    If you wanted dividend from holding BRK.B - just release 5% worth of it every year and let the remaining 95% of the holding generate enough to cover the 5% and more. So in a 20% performance year, you'll end up with 5% dividend and 15% unrealised cap gain.

    Rough maths but you know what i mean.

    Thanks 6925451, D/Mantra,

    To each their own i guess. Each time I think i understand investing, Mr Market tells me i'm just a fool. So I won't profess to tell anyone what's the best way to invest.

    For me though - I don't really see the "no dividend" argument against Buffett and BRK.B if they were providing returns higher than what I could have with the cash received from dividends. Moreover, dividends are paid AFTER 30% tax (for overseas investors) - that's a HUGE disadvantageous and adds to the pressure of % returns from the remaining 70%.

    Dividend Mantra - thanks for the links. Will read them.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing.

    Dividend Mantra - i dont mean this in a condescending way. Genuinely wanting to know from your point of view if there's any added benefit of recreating a Buffett portfolio (instead of just buying BRK.B as Colorado Boy said).

  • Berkshire Hathaway: The Buy For When You Get An Itchy Trigger Finger [View article]
    Me too. I have every intention to land at 25% of the whole pot in BRK. But i'm currently only at 10% due to my buy-and-top-up strategy. It sounds crazy to you i'm sure but it feels like a real dilemma in my head if i should (A) top up the 15% now or (B) "wait for the next dip - its coming its coming!"

    jhefferon. It takes a lot of courage and conviction to keep hanging on when the market says sell sell sell and 50% of value lost in 2 months. All the best.

  • Disney - A Joy Ride For Investors [View article]
    I know. Exactly my feeling. I have only 33% of intended final position invested and had been waiting for 6 months for that $60 level to put in more. It doesn't look likely now to return to that level. But if i capitulate now, I will likely be the greater fool.

    Best thing to do now is to look elsewhere and come back on an off-quarter.

  • QNX Will Not Save BlackBerry [View article]
    I agree with Redrut.

    Kofi, from a neutral reader point of view, it will actually be interesting if the authors (yourself in this case) would respond to a few of the well-thought through comments from other readers with opposing opinions. It is helpful for the others to shape an opinion about the strength of arguments, whichever way.

  • Facebook, LinkedIn, And Twitter - Numbers Don't Lie, Check The Scoreboard [View article]
    OK. I think we're talking about 2 different things here. I haven't been monitoring TWTR so I'm just going to ask if 22643611 meant that (1) TWTR user growth has been declining as in from +20% to +10% QoQ or does he actually mean -10% QoQ?

    The former is less concerning and could be seasonal although the latter is more concerning.

  • 4 Reasons Why Investors Should Sell Out Of Alcoa Shares Now [View article]
    In the macro sense, no. At the individual level, it may be enough to tip an investor into a decision, especially one newer in the game.

    Yeah, I don't get Tesla.

    Honestly speaking, there's more than a few occassion that I was very tempted to ride that wave but too bad my credo of not dumping money where I don't understand didn't allow me to.

    Thorsten Heins is also German. :)

    That was me being deliberately provocative. But honestly, I had a lot of faith in him in his initial period as the Blackberry CEO. In this case, however, he didn't get the Board support nor the kind of team who can rally the cause. Shame.

    It's a very good point. I would like to see Seekingalpha introducing a weighted rating system where authors are ranked by reader/investors. And to be fair to authors, the system should be weighted so senior members have a stronger vote and newer member votes count for less initially. How 'bout that?
