High-End Female Asset Analysis

A husband and wife were having dinner at a very expensive restaurant this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives husband a big open-mouthed kiss, then says she’ll see him later and walks away.
The wife glares at her husband and asks, “Who was that?”
“Oh,” replies the husband, “she’s my mistress.”
“Well, that’s the last straw,” storms the wife. “I’ve had enough! I want a divorce!”
“I can understand that,” replies her husband, “but remember, if we get a it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris , no more wintering in Barbados , no more summers in Tuscany , no more Lexus in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours.”
Just then, a friend of theirs enters the restaurant with a gorgeous babe on his arm.
“Who’s that woman with Jim?” asks the wife.

“That’s his mistress,” says her husband.
“Ours is prettier!” says the wife.

In hard economic times like these, you have to find some humor in life.  The guys over at Long Short Capital wrote a funny post analyzing “Who, in the current financial climate, is in the best position: the high-end wife, the high-end girlfriend or the high-end hooker?” as well as “their relative vulnerability in relation to the vulnerability of the Wall Street honcho who might be their husband, boyfriend and/or client?”

Also importantly, for clarification, their definition of “High-end” means “extremely firm buttocks and/or thighs that do not touch while standing”.  Hilarious.

The High-end Wife is likely to adopt a simultaneous “flight to quality” strategy or, in layman’s terms, “pull a Jackie O”. But she lacks the understanding of markets to know that this is a GLOBAL financial and, soon-to-be, economic crisis, so her Aristole will really be a Raffaello.
