Fortress Investment Group LLC Research Report

Fortress subsidiary Gagfah SA, the third-biggest owner of German real estate
by market value, was awarded a $1.4 billion loan from Bank of America to
refinance some of its $4.47 billion debt due this year. The funding was used
to pay back the same amount of debt that is set to mature in May. The earlier
loan was used to purchase 38,000 apartments in 2006, and is the first of
several financings set to close during the first half in efforts to optimize
Gagfah's capital structure. Meanwhile, Fortress is set to release its 2012
fourth quarter and full year financial results, as well as its 2012 fourth
quarter dividend on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. The Full Research Report on

BlackRock, Inc. Research Report

BlackRock, the world's largest money manager, has reopened its new investment
in its $24 billion Institutional Euro Liquidity Fund this month after yields
on the safest debt rose. In particular, German three-month notes rose above
zero percent last month for the first time since May as EU policy makers left
rates unchanged. The company placed restrictions on investors putting money in
two euro-dominated finds in July last year after the European Central Bank cut
its deposit rate to nil and yields on the safest government debt tumbled.
However, it is keeping its restrictions on its Euro Government Liquidity Fund
until further notice. Last year, the investment adviser introduced "Investing
in a New World," a program that helps clients invest strategically to spark
healthy returns. The Full Research Report on BlackRock, Inc. - including full

IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. Research Report

IntercontinentalExchange saw its earnings rise 2.1 percent as indicated by its
latest earnings report due to lower expenses, although transactions and
clearing revenue declined. Revenue from its credit default swap trade
execution, processing and clearing business came in at about $36 million -
including $19 million in CDS clearing revenue - which was down 14%.
Transaction and clearing fee revenue totaled $277.1 million, down 3.5%, while
profit is at $129.5 million, or $1.76 a share, compared to $126.8 million, or
$1.73 a share year over year. The company is still lobbying for its proposed
$8.2 billion takeover of NYSE Euronext, a deal which would result to becoming
the world's third-largest exchange operator by market value. Both companies
have been dealing with scrutiny from UK antitrust regulators in recent
exchange deals, and wish to sidestep them by taking its plan straight to the
European Commission in Brussels. The move has also got the attention of
NASDAQ, and is attempting to take market share away from NYSE Euronext. The
