My Takeaways and Observations

All Apple (AAPL) this morning. Here, here and here.  Re-shorted Amazon (AMZN) at $619-$620 yesterday (a good thing) and I'm trying to short more.  Peak Hedge Funds -- more evidence.  The man, the legend: Tattoo!  Tell Me Something I Don't Know.  Dan...

Berkshire's Many Headwinds

I've been looking this morning at Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) and CEO's Warren Buffett's annual letter to shareholders, which came out over the weekend. I'm short on BRK.B, and this year's letter only reinforced the headwinds that I've previou...
