    Buffett dumps $800M worth of Apple stock, invests in biotech and groceries

    Not sure if Warren Buffet buying TSLA is still a thing. Interesting article from February 18, 2020 when AAPL was trading at $324/sh (pre 4:1 split of August 31, 2020 is equal to $81 in today's share price of $118, so writen when AAPL was 40% lower in share price).

    Summary:
    AAPL was 32% of Berkshire Hathaway's overall portfolio @ $72B investment. This was 5.6% of all AAPL shares held. And this was after the attention grabbing headline which detailed a <$1B sale of AAPL.
    Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust own $12.5B of BH, resulting in $1.8B ownership of AAPL through BH.

    With AAPL's share appreciation BH likely owns more than $100B worth today. I had no idea BH's stake was so high. Note they only started buying Apple in May 2016 and since their initial purchase of $1B which has generated 5X growth has been steadily buying. If BH is the Tesla mystery buyer, hold on to your hat...er...shares. A BH buy is definitely a sign of expected long term growth.

    Apparently production is underway and they are expecting fda to push this through. My manager announced to us employees we should expect to get our vaccines in mid Dec since we get first dibs as front line health care workers.

    You're right. The Pareto Principle applies to stock movement too. 80/20 rule seems to happen a lot in life. Interesting.

    I think Tesla will use big data and can identify which area has no disengagements and which areas still need work. Then they may just geo fence areas that has no disengagements and expand from there as they tackle other edge cases.

    Agree. The calls I bought Tuesday (Dec 4-Jan 15) are up ~150% so far on average. If the SP is kept near 500 today I plan to load up before close today on many more short-term calls. I think (barring macro) a spike Monday morning is in the 80-90% likelihood range. I like those odds as a risk/reward play.

    Gonna be a wild battle for $500 today! I expect MM's to put their foot down and eventually peg is right here. Might buy a few calls for next week to sell at noon Tues. Should be an absolute lock if we're flat today. Not advice.

    And yours is baseless and paranoid.

    CRs "masters" are their subscribers. They take no advertising money and pay for everything they test.

    They've been instrumental in finding (and getting corrected) significant product and safety flaws in a slew of products- including cars- going back decades

    That incudes finding the Model 3 ABS bug- for which Elon explicitly thanked them- and as noted resulted in great positive press by being able to fix it via an OTA instead of a physical recall.


    CR released their annual car ratings. In the same 1 month period they've released them every year going back at least a decade or more.

    But somehow it's a conspiracy to suit some nebulous "masters"?

    Not EVERYTHING is a vast global conspiracy against your personal interests.

    A message this country desperately, desperately, needs right now.

    My hope would be that the YouTubers will pull their older FSD videos, so that only the ones on the most recent updates will show. Otherwise we'll be fighting older versions and their shortcomings forever. (The FUDsters will keep showing the goofs, even though they were fixed long ago.)

    My understanding is that they need to be working since Roth contributions can only be funded by earnings. So my gift allowed them to put their earnings into their Roths. :cool:
