    Warren Buffett Is Just Daring You To Drive Down The Price Of BRK/A

    Every year starting in around late December and continuing until around this time, I found myself at the end of each day hoping that the S&P had gone down. Rooting against GS, of course, made obvious sense, but I was also keenly aware that I was soon going to be buying a whole lot – […]
