40 more years.
brky, let me splain this to u bro. brk paid ALL of sokols legal bills, millions plus, remember when becky asked buffett my question on this issue ? my guess, as part of the deal sokol got other, benes and he walked and kept his mouth shut, its ok by me. with respect to Icon and what he did with aapl, u are way to CONfused to help so lets move on, this is the brk board bro.
happy holidays brky, I guess buffett never did split the stock, authorize a buyback, raise the buyback limit, start donating in 2006,etc. I'm sure u would agree he ignored me, but I'm the greatest preDICKtor of allll times, no ? let me guess, u don't remember ? say hello to dad for me.
the puts I DIDNT sell yesterday for 2.7 can be sold now for 3.4, but I pass who knows where this stops.
instead this old fool is tweeting disingenuous nonsense again. if he wants aapl to bid 600 for 60 million shs and try to complete the 36 billion authorized and unused why doesn’t he just say that ? IF they can buy it back at some limit then they can authorize another 50 billion, iCON should learn manners from einhorn and take a nap. No doubt he will appear on cnbc later today claiming he goosed the stock to 575, shame on him.
so I looked at gold again, GLD. at 120, I go 5 % out of the $$ like I do with stocks , the 114 put and the 126 calls. the march 22, 2014 put is 2.7. the 120 call is 2.3. VERY puny annual returns relative to the RISK, under 9 % annual return, imo. PLUS, if gold gets put to me at 1140 ish what do I have ? still zero yield as buffett says and what if it goes to 1000, still what's the IV ? with aapl, IF it got put to me at 400, 420, 440, it yields 3 %- 2.5 % and I can sell the 480 calls and earn more. for me, if you want to be long 3-5 % gold, cool, buy it hide it, fondle it etc, but for option plays that I like it still has no use for me relative to the risk.
still with me brother jad ? if I don't give up on uncle warren i'll never give up on you !!
its a perfect day for iCON to suggest to aapls BOD that they cut a deal with China Mobile, very sad.
I don't think I posted this ??
he hasn't heard aapl still has 35 BILLION authorized and not yet used ? shouldn't they use the first 35 billion before he pushes them to authorize another 50 billion which aapl is going to do anyway in q-2 or 3 ? I hope that when buffett loses it there is someone around to put him in assisted living so he can pass with dignity ? Carl, pack it in bro, U have lost it ? disclosure, long aapl, short the calls, very short the puts now far out of the $$$$$$$$$.
other than balt, how many guys have a billion brk ? whats wrong with buying on the nyse, ? buffett is strange in many ways ? did he buy ibm or dva on the nyse ?
'' we will only rarely place bids on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"). ""
sean, THIS, is what im talking about.
dickey, he doesn't have any input on investing float BUT, IF brk guys start bashing the DEMs, they just might send the cops to look into HOW uncle warren got SOOOOOOOOOOOOO lucky and just happened to front run the FED during the crash on EVERY investment, with a 100 %% batting average , with better terms then taxpayers got every time , no ? even ted wiliams swung and missed now and then buffett needs to shut these people down before we get hurt.
they should all follow my lead, 40 more yrs !!
By the way, my original reply was censored."""
I tried to give it a thumbs up, it wouldn't let me, lmfaooooooooooooo. I wonder if missed got locked up, again ?
to make it clear i'm a good boy, 40 more yrs of PIECE and prosperity !!
good luck getting this on.
In 1999, Buffett announced in his shareholder letter than he would consider buying back Berkshire Hathaway shares. He even mentioned a price. Here's what Buffett wrote:
Recently, when the A shares fell below $45,000, we considered making repurchases. We decided, however, to delay buying, if indeed we elect to do any, until shareholders have had the chance to review this report. If we do find that repurchases make sense, we will only rarely place bids on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE").
I'll never own those puppies. ""
buffett doesn't OWN THEM, he's short the index puts !! its hard to teach an old dog new tricks. Selling brk puts BEFORE the authorized buyback was like stealing. so far, selling aapl puts near 400 was almost as easy. I'm looking for my lock in 2014, any put sellers out there, what are you picking for 2014 ? u cant pick tesla, netflex, amazon , twitter, etc, I'm way to old for that !!
morning jad, don't u think its odd that a guy working for buffett would write that piece ? would buffett ever go that far even if he agrees ? what next, will a brk employee write he has no idea why buffett won't buy brk over ibm or xom, or pay a 1 % div ?
