Early life

Blodget was born and raised on Manhattan's Upper East Side, the son of a commercial banker He attended Phillips Exeter Academy and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Yale University, where he was a member of The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus After college, he taught English in Japan, then moved to San Francisco to try to be a writer while supporting himself by giving tennis lessons He was also a freelance journalist and a proofreader for Harper's Magazine

In 1994, Blodget joined the corporate finance training program at Prudential Securities, and, two years later, moved to Oppenheimer & Co in equity research In October 1998 he predicted that Amazon, then trading at $240, would trade for $400 within a year This was thought highly unlikely by many traders at the time; however, just three weeks later Amazon's stock passed that mark a gain of 128%

This call received significant media attention Two months later, he accepted a position at Merrill Lynch, and frequently appeared on CNBC and other similar shows In early 2000, days before the dot-com bubble burst, Blodget personally invested $700,000 in tech stocks, only to lose most of it in the years that followed In 2001, he accepted a buyout offer from Merrill Lynch and left the firm
