A Lot Of People Owe Ray Dalio An Apology

Last Friday was the Bridgwater founder’s birthday– did you wish him a happy or even pause to commemorate the moment he came into this world? Or did it go by unnoticed, unremarked? Start thinking now about how you’re going to do better next year. At three-days out, we’ve already missed the window for coming in with a belated phone call or text.

Dalio, who has owned a home in Greenwich, turn[ed] 65 on Friday. The businessman was born Aug. 1, 1949, in Jackson Heights, Queens, N.Y. He began investing at age 12 when he bought shares of Northeast Airlines for $300 and tripled his investment after the airline merged with another company.

    But first you must ask yourself : do I have a right to a birthday.

    He only tripled his money on the Northeast Airlines deal? I have to challenge Ray on that and ask, "If that is all you can do are you sure trading and investing are really for you?"

    I'll apologize to Ray when the timeliness of his notice to offer such congratulations is upgraded from sub-optimal.

    In the movie "Raging Bull" when Lamotta taunts the phrase "You didn't get me down Ray", he was not referring to Ray Dalio. Let's make that perfectly clear. And about the original $300, he got that kicking the ass of a young Chuck Norris.
