Emphasis on 'wealth.'
Could be the twelfth up day in a row for the DJIA -- a rare accomplishment over history. I did minimal trading. Two potential catalysts - tomorrow night's presidential speech and Friday's Yellen appearance. Here's a quick review of today's market action : THE GOOD * Banks continue to be the league leaders. * Biotech rebounded (especially of a speculative-kind). * Retail continues Friday's better tone. * Apple
It seems that Warren is coronating Ajit Jain as his successor. "...Since then, Ajit has created tens of billions of value for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. If there were ever to be another Ajit and you could swap me for him, don't hesitate. Make the Trade!" Berkshire's float is now over $100 billion. He continues to endorse the benefit of lo- cost passive funds. And this year he vividly produces the calculus. And he pays homage to Vanguard's Jack Bogle ("a hero") Warren goes out of his way to emphasize the value of Bank of America (BAC) . He has made over $5 billion on the name. A nice hat tip to the deceased Bill Ruane. (And some continued criticism regarding Sequoia's Valeant (VRX) investment).

He re-emphasizes that widespread fear is the investors' enemy, but doesn't mention the risks when investors are too greedy. I wanted to make two additional points: In my 2013 appearance at Berkshire's annual meeting and in my follow-up commentary I have been critical about Berkshire's benchmarks, specifically noting that comparing Berkshire's change in book value versus the performance of the S&P Index was an apples-to-oranges comparison and failed to incorporate the lessening impact of insurance and the company's acquisition of private entities. Several years later Berkshi
