"it's harder to see what will trigger a rally next year"

1. "A company's value over long periods of time will grow no faster than it's earnings do" ... so EARNINGS GROWTH

2. Who cares about next year? I'm trying to retire on this thing in 2020 at $400,000 per A share.

Hopefully we do a 30B acquisition every two years giving 2B post-tax earnings each. Another 10 billion of annual cash. Or, buying equivalent fractional interests in businesses. Not much of a difference.
