tom, at some point in life it isn't about making the last buck ! If buffett isn't at that point yet, shame on him. I'd rather read about a deal buffett is promoting that creates jobs in americon and helps the bottom 50 %. And if BV drops 10 cents as a result of that effort i'm ok with that. Buffett and his partners US owe team Obama and his fed contacts huge bro, huge. This could have ended very badly bro, don't forget buffett SOLD billions of index puts at the highs UNHEDGED with the VIX at record lows BEFORE THE CRASH !! HE and WE got very lucky bro, just a few facts in case buffett feels an urge to give a little back via brkb.
and the system. ucmtsu, no way.
u miss the point, as usual. Y does anyone who questions THY LEADER in expertsville get bashed ,dogged and run off the madrassa ? obviously buffett thought Tesco was a better value than buying brkb all those years ago , a huge mistake ? A little due dili on fresh and easy would have made a sell here very simple. graceful,hc, aka, the profit !
effort in NEV. The stores were pitiful , I suggested a billion dollar write off was coming and that Tesco's management had to be questioned for thinking that concept could compete in America. Of course I received private emails from experts in foolsville cussing me out and asking me to stop posting among the experts or they would have me removed. Those experts may be wrong, again. go figure ?
I would much rather see buffett buddy up with einhorn, ackman, and Icahn type investors but at the end of the day, none of them help to improve the lives of the other 50 % or so who don't have much exposure to the stock markets. buffett could do so much, he's just blind to many real world situations, he's like in a bubble, its very odd ??
btw, I cut out diet soda too. When I started this new diet I figured if I lost 10 pounds without ever being hungry I would be a very happy camper, I can't believe how easy it came off. I ate stoooopid for 50 years, go figure ? Who knows how much better my knees and ankles would be if I never added the weight ? The entire country should do this, the health care savings would be massive ! Its too bad , Michelle Obama is the perfect person to make this happen in the lower income communities as well. I still eat out at least once a day, the food choices some people make are suicidal ! good luck bro, let us know when you lose 5 % of your body.
++ eating a low carb diet and riding an exercise bicycle ++
funny you mention that. 3 months ago I cut my carbs, bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes, and doubled my fruits, nuts, veges, etc on my own. I still eat all the steak, chicken, and fish I want., I went from 200 to 180 , my high school basketball weight was 175, so I wasn't huge to begin with. i'm 65, still play tennis 4 xs a week, jog 4 miles 4 xs a week listen to your doc bro, your knees, ankles, and heart will appreciate it !! PLUS, you'll be able to play with the grandkids ! good luck let us know when you model speedos for all the idiot experts in brkville ! they may take my pictures off their walls !
have you read this guy or followed him ? in the interview he talks about buffets , hard money investing, rails and energy. He raises many interesting issues .
call me bro, i'll make time to chat with you, your favorite partner, hc. btw, if you here buying a gaming joint or a joint in Pahrump, i'm going all in brkb !! enjoy our town !
++ Obama's presidency has been nothing but atrocious.++
beachbro, as u well know buffett keeps score by growth in BV and IV, hence, Obama is the greatest pres of ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL TIMES ! The greatest transfer of wealth from the lower and middle to the top 5 % of ALLLLLLLLLLLLL XS during the past 6 years ! Buffett owes team Obama, big time, 8 more years !!
morning beachbro, buffett and us partners have scored huge under team Obama , he made a simple request, buffett went p p on his leg soon thereafter. It was in poor taste imo, and poorly timed, we don't need that investment that badly. Lets see how it plays out. He could have gone on cnbc yesterday but instead i'm guessing he made the call to Sorkin ?
and look at the headline news stories today in print. net after tax we earn less than 200 million a year for all this heat and bad press ? All those sweetheart deals we got the past 6 years Y upset the white house and dems now ? Is buffett giving the dems an issue they can run on ? Will the gop work to help shut this inversion loophole down ? buffett cant be this sloppy, he may be one or two moves ahead of the average bridge player ? what's his game here ?
9 % coupon is a cheap protection tax, seems to me ? Y does buffett need to go there for a puny 300 million - 35 % tax ? silly at this point in his life.
Warren Buffett to Invest in Burger King's Planned Deal for Tim Hortons, wall st j.
buffett getting hammered on morning joe by all guests both parties.
seems to me its a very high cost to pay for brk to earn 300 million or so in interest a year ? Lets see what rate brk earns and we can all decide if 3 g is paying, protection money, to have uncle warren bless these 3 G deals ?? Sorkin is arguing its structured to get Canadian Approval not an inversion. It wouldn't shock me IF Sorkin has already received the call, from Omaha ? Lets see if buffett comes on to make the case ?
