  • Banks Trip Up Apple Pay Launch [View article]
    Any banks found lacking secure procedures should be left by any customer who expects financial institutions to protect their accounts. Sloppy banks? That should be an oxymoron—bank security is supposed to be the best there is.

    Other than some on-line purchases, I do not do financial transactions on the Internet. Whenever possible on those purchases, I do not make an account or store my credit card number.

    And even reverse the effects—good exercise helps cut obesity.

    I have sometimes done this in reverse; bought stock because I believed that the product was good, checked and found the company reasonably well run. Certainly it makes sense to buy the products of a company whose stock you own, as to patronize the competitor would be going against one’s own financial interest. I certainly do not make a fetish of it, but all things being equal, I would rather buy from one of my own investments.

    Are there truly that many Berkshire stockholders, other than at the Woodstock for Wall Street in Omaha each year? And how many fly home in their own NetJet?

    market value is by definition not “accurate”, but a compilation of what many people/institutions think/will pay

    And Exxon and Mobil rejoined to become one of the biggest companies in the world. (totally unrelated trivia)

    No, it is not—but at age 84 and in apparent good health, he has seemingly dodged that bullet (knock on digital wood). Hopefully, the 6-a-day habit did not last all that long. Wishing him many more years of tap-dancing to work!

    One wonders, if GAAP is so far from reality, whether it is such a great standard—at least for us everyday folks, the nonprofessionals. Another advantage to the insiders?

    Well, I held on, and the price continues to rise, so my pessimism was apparently off base. How different is the company? Not sure, but doing well!

  • McDonald's Obsession With Starbucks [View article]
    I do not see Starbucks as a competitor to McDonalds—Wendy’s, Burger King, yes, but they are not espresso/coffee choices, primarily.

    controversial, not immoral
    but with shareholders that probably agree with both of us, there is no reason for them to do so
