Re: Buffett votes "abstain"...

One needs to understand there is a process here in very large companies.

Re: United Health snivels about competition

UNH is a very well managed company and has been a superb investment. They are required to update shareholders on new developments. One does see irrational competition in various insurance markets from time to time. Companies with underwriting [more]

Re: Ackman rides again!

I just know they have paid more than some large pharma would pay on a couple of these major deals. I have seen it all before, usually ends badly.

Re: Ackman rides again!

I know that Valeant is outbidding major pharma companies on some of these deals. That would make me nervous if I was a Valeant shareholder. Overpaying is a cardinal sin. Allergan does appear to be a good property, but at what price?

As I usually do I dropped in on Friday to watch a round of the Philadelphia Open, now the biggest tournament of the year here. The stock market is closed so chess takes its place.

Re: Thoughts on Under Armour (UA)

Re: Good News on Keystone XL

"You know, like every single one of them."
