The original Forbes magazine article on Belfort (October 14, 1991) was NOT titled "The Wolf of Wall Street", it was titled: "Steaks, Stocks -- What's the Difference?". In fact, Belfort was never known as "The Wolf of Wall Street" during his career. The article's author, Roula Khalaf, did call him a "twisted Robin Hood who takes money from the rich and gives to himself and his merry band of brokers", which he complains about to Teresa. However, Belfort was actually upset not because he was depicted in a bad light, but because Khalaf had exposed the shenanigans of Stratton Oakmont and its use of the "pump and dump" technique.
The film opens with a Stratton Oakmont advertisement hosted by Jordan Belfort. The film title appears only at the ending.
