Jan 18, 2017

george soros is one of the best macro minds of our time, but he's tired and the fact that he's allowed his political beliefs to enter into his investments is despicable. granted, he only runs money for himself, but in recent years, it seems he wants PR moreso than absolute return.

bill gross same thing, a shadow of what he once was at PIMCO, more keen on forecasting than delivering value to investors. nice enough guy I'm sure, but he seems way too sure of himself as of late with mediocre performance at best backing it up.

and musk wouldn't be a billionaire if tesla's investors had any idea about valuation. cars are cool, but meh.

I'm definitely a hater here, the people my generation worships as gods causes the contrarian in me to want to hate them.

that being said, Buffett is who I based most of my investing philosophy on, so I can only dislike him so much

Jan 18, 2017

I suppose. I'll have to disagree with you on this bro. Musk would be a billionaire with the SpaceX valuation alone. Besides, he's the only guy I've seen who takes initiative and goes ahead with developing cool tech (electric cars, reusable rockets, etc.), thus slamming industry convention.

Why do say Buffett's a hypocrite? I've always gotten the sense that he tries way too hard to appear down to earth and as a Wall Street outsider, but never paid enough attention the guy to come to a conclusion on him.

As a rule, I'm suspicious of anyone with notable wealth who tries to appear as just-one-of-the-common-folk.

He is a hypocrite because he talks about rich people needing to pay more taxes but always takes every tax deduction and write down he can. I'm not shitting on the guy for doing that as it is perfectly legal, however don't chastise me for doing what you are doing.

Jan 18, 2017

Well, for one thing, Buffett argues for higher income tax RATES on guys earning a salary of over $250,000 per year knowing full well that Buffett largely doesn't pay income taxes due to the structure of his investments. His kind of garbage is like DiCaprio taking a private jet to 2 global warming events on the same day on opposite coasts. Remember as Andrew Wilkow says, "Socialism is for the people, not the socialist."

Jan 18, 2017

pretty much all of those things said above. the only investment thing that's hypocritical is how he says his estate will be 100% index funds when he's built his business on active management.

the political stuff is what bothers me, I find myself saying: dude, I learned how to read a balance sheet from you and pick stocks, I dgaf what you have to say about fiscal policy, help me pick winners.

I always like how the super rich make a public spectacle (Buffett) out of how they are going to give away their wealth...after they die...

I mean, congrats. Is that supposed to impress me? That you're going to sacrifice your wealth when it no longer benefits you?

Jan 18, 2017

probably more of a jab at families like the Waltons, Mars, SC Johnson, etc., that keep everything tied up in the family

but yeah, I'd much rather people do something like the bill & melinda gates foundation than just say it's going to charity when they're gone. if I was a billionaire, I'd much rather witness my money doing some good, rather than imagine what will happen after I die

In Buffett's case, I think it's acceptable. Clearly the man is a fuckin' legend when it comes to picking up good companies. His wealth is generating so much value under his stewardship. After he's gone? Maybe not so much...

I'm not saying it doesn't make sense. What I'm saying is that publicly announcing his "charity" and soaking up the credit for his "generosity" is as hypocritical as the Pharisees praying publicly in the time of Christ--it's announced and heralded for Buffett's personal glory and prestige, but in reality it costs him nothing. In my book, you don't get credit for being charitable when you're dead.

Jan 18, 2017

Buffett has also been highly critical of derivatives and the people who use them (calling them financial "weapons of mass destruction" on many occasions) despite personally being one of the world's largest sellers of put options.

Jan 18, 2017

Buffett is just an insufferable jackass. He's the probably the kind of guy who you think is pretty cool until you work with him for 6 months or a year and then you realize what a douche he is after pealing back the foil.

I love Elon for trying to advance us as a species. Yeah, Tesla is overvalued, but he made electric cars cool. SpaceX is amazing and SolarCity is leading the way for solar in this country. He's got an innovative mind.

Maria.....ugly as sin.

Regardless, it would have to be self-made billionaire to qualify in my book. Otherwise, every wife/daughter of a billionaire could qualify. I think we're down to Sara Blakely, Tory Burch, and Oprah. All three of those ladies are a 1/1 for me on the binary scale. That being said, I think Tory Burch would have to be my top choice.

Seconded. Maria is so meh.
She's an heiress? Seems like someone would inherit from her, after she died of some STD, or some botched up plastic surgery.

Oprah?

Really?

Also, she's only like halfway to being a billionaire, but for me it'd 100% be Marissa Mayer.

I'd knock the dust off that pussy. Did I mention I generally have low standards? I lower them for billionaire and/or famous chicks. I don't feel I need to for Oprah, she would register as a 1/1 on the binary scale for me, at least when she's on a down swing on weight.

I gotta say, I respect Musk. Don't necessarily believe the valuations on his companies, but hell, he's got vision and doesn't give a sh*t. Who else is trying (relatively successfully) to commercialize space on the same scale? Props.

Jamie Dimon - I cant think of many non-founder executive billionaires. He also became CEO of J.P. Morgan after they acquired Bank One where he was CEO. Not very often the smaller company CEO becomes CEO of the larger combined entity.

Jan 18, 2017

Dimon and Blankfein both have their net worth mainly in stock options. Too volatile, and they barely crossed the 1b mark. Still they are good choices, if you look at the person and not the number.

Ross Perot reminds you of a man? He didn't to people of my generation.

The time frame you are thinking of is some time before now, whenever now actually is. Think of it as t minus 20-50 years. You think that when Ross Perot ran for President was when men were men? You realize this was years after the peak of the popularity of Boy George, right? And decades after disco? And around the height of the AIDS crisis? Also KD Lang was pretty popular, if I'm not mistaken.

Your rose colored glasses are a little out of touch. To be fair, just like they are for most people.

The Koch brothers.

Jan 18, 2017

I'm partisan to the Kochs because of their politics but then I saw David Koch in the documentary "Sour Grapes" I was just like, "Jesus, this guy is a complete fag..." (And I mean "fag" in the 1990's junior high school use of the word i.e. the South Park way).

Jan 18, 2017

It was Bill Koch in Sour Grapes. Although, he's still a boss for having built a multi-billion $ company from the ground up and winning the America's cup, I like him much less than Charles and David. They were the two that built Koch Industries.

Charles and David turned a 20mil private consulting firm into one of the world's largest manufacturing conglomerates. You'd be hard pressed to find a company that has a greater impact on the fulfillment of basic needs of daily life than Koch (Cargill is up there too). On top of that, they've maintained total control and done everything their way. For example, they built the company on essentially anarcho capitalistic/meritocratic principles. Good luck finding that at a bulge bracket. Plus, I think it's hugely admirable that they publicly speak out against government regulation and subsides, although they are huge beneficiaries of them. Finally, any time you can be playing a round of golf while negotiating a $21 billion deal to take a company private (Georgia Pacific) you're a bad ass.

Freddy is an odd duck.
