If you're a young person, with not much money, and most of your working life ahead of you - your bigger risk is NOT engaging.
The only issue is how aggressive you choose to be.

The Donald and his administration are quite the handicap, and getting worse, rapidly.
But handily, Corona hits the elderly hardest. mortality is quite high, and the Donald is 78. This is also an election year, so he's going to have to press a lot of flesh, if he wants to be elected. And every time, a new roll of the dice! ... so what are the odds that over 9 months+ of this, at least one of the rolls results in a contraction  ;)

If you can lower the handicap, don't you get a better result?
Vice ...... have we got a job for you!!!

I don't want to sell cause I really, really like my portfolio right now. But if we have another day like today one can dump another 10% of net worth into BRK and call it a day. You can make good money, be lazy and not give a fuck.

You think BRK will outperform SP500 from here? Or from 10% down from here?



@OP: There's gonna be a ball before Fairfax annual meeting. Unless Sanjeev cancels it and tells you that value investors don't have balls.  ::)

Don't worry about beating the S&P or BRK-A.  Just focus on your own internal score card.

My own internal score card is beating S&P.


And cruashing value investors balls.

With the cash horde that Warren has to deploy I think BRK will do better than the S&P.

Here's something for your balls to think about, you do realize that BRK's CEO is within the most vulnerable age group to the virus?

Lol from crushing balls to thinking balls, may the best balls win.
