Apparently Chris Byron has departed from the New York Post, where his Monday column was a must-read. So says Greg Newton's Naked Shorts blog, confirmed by Talking Biz News.
This is sad but not too surprising, as Chris focused on small cap fraud issues that have become a declining priority for the media in recent years. He was also a harsh critic of the SEC.
As Greg pointed out, "his departure will raise cheers in boiler rooms from Boca Raton to Broad Street, at a regulatory agency or two, and probably on the floor of The World’s Most Unnecessary Securities Exchange™." The latter is, I presume, a reference to the dreadful American Stock Exchange.
