so i asked, like Monday, this week, or Friday after the close, this week, she didn't know. gotta love the, level playing field. I should have paid someone to attend as my proxy last week , lesson learned.
but the action in the stock continues to indicate someone thinks a buyback is coming, soon. shameful lack of disclosure !
those of us who don't. I asked them to call me back with the results OR to disclose the results asap. Lets see what happens ??
ok, becky forgot to drill down on gates and his opinion on ibm, i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure she has no idea what gates said about ibm. another year another waste of time in general.
the three amigos oppose a higher min wage because it would drive up prices , reduce employed, etc. lol, does higher pay for total failures like ginny and friends , drive up prices and cause layoffs ? If you freeze the pay for the top 5 % for 3 years can you increase wages for the bottom 50 % without, raising prices and laying people off ? shame on the 3 of them. these 3 men being interviewed by becky, beautiful. what next, will becky go 10 rounds with mayweather ? what a contry !!
gates is coming on soon, wouldn't it be cool to ask gates to make the bearish case to buffett live in real time , ibm? ask gates if HE would have bought brk over ibm in 2011 ?? This MAY offer value yet, stay tuned. Buffett talks about how dumb it is to overpay for your stock, really ?? I guess we'll know in a few years if ibm was, dumb. We already know buying back brkb in 2011 wasn't, dumb. IF, IF
this fool never calls in sick when he should !! joe the joker why not ask buffett,
how certain are you that IBM is paying a , good price for its stock ?
WHY is cnbc spending an hour promoting IBM, when it should be promoting, BRK ?
WHY was ibm a compelling buy over brkb in sept 2011 ?
Do you have any idea what GATES thinks of IBM and its stock ?
I think buffett is saying ibm's management exercised over 250 MILION options over the years while reducing the issued and outstanding below a billion, and that currently very few options are outstanding. IF joe had taken finance 101 twice wouldn't he drill down on that issue ? a critical issue like that and joe just moves on, truly pathetic.
++ Berkshires locked into the amex stake because of the tax consequence of selling ++
sean, why repeat silly brkville nonsense ? would it have made sense to sell axp to buy brkb 3 year ago ? two years ago ? I year ago ? penny wise, pound foolish.
the fight was terrible compounded by Manny thinking he won without hitting the other guy !! the clippers game was great but ruined by terrible refs which is as expected as mayweather not get hit in another boring fight.
bro, im looking forward to the spurs- clippers game, that will blow away the fight, imo. can manny knock him out ? I doubt it. can many win a decision in vegas ? I doubt it. I expect a boring decision, we'll see.
and go against gate's opinion ?? THIS should be the talk of the weekend. I know brky I know, what would gates know about that space, I know. ucmtsu,no way ??
from the FT piece,
++ Can Mr Gates be credited with getting Mr Buffett over his famous reluctance to invest in technology shares with the IBM investment?
“No, IBM became less of a technology company,” Mr Gates says. “It’s really sad. It turns out, at least so far, Warren was wrong. Even with the enterprise customers, the cloud has not been saleable for them. I’m biased. IBM is a wonderful company but because I competed with them for many, many decades I have to say, I don’t see their future as brightly as people who are long on the stock.”++
this board seems to have calmed down so i'll bring up the subject the experts in foolsville, SHOULD be talking about , which I raised last year at 1.5 xs BV. WHY use brkb over spy if you are an option player ? brkb was fully and fairly priced at 1.5 xs BV as long as buffett is healthy and running brk. The brkb options are illiquid, the spreads are sick, and IF, IF, you use leverage and you use brkb over spy you don't understand the RISK and you shouldn't even be trading options with margin. What happens IF the market finally sells off 10 % AND the VIX spikes to 20 plus ? What if brkb breaks 140 and trades down to 135 in a big sell off and U get a maintenance call or worse ?? What if the puts you sold aka, shorted unhedged at 1.75 when they were 1.25- 1.75 trade to 3.50 bid offered at 5 ?? Then what's your move in a fast market ?? THATS what experts should be asking the guy who has been using monster leverage selling puts into a market that goes up EVERY month ?? scary dude !!
