  • Reading 10Ks

    I spend a lot of time reading 10Ks and 10Qs. I like to read several competitors at the same time. Gives me a better feel for their business models and their strengths and weaknesses. Beats sitting around watching CNBC or Bloomberg or looking at quotes all day or even looking at Seeking Alpha...

    Found this tidbit..

    "Some of our employees may have been motivated to work for us by an expectation that our Class A common stock would be trading at a higher value and may be less motivated by the equity compensation they receive as a result. Competitors may leverage any resulting disappointment as a tool to recruit talented employees."

    "Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas." - Paul Samuelson

  • Classic Example Of Wall Street Herd Mentality

    From Bespoke:

    Below is a chart showing the number of analysts covering Apple on a historical basis since 2000. As shown, back in 2000, just a handful of analysts were covering the stock, but now that number has ballooned to 68!

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
