Buffon oops Buffet

Here is the link Berkshire Profit Declines 24 Percent on Buffett’s Derivatives - Businessweek

This is why I don't gamble on the stock market, you might as well go to Vegas and at least have a good time.

Poor old Joe.... he must be heartbroken.

With that kind of loss in his portfolio, he's had to make some difficult compromises in his life.

Thank God Joe has found a home. Not sure it's him though, couldn't find any mention of Berkshire Hathaway.

Profits fell- but it's still profit. So? You guys sound like sore losers whining and complaining about someone else who is making money you could make but didn't have the balls to risk it. Get up and shake the dust off, shut up and move on with life.

Buffett is a "buy and hold" investor.

I don't think he cares what happens to the stocks in the days and weeks after he buys them.
