    • >>> If GRNLZ cost $2.50 instead of 12.50 I would be buying them by a truckload. <<<
      Yes! Me too... it's rare to find options that are worth buying.

    • See the comment by WEB's multimillionaire
      gardener(#6593).

      It is hard to feel too concerned about someone with
      $9B in cash
      and $20B in appreciated municipal and
      treasury bonds.

      I am supposed to get excited and
      short BRK tomorrow?

      WEB must be like an
      oversexed President in a sorority house.
      1999-2000 may
      be the best buying opportunity since
      1973-1973.
      BRKA was as low as 45 then. And $30 billion in cash
      and little debt!

      I doubt TRV is going out of
      business either.

      Any recommendations on good
      charities?

      I am getting ready to load up on BRK options for my
      favorite
      charity, the "I Have a Dream" Foundation.

      Could buy
      BRK for 40-50K in the next few months.

      I was
      just working on an $800 million estate, all BRKA
      stock
      acquired in the 60's.

      Got any real news?

    • I think TRV is also vested in LTCM (see TRV message board), and since WEB owns so much TRV, he has an indirect interest in LTCM. Comments, anyone?

    • <<<OEX out of the money puts went up 70%
      today. That is today, Sept 30, 1998 AD in the good old
      USA.

      Don't you wish you had studied your math a lot
      more!>>>

      Well, I wish I knew some kind of math that would let me
      win the next Powerball Jackpot too.

      That
      options lottery is like powerball to be if I do not see
      an underpriced option.

      I mean, you still have
      to prove to me that GRNLZ options are underpriced. I
      think that they are priced about right for someone who
      cannot do a dynamic hedge.

      So far you failed to
      make the proof, instead making cheap shots at Infernal
      Elk.

      But I still have hopes.

      If GRNLZ cost $2.50
      instead of 12.50 I would be buying them by a truckload.
      But at $12.50, I would rather buy more GRN.

    • .... that's what he probably did.
      Good luck to all.

    • You might go back to the sixth grade.

      I
      recommend the Kumon Institute.

      You should look into
      it.

      But there is hope, try reading your Bible!

      Yom
      Kippur today!

      Someone needed to tell you, you
      were profoundly stupid!

      Only in America. What
      would happen to you in China!

    • And it is so easy and cheap with Web Street
      Securities!

      Hey, that almost sounds like an
      advertisement.

      No, that is an endorsement, stupid. There I go
      talking to myself again.

      OEX out of the money puts
      went up 70% today. That is today,
      Sept 30, 1998 AD
      in the good old USA.

      Don't you wish you had
      studied your math a lot more!

      It beats rolling
      pennies all day!

    • Salomon Brothers guy, Merriweather. You got to
      know how to steal if you work at Salomom.

      Too
      smart by a half. Too smooth by three
      quarters!

      People are already picketing Scholes' home in
      Greenwich:

      "If your'e so smart, why are you working with that
      crook Merriweather."

      And we thought Slick Willy
      was bad, he didn't lose a trillion
      dollars! You
      know trillion as in twelve zeroes.

      This is what
      the Check looks
      like:

      $1,000,000,000,000.00

      I once tried to cash a billion dollar check and
      there were a lot of excited clerks at that
      bank.

      Things are getting more like the Persian Gulf emirates
      every day.

    • Charleston is a great town.

      As long as you
      don't make your money here.

      Last in the country
      in education, but the private schools are
      good.
      Maids are cheap here. Real Estate is cheap.

      Not
      as nice as San Diego or Santa Barbara but getting
      better.

      OEX out of the money puts went up 70%
      today!

      Only in America.
