Welcome to Stifel Morgan Keegan

I ran into a Morgan Keegan & Co. Inc. source tonight who said the rumored sale of the Memphis firm to St. Louis-based Stifel Financial Corp. is so serious that a name change is already being discussed – something like Stifel Morgan Keegan.

I’ve also been told that Stifel representatives were in town last week, and that Stifel was negotiating exclusively over Morgan Keegan for a period of time that expired Wednesday night.

If you’ve followed the national press, the most recent Bloomberg report put it like this: “Stifel remains days or weeks away from agreeing to an acquisition and may not reach a deal.”

A top official at a Memphis-based investment firm that’s a competitor of Morgan Keegan’s – and which has Morgan Keegan alums throughout its operation – told me today he’s expecting a deal as soon as Friday, Nov. 18. Others are looking for an announcement between now and Thanksgiving.

    Hope the deal goes down, but if institutional bond guys were smart (and they are), they would want an equity stake in the new firm – or better yet break away and start their own company. Steifel’s going to tear the company apart within 2 years, because all they really want is the retail brokerage.
