    "Can someone take that piece of paper with a large number on it and do anything practical with it?"

    Of course, BRKA is imho more trustworthy than Federal Reserve Note.

    From 1995 to 1999, oil price dropped from 20 to 10, XOM gained 150%.

  • Is Doctor Copper Telling Us Something? [View article]
    Dr Copper is telling us:

    1. China is changing its growth mix

    2. Crashing commodity prices mean lower inflation in most developed countries and more room for central banks to print money

    3. When copper fell 60% from 1982 to 1987, S&P went up 3 times; copper fell again 50% from 1995 to 1999, S&P went up 4 times.

  • Jobless Claims falls 8K to 287K [View news story]
    After the crash of 1987, there were a bunch people shorting the market, hoping for a crash all the time.

    They finally capitulated in 1999 and went over the cliff with the tech bubble.

    They were utterly wiped out.

    We can a emergence of the same type of people such as mdirt and Matthew Davis.

  • IBM And Intel: The End Game For IBM Semiconductor [View article]
    IBM semiconductor has a terrible reputation in the industry.

    Anyone who partners with it gets roughed up badly in the end. Past victims include Motorola, HP, AMD, Rambus, and etc...

    BTW, it's losing lots of money too.
