....well I gotta tell you that nobody was more excited than me over the GenRe deal....I really thought WEB was taking his game to the next level.....now, he's starting to remind me of the poker player who folds every hand unless it's a royal straight flush on the deal......if he doesn't start trying harder, I'll be reducing my position......the beat goes on....
In this room, full of WEB lemmings, comments like yours will bring the wrath of the great unwashed idiots down upon you. They will enlighten you with meaningless discussions of BRK's former success. You will get chided for your short term thinking, and lectured on how great WEB is, and the intrinsic value of his bloated pig company, and on and on. BRK is static and the faithful refuse to acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, there are better investments available. Actually, I think they are constipated and afraid to make a move, so they sit, hoping for a return of the glory days. I love your analogy of WEB (the poker game). Seems true. Take a look at NXCD.
Hey there, neighbor. I saw your post and just wanted to say, 'I bought some NXCD today myself.' But it's more of a speculation than an investment for me. Obviously, there's not as much public information on NXCD as on BRKA...so seems fair to say there's more of a leap of faith involved when plunking down the hard-earned on a new concept, or company like the one you're recommending...more of a leap than buying a few shares of the 'B'. So what high techs are you owning or wanting to own? Myself, I think IBM and T are both worth a look. Have to wander out on the limb a bit to buy BVSN, but i like a future prospect that hasn't ever split, for starters. But to be honest, I don't know that much about the stock or the tech sector. Which is why i'm concentrating on Berkshire. Since I'm not all that stock savvy, I'm hoping Buffett is. (There's a definite leap of faith involved here too!) This stock shows it can win over time. I don't need the golden egg today. But it would be nice to have it there for those important future occasions. So while I'm willing to take a chance to some extent on MSFT,TXN,or maybe SFE, I'd rather leave the investing to someone who time shows knows how to deliver. But like I said, some leaping around with hope and thoughtful abandon looking for the motherlode ain't such a bad idea, from time to time. Post on!!
ok, I took a look at NXCD. And what? It went up 20% like something. Aren't you supposed to tell us before it jumped? Are you coming here for parental approval? What is your problem man? You didn't get attention from your ex-con father and your alcoholic ho mama when you were kid? If you don't own BRK that is fine, but shut your sphincter mouth up unless you can support what you say.
