This members of this group, which I endlessly highlight 'cause I want everyone in them, play catch-up with each other. This morning Friedman Billings pushes T. Rowe Price ( TROW), in a week where rates are climbing higher, and the stock vaults $3? That's because it is so far behind the other asset gatherers. I believe all of these stocks are still going higher. They almost have to, given how much more money they are making than anyone thought they could. Which brings me to Citigroup ( C). Why doesn't Citigroup spin out Smith Barney? Why don't they get their own stock going -- that Turkish acquisition sure didn't -- by highlighting the worth of their securities arm? And it is a good one. I would move on that one now if I were Chuck Prince.
