"It is what it is" still is a favorite phrase in the NY financial community, especially among stock traders (whoever's left in this age of HFT algos). It's used to end a conversation after complaints from the other side of the dialogue. I'd always heard it was an in-joke among the Jewish population, likening the stock market to G-d ("I am what I am").
