursday, the Standard & Poor's 500 index dropped as much as 1.1%, but battled back to finish down just 0.4%." (No comma after "1.1%")
     "The stock surged over 30% within days of launch, but crashed after the company clarified the 'accounting treatment' of the game." (No comma after "launch")
     "Anonymous sources told Reuters that the bank could raise its payout to 40% of net profit this year, and as much as 50% by 2020." (No comma after "year")
     "That wager could prove catastrophic if volatility suddenly surges, and stocks fall." (No comma after "surges")
     "Interactive Brokers will offer Bitcoin futures trading if those conditions are met, and consider stopping doing business with some clearing firms if they're not." (No comma after "met")
     "GM is expected to earn $6.32 a share this year, and $5.86 in 2018." (No comma after "year")
     "He has an Overweight rating on the stock, and a $15 price target." (No comma after "stock")
     "Then they decide if they want to pay every year for insurance, or let their account grow." (No comma after "insurance")
     "It also allows people to not only stay in their home, but also monetize it to help pay for their care." (No comma after "home")
     "'We ask our analysts to take an independent view of what they think are the most creditworthy companies today, and 18 to 24 months into the future,' Kimball says." (No comma after "today")
     "The Core Plus Bond team is organized by sector, and includes specialists in high-yield, global sovereign, and securitized debt." (No comma after "sector" and really not after "sovereign" either)
     "Yet shorting the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX) with 77% short interest, has been a fantastic investment as it has fallen some 57% annualized over the past five years." (No comma after "interest")
     "It is hard to argue against Dalio's insistence that employees be evaluated with 'radical honesty,' rather than with kindness in an attempt to bring their performance up to a higher level." (No comma after "honesty," also the last 12 words could be shortened to "to improve their performance.")
     "Burton Malkiel is the author of A Random Walk down Wall Street, and is the chief investment officer of Wellfront." (No comma after "Street")
     "After Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, U.S. stock markets fell by about 11%, but recovered within six weeks." (No comma after "11%")
Instances where comma is needed but missing:
     "PayPal shares are up 23% since we recommended them three months ago ('Why PayPal still has room to grow,' Aug. 26) but one potential big growth catalyst that we cited then hasn't even had a chance to play out yet." (Should be a comma after "Aug. 26)")
     "The major market indexes have been making new highs, but beneath the surface things aren't so bubbly." (Should be comma after "surface")
     "Porsche has so far won in court and analysts see the company continuing to prevail." (Should be comma after "court")
     "I do the same, but because I'm in New York we have to use a higher number — up to $2,000 a month." (Should be comma after "York")
     "Most of the time they decide not to buy it, and when they do it's usually more of an emotional decision than a financial one." (Should be comma after "time" and comma after "do")
     "Under normal circumstances the Securities and Exchange Commission bars funds from making 'affiliated transactions,' but there's a loophole in the Investment Company Act of 1940 …" (Should be comma after "circumstances")

Tyler: "This sounds like, Mr. Scaramucci, meet General Kelly. Mr. General Kelly, meet Mr. Scaramucci. And that does sounds like it did not go well"
Kayla: "You can bet that this is going to be toward the top of the list of the questions that (Sarah Huckabee Sanders) will be receiving … His appointment in the beginning ruffled feathers … at first the president really liked it, but then when Anthony Scaramucci became the story … reports in Page 6 in the New York Post about his family drama"
John Harwood: "The likeliest scenario, that, uh this is something that John Kelly, uh, who means to impose discipline on the White House staff, uh, insisted upon … Obviously in any normal White House, he would've been fired as soon as that interview took place"
Kayla: Kelly "is definitely not someone that if you are in the White House you want to be messing with"
Tony Fratto: "You can't parachute into those jobs any more than I can parachute into being a hedge fund manager"
Melissa: "It's simply bad judgment isn't it"
Pat Buchanan: Kelly "basically was repelled by what Scaramucci said and the way he said it … and he exercised immediate and swift and decisive command … I think it's an extremely healthy sign of the potential of the general ... his first step was dramatic and impressive and correct"
Sully: "President Obama went through 4 chiefs of staff in 4 years … and that was a record by the way"
John: "This is, um, a disorderly White House from the top, and that's really the problem"
Sully: "Robert Costa tweeting right now saying uh that uh apparently according to his sources the president did not like the vulgarity in the New Yorker article … He does not drink, he does not smoke, he does not necessarily curse … "

Crew. And, I, I made some- you know, it was interesting, I made some purchases …"

WaPost’s gorgeous Ylan Mui asks question of Fed chief

"You said earlier that expansions don't die of old age, but I think the other half of that is that it's often central banks that kill them off instead. So I'm wondering, um, how worried you are about the possibility that the Fed will have to turn around after hiking rates; um, other central banks that have tried to raise rates have had to do just that. Um, how damaging you think that might be to the Fed's credibility"
Answer: "So, when you say that um, central banks often kill them, I think the usual reason, um, that that- that that has been true when that has been true (sic redundant) is that central banks have begun too late to tighten policy, and they've allowed inflation to get out of control ..."

Matt Damon: "Playing 'Aguaman' (sic)? Is that the ..."
Evans: "A-qua"
Damon: "Sorry, that's a terrible joke"
Evans: "You can go the Spanish route if you want to. I mean-"
Brian Sullivan: "There is international distribution for the Justice League, so it's fine. It's the character plays (sic)"
Damon: "We're huge in Latin America, Um, uh, no, well, you know, since they, since they made Ben Batman, I've been showing up at his house every day dressed as Robin, but um, my little campaign I don't think has, has gone too well so far. So far I haven't been contacted by anyone to, to be in the movie, but with Ben in there-"
Evans: "Would you do it though Matt? Because look you have to say it would make a certain amount of sense for this cause, if you did it ONLY for this cause, it would actually make a certain amount of sense ..."
Damon: "Well, all right, uh, uh, I'm open to being in any good movie as always; it might be a bit of a stretch ..."

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera:
‘Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true,’ Karen Finerman is ‘exception that proves the rule’

Karen Finerman: "Well my first response was I just could not believe he said it. And so I, I wanted to make sure that I had it right, and I went and I looked at the video, and of course you just showed it, so yes, he said it, and, uh, I, I, I know, I know that he's apologized, that he didn't mean to offend anyone, and I believe he was saying it, he was- an attempt to be very candid, I can't believe also that he didn't think that will- would never get out, but it's sort of- I mean on so many levels, it makes me wonder, 1, what if you don't nurse, do you not then have that- are you, do you keep your judgment then if you don't nurse. That's sort of something that popped into my head"
Amanda Drury: "And also, is he also saying that global macro traders that are guys are not great dads because they're always off 24/7 on the phone trading stuff"
Karen Finerman: "Right, I just- I don't really accept that premise either. If you are a mother, I really sort of do wonder, how long this would knock you off your game for. And, it, I don't know, on so many levels, I know so many women, far more successful than I, who have done an extraordinary job of raising kids, and also, uh, you know, trading, trading their books"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "I think Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true. That women, it's not that they don't have the ability, it's just, if they have a child, priorities tend to change. It takes up a lot of time. A child is a huge, huge commitment. And so-"
Amanda Drury: "And not necessarily a bad thing"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "It's not necessarily a bad thing, he's not saying that, that they can't do it, it's just, it gets a lot tougher. Priorities often change. And I think Karen, you are awesome, but you are the exception I think that proves the rule. Let's face it: How many other women are on 'Fast Money.' I mean when you look at the breakdown of people- when you look at the breakdown of people who are on CNBC. It's a guys-and-ties network. I mean let's not kid anybody!"
Karen Finerman: "Yes I hear you-"
Brian Sullivan ridiculously removes tie: "Here we go, no more guys in ties"
Karen Finerman: "Let me just add 1 thing"
Brian Sullivan: "I don't wanna get accused of dodging the conversation. All right, I know hedge fund managers that have what they call the large-house indicator. Right. What they say is, if they have an investment manager, or a fellow hedge fund manager, whatever, that starts to build a new mansion, they will often times use that- or CEO of a company, they'll use that as a negative and either get out of it or trim, because building a home is a year-long process, takes a lot of energy, you're not focused on what you're doing. So I don't think just has to be about gender. If you've got any big undertaking you take on, that reduces your focus. I'm not defending what he said-"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "Except this happens to be about having babies for women, which is just a huge thing in, in most women's life"
Brian Sullivan: "If I was a hedge fund manager and a CEO of a company bought a 200-foot yacht, I would sell the shares of that company probably short that next day"
Karen Finerman: "I mean also there's the private plane indicator, you get the private plane, you're not hungry anymore, then you don't care. I, I don't really buy that, I think it also makes the case that women don't have the judgment to know, after they've had a baby, whether or not they are still interested in being in the game. Now that may be his experience, and I believe him when he says that's what he's found to be true, and he gave a couple examples of a, you know, two women from Maryland the '70s, he probably has more recent examples than that, but is he just open to the possibility, the possibility, that maybe it's not true, that there will never be just as many women investors as men, never, period, end of story. Isn't it possible?"
Amanda Drury: "And the other thing is Karen, and you've touched on this, I mean, we would've said in the past, it would've been decades, maybe not even so long ago, we would've said that we can't have a good female doctor, she can't possibly be on call because she's got to be at home feeding her child at night. Right?"
Karen Finerman: "And now look. Now look, there are just as many women, or maybe it's about the same number of women graduating from medical school as men and you're right, years and years ago, that was thought as an impossibility"
