My goodness, some of tehse "financials" sure are doing poorly. Is there some way to check whether any ofmy stocks are financials? Like on Google or something?
I have a bunch of ITIC, I sure hoep it is not finanancial!
We have certainly done better with our ITIC shares than have the shareholders of some other "financials." If you already have a "bunch" of ITIC, my free-and-worth-every-penny-you-pay-for-it advice would be not to sell and to buy more if you can get it for $36~~37.
I bought some more ANAT at $90.01 today. Don't tell pmlljl!
I had my eyes wide shut when I read your e-mail, so I didn't see that you bought ANAT today.
I sold some BRKB today at $4100. Is it a poorly performing "financial"?
Now I only have one order in. That is to buy WSC at $356. WSC bought Aaron Rentals corporate rent to rent business for $72,000,000.
I am still waiting to buy ITIC, ORI and ANAT.
My position in BP is now down $15 and the stock now yields about 6.5%. Are the oil companies "financials"?
I expect that you and the bear will take a trip to Galveston to shop for a nice beach front cottage. There may be a low priced one bobbing in the surf.
As a ground floor tenant in a three story apartment building, I am only mildy afraid of roof collapse from a blizzard in southern California in summertime. However, I really admire your out of the box thinking. Actually, I was so impressed that I forwarded your message to the vice president of human resources at American International Group with my strongest recommendation that they recruit you to be their strategist for new insurance coverages. I am sure that with you forming creative new insurance opportunities, they will be able to repay the feds the $85,000,000,000 in no time. In fact, I am so sure that this will work that I just put in a market order to buy 1000000000000000000000000000 shares of AIG tomorrow morning. Please don't let me down. I am counting on you.
The bear has some ideas, too. Do you ever worry about marauding flocks of penguins invading your home and destroying your stuff? How about asteroid strikes?
We'll also be offering a policy that pays off the mortgage of a homeowner abducted by aliens, although this could create moral hazard, tempting homeowners struggling with mortgage payments to leave their skylights unlocked.
Can I get hurricane protection caused by excessive hot air from congress? I think that is the most certain threat these days. May Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and Nancy Pelosi be promoted to dog catchers.
I would like to sign you up as my insurance agent in order to cover me with all the exotic coverages you can dream up.
I have an extreme phobia of being attacked and ravaged by cooties among other things. Can you help me?
As always, cost is no object when it comes to my contentedness and well being. I look forward to you thoughtful proposals and I will be happy to convert my trading gains in BRKB and CEG in to Benjamins to pay your gargantuan but yet reasonable fees.
Sounds good--just remember how to prepare your deposits to us:
"pj" written on each Benjamin (so that those who find them will know what they are for)
no deposits on windy days (unless you want to have a chasing and handling fee of 1% for each mph by which the avg wind speed for the day exceeds 10 mph deducted from your deposit)
dump off SOUTH side of Hwy. 95 bridge between Casino Center and LV Blvd exits downtown (one of our competitors takes deposits on the north side) when you hear the bear roar from beneath the bridge
BTW as the new mgmt of ANAT we may be offering travel hurricane insurance that pays back visitors whose cars are blown off downtown LV highway bridges by hurricane force winds while tossing Benjamins from the window--a risk no sane person would want to bear.
