113 consecutive quarters of profitability1 – a streak that began in 1988 after Black Monday took its toll. While some other firms closed their trading desks on October 19, 1987, to minimize internal losses, Raymond James kept its desks open to meet clients’ needs. That commitment to client service was the right thing to do, although it came at a cost for the company. The fourth quarter of 1987 was the first, last and only unprofitable quarter since the firm went public on July 1, 1983.
