Re: Is the market overvalued

If a roulette table pays 2.1 to 1 for red and 1.9 to 1 for black, it tells me nothing about which one will win the next roll.

Re: Just for fun - a sighting

Coincidentally, I was in Omaha last weekend and I invited WEB out for some ice cream.

What does that mean? Is WEB your good friend? Who are you??

Re: Where to put $10,000?

If I had $10,000 I wanted to invest in stocks, and asked your advice, what advice would you give me?

Re: OT: Merril Lynch account?

Re: OT: Merril Lynch account?

One last post, then I promise to go back into lurking mode.

Re: OT: Merril Lynch account?

Of course, don't take my advice. I just invested $100,000 in a stock recommended to me by a total stranger I never met who lives in some tiny little country on another continent. Apparently the streets are so terrible there, you can't even drive a [more]

Re: OT: Merril Lynch account?

I think it is just as important for a money manager to own every single investment himself as he recommends to his clients, and in the same proportion. That way, if I go broke and lose all my money, at least I get the satisfaction of knowing the [more]

Re: BOOKS that you want to recommend.
