........Sunbeam, if they ever held a Bad Judgement parade, I would be Grand Marshall. I passed on BRK in '79, '84, '88 and '90...........thought it was way too expensive! Finally at the "B" ipo I started buying and managed to catch the dips it seems whenever I bought. What the heck....if I was clairvoyant I would be at Laurel racetrack betting the ponys........the beat goes on......
Well, bobo, for some unknown reason I also have something strange happen to me.
Whenever I buy any stock, it immediately goes down and stays under what I bought it for a while.
Why that happens, I have no idea. It could be either a bias in my observations (that is, I am seeing what is not actually happening) or, more likely, a statistical fluke (like five tails in a row). But maybe it is something else. It happened too often.
Eventually, things worked out OK after I held on for a while, but I am still puzzled.
