Seems too cheap here, Barron's mentioned it as well not that I needed their reminder.

Sold my last shares at $209, buying at $164 seems good to me.

oh, and the oak preferreds are above 7%, though ex-div
i don't want a whole lot more (almost full position for me)
but if they go to 8% then I'll have to add more
they go down a lot on small volumes, and it is nonsensical given biz model and common and current BS and the lockups they have
are there other things going on weird in fixed income?
some CEF preferrreds making a run to 6%

I think people are selling pfds because they're scared of bank stocks and also to buy common stocks.

Yeah, you're getting 6% on PNC-P it's not like that bank is gonna default anytime soon, amirite? Callable May 2022 with 6.25% coupon, fixed until that date then converts to floating plus 4.07% if you're afraid of higher rates.

Just one of many names out there. A3/A- subordinated rtg.

Here's why my inherent laziness finally pays off, I never got around to actually buying Apple a few days ago.

Better lucky than smart.

Maybe next week...

I trimmed DLTR a bit more today and added to AAPL.

Might be dumb with so much BRK in my port. Not to mention pulling the flowers to water the weeds.

any idea the percentage of apple out of BK's equity? I could look it up but figured you might know...

last qtr end Apple was 25.7% of his equity port. $57B of $221B. Lower today, I imagine.

I added my 2019 IRA contribution to BRK today. Swapped more DLTR for AAPL. Minor tweaks to calm the shakes -- I don't have an Atari system like HR.

Should have bought OLLI I bet.

What is the urgency in buying AAPL?

No urgency. Did I sound urgent? Two small buys and a small sell.

Well... unless you are thinking today's decline is a great opportunity and didn't last long... you are rotating out of a strong performing name in this volatile time into a stock...

he could just be dollar cost averaging - good strategy w/confusion or news perhaps - I mean, I saw a downgrade to a 10 multiple. Why a 10 multiple? Cause the analyst picked a 10 multiple, that's why. In a world of 2.6% 10 year treasuries, I guess a 10 multiple is appropriate? Take a step back and it can get a bit arbitrary.

If you have a 5 year horizon or 10 year, then...

I am going to take a victory lap. Vain, I know. Apple up 31%. DLTR up 10%

Trimming Apple today.

AAPL bounce back is strong and a positive surprise. The shares I added around $150's have gained over 25%. I cannot be as happy as you, since I closed my option position ( I bought few LEAPS on Jan 3rd) y'day, don't know what I was thinking.

Every time I bought AAPL, it turned out to be a good purchase and every time I sold I regret it. :(
