So far, the latest crisis has not caused any major firms to topple into bankruptcy. But few knowledgeable people in Wall Street doubt some fright- ening failures will occur in the coming months if the stock market remains dull and leth- argic. SQUEEZE James J. Needham, chair- man of the New York Stock Ex- change, described the current affliction as "an enormous profit squeeze" and suggested recently that the capital drain- age under way in toe industry might soon force it to begin curtailing services to investors. James W. Davant, a director of the exchange and chairman Paine, Webber, Jackson and Curtis, Inc., a leading broker- age bouse, said: "I think the situation is serious. This really is the toughest period I've seen in 26 years in this business." Almost everyone agrees that the central problem has been declining revenues in the face of sharply rising costs. Wall Street has been no less im- mune to inflation than most other parts of the economy, Jly 787 Oct 767 Nov Dec Oav> Jly 172 Oct 172'i Dec 169% Barley Jly Oct Dec Rye Jly 284 Oct 289 Dec 292 756 727 163 166 167', i 249 247% 275 277 756 727 712 673 171 V4 171 250% 249 275 277 2793k Yet, its revenues have been falling, producing a classic squeeze. Profits have been dis- appearing. Wall Street's current plight is rendered even more precarious by the onset of the summer doldrums, a period usually characterized by reduced trad- ing volume in the securities markets and lower revenues for investment houses. The hard facts that describe the situation paint a gloomy picture. Consider the following: While almost every otber sector of the economy is boom- ing, the member firms of the stock exchange in the aggre- gate nave not experienced a profitable month so far in 1973. The exchange's members incurred total losses of million in this year's first half, including an estimated million in the second quarter. In May, tbs latest month for which exact figures are available, 57 per cent of the exchange's member firms op- erated in the red. The number of big board firms at midyear totalled 543, the fewest since 540 at the end of 1943, during World War H. The number of employees in the exchange community is believed to have fallen by ooo to so far this year, although no firm estimate is available. If losses continue at the rate experienced in this year's first half, the securities indus- try's cumulative deficit in the next four years will surpass its total present capital of billion. The common stock of all 16 publicly owned investment firms in the industry are sell- nig at less than the asset val- ues of the firms themselves, ef- fectively closing the door to any further public financing tor securities concerns for the present. Other developments, less easily quantified, toom just as importantly. For example, nc one knows how many talented people have been lost to other industries, not to mention how many capable people will nev- er even consider working in WaU Street.
