My bank account loves “fk you” money

Well my UAL holding is toast... 🤬


Long term I think you’ll be fine

Seemed to me that it’s clear he and BH leadership don’t have near term confidence in a market turnaround.


He did also to always bet on America and that the reason he’s holding that much cash is because he’s preparing for a worst case scenario that most other people wouldn’t and that the amount of cash he’s sitting on is small comparatively.

My SPXU holding should be richer


What about it? Some will likely take his words about there being nothing worth buying too far. WB likes to take positions when the company has very few (or mltn no) other options. The fed has effectively become the lender of last resort, which weakens WB’s playbook and options.

JPow is going Brrr on Monday to keep market up. All these doesn’t matter.

I made limited EQ partner in 2019 . This week I was told I’m getting moved to counsel effective Jan 1. My hours were negatively impacted in 2019 by an ill parent (only child) and in 2020 multiple clients said pencils down for half the year (& additional family illness & a death), + kids. I know nothing about the counsel role. What terms/arrangements have people negotiated? I don’t know what negotiation ability I’ll have, but wanted to be better informed.
