Weekly Media Pin – Grantham on Graham

Time for the weekly finance media pin.  Sorry that I have not been active posting lately, but I told you I might be falling into the web of WEB, and I have done just that.  But I’ve also been consuming podcasts, videos, newspaper articles, and other finance related media.

Weekly Media Pin & a Coty Update

I am going to tweak the podcast of the week series to focus more generally on finance media (I’ve actually already included videos and other media in the posts anyway).  I will mostly focus on podcasts, but this way I can highlight articles and other stuff in case all the pods are mediocre that week.  This week, I found a new podcast.

Resource Roundup: CNBC Buffett Archive

I might be going dark for a while as I fall into the rabbit hole of the CNBC Buffett Archive.  Before I disappear into the nebula of Berkshire Hathaway enlightenment, I wanted to flag it for your attention as it is really a neat resource. Continue reading “Resource Roundup: CNBC Buffett Archive”

Merger Monday Comes to my Portfolio

Turned on Bloomberg radio this morning to some decent news.  Gramercy Property Trust (“GPT”) caught a takeover bid from BlackRock at $27.50 per unit.  As I mentioned before, I recently took a position in GPT.  Also, there was a development late last week that might have yielded some additional “tea leaves” concerning Conagra (“CAG”) and Pinnacle Foods (“PF”).

Berkshire Annual Meeting – Musk Nervous Breakdown Edition

The Berkshire Annual Meeting was on Cinco de Mayo.  If you were too busy with Margaritas and/or Mint Juleps, you can watch the recording here.  Yahoo will also slice and dice it into audio only podcasts here (it is also available through other apps and has 2017 up right now).

I’m sure the meeting will be more ably dissected elsewhere.   I did, however, want to quickly make a few observations and stick a pin in a company/industry to look at more closely in the future.

You knew that title was coming, didn’t you?  It’s time for me to highlight another interesting podcast.  [I wanted to get this out, so I can follow my usual tradition of posting at around 5:00 p.m. on Friday night.  That’s a good technique, right?]

The Berkshire Hathaway Annual meeting is this weekend (if you’re unable to attend, Yahoo Finance will be streaming the festivities).  So I thought we would look at some interviews related to the author of a book being featured in the Bookworm this year. Continue reading “Pod-tastic!”

I’m just saving…April 2018

It is time once again, dear reader, for the discussion of my private financial laundry.  I hope maintaining a journal of my savings will help provide additional motivation and allow me to spot trends.  If you are more interested in investing topics, feel free to move along, as I won’t be discussing my new, huge, Disney/Netflix merger arbitrage position in this post. Continue reading “I’m just saving…April 2018”

The Telsa Tithe

Brothers and sisters, residents of the planet Earth, I come before you today with a convenient rationalization for something you already want to do.  I come to propose to you a way for you to give capital to Elon Musk to fuel his fires of innovation and salvation of the planet and the species, and yes…to build and sell cool shit.
