The Wolf of Wall Street for finance,sales,marketing
Hey, uh, I'm looking for Investor's Center.
What's that? You want to invest? No.
I'm looking for Investor's Center.
Yeah, yeah, that's us.
Yeah, yeah, that's us.
We spoke on the phone.
I'm Jordan Belfort.
I'm the broker from Rothschild in New York.
Have a seat.
We spoke on the phone earlier, right?Two hours ago.
They're up and comers.
That's what that means.
It's 3 cents a share, that's $3!You cheap f**k! So where are your Quotrons here?Quotrons?- Yeah.
We don't even need computers here.
We just trade right off the pink sheets here.
– Yeah, they're penny stocks.
You know, uh, companies that can't get listed on NASDAQ.
they don't have enough capital?Their shares trade here.
Penny stocks?- Yeah.
This one, uh, Aerodyne,is a really interesting.
Very hot stock right now.
Oh, yeah?They're just a couple of brothers that are making radar detectors out of their garage.
They're out in Dubuque.
Maybe it's microwaves.
I'm not sure.
But you call the company's main line,their mom, Dorothy, answersand she is so sweet.
I don't know anything else about them other than that.
Six cents a share?Hey, come on.
Who buys this crap? Well, I mean.
Honestly, mostly schmucks.
Postmen, there's always postmen.
They see our ads in the back of, uh, Hustler and Popular Mechanics.
Our ads actually say they can get rich quick.
Hustler?You know, those girlie magazines.
We're helping them finance houses,we're helping them buy their wife a diamond ring.
A boat maybe.
Is this stuff regulated or are you guys.
What are you doing here? Uh.
Jesus Christ,the spread on these is huge.
And that's the point, that's.
What's your name again?Mine.
Jordan, what do you get on that blue chip stock?I make one percent.
Or I did make one percent.
Pink sheets, it's 50.
It's 50%? 50% commission for what? It's our markup for our services.
And so if I sell a stock at $10,000,my commission is 5,000 bucks? if you sell 10,000 on with this stock Iwill personally give you a blowjob And I hope it happens.
Hello, John,how are you doing today?You mailed in my company a postcard a few weeks back postcard a few weeks back requestinginformation on Penny Stocks that had huge upside potential with very little downside risk.
Does that ring a bell?- Yeah, I may have sent something.
is something just came across my guest.
The reason for the call today, John, is, It is perhaps the best thing, I've seen in the last six months.
If you have 60 seconds, I'd like to share the idea with you.
You got a minute? The name of the company,Aerotyne International.
It is a cutting edge high-tech firm out of the Midwest awaiting imminent patent approval on the next generation of radar detectors that have both huge military and civilian applications now.
Right now, John,the stock trades over-the-counter at 10 cents a share.
And by the way, John,our analysts indicate it could go a heck of a lot higher than that.
Your profit on a mere $6,000 investment would be upwards of $60,000! Jesus! That's my mortgage, man.
You could pay off your mortgage.
This stock will pay off my house? John, one thing I can promise you, even in this market,is thatI never ask my clients to judge me on my winners.
I ask them to judge me on my losersbecause I have so few.
And in the case of Aerotyne,based on every technical factor out there, John, we are looking at a grand slam home run.
Okay, let's do it.
I'll do 4 grand.
$4,000? That'd be 40,000 shares, John.
Let me lock in that trade right now and get back to you with my secretary with an exact confirmation.
Sound good, John? Yeah, sounds good.
Thank you for your vote of confidence and welcome to the Investor's Center.
Bye-Bye How'd you f*#king do that? Just like that, I made 2 grand.
The other guys looked at me like I'd just discovered fire.
Great! Even better!I was selling garbage to garbage men and making cash hand over fist.
The only problem you're gonna have is that you didn't buy more.
So I was selling them shit.
But the way I looked at it, their money was better off in my pocket.
I knew how to spend it better.
Sell me the pen.
You want me to sell this pen? That's my boy right there.
Can sell anything.
Why don't you do me a favor,.
Write your name down on that napkin for me.
I don't have a pen.
Supply and demand, my friend.
He's creating urgency.
And with this script,which is now your new harpoon, I'm gonna teach each and every one of you to be Captain f*#king Ahab.
Captain who? Captain Ahab.
From the f*#king.
The book, mot***f**ker.
From the book.
Turn your f*#king brain on.
We're a new company with a new name.
A company that our clients can believe in.
A company that our clients can trust.
A firm whose roots are so deeply embedded into Wall Streetthat our very founders sailed over on the Mayflower and chiseled the name Stratton Oakmont right into Plymouth fucking Rock! You got it? What we're gonna do is this.
First we pitch 'em Disney, AT&T, IBM,blue chip stocks exclusively.
Companies these people know.
Once we've suckered them in, we unload the dog shit.
The pink sheets, the penny stocks, where we make the money.
50% commission, baby.
Now the key to making money in a situation like this is to position yourself now before the settlement.
Because by the time you read about itin The Wall Street Journal, it's already too late.
Then you wait.
And whoever speaks first loses.
I appreciate the call.
I really have to give this some thought.
Can I call you back? They don't know, right?They gotta think about it, they gotta talk to their f**king wives,or the f**king Tooth Fairy.
Point is, it doesn't matter what the fuck they say.
The only real objection that they have isthat they don't trust you guys.
And why should they trust you? I mean, look at you.
You're a bunch of fucking sleazy salesmen, right? So, what do you say? You mean to tell me that if I put you in at Union Carbide at 7 and took you out at 32.
Texas Instruments at 11 and took you out at 47.
Steel at 16, took you out at 41.
You wouldn't be saying to me right now, "Chester, pick me up a few thousand shares of Disneyon the spot, right now.

I do wanna say that you sound like a.
You sound like a pretty sincere guy.
It's not gonna make you richand it's not gonna make you poor.
But what this trade will do is serve asa benchmarkfor future business, Kevin.
