  • Warren Buffett And Losing Billions Of Dollars [View article]
    Probably not. But a tax credit to be offset against future gains. That's how IRS and ATO think. Once your cash is in their pocket, you'll never see them again.

    2Reb - Funny you should say that. I've been thinking about the concept of Unrealised CGT for a few years now and every year, I'm silently grateful it hasn't degenerated (yeah I dislike taxes) to that.

    Imagine the administrative nightmare too for everyone!

    Nothing wrong being young and simple. Its a stage of development. We've all been there.

    We need more comments like that from Yachtsman to fast-track the learning of skeptical reading... God knows I've learnt my trade the hard way starting out as a wide-eyed gullible boy :)

  • Alcoa: Enough Selling Already [View article]
    Even if worldwide black swan occurs, don't panic... borrow, steal and add more!

    Disclamer: Words were used liberally and figuratively above. I do not condone crime in any form. I am a law-abiding investor. :P

    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!"

  • Organovo's Bioprinting More Than A 'Stupid Exercise' [View article]
    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.
