    Beyond Meat. The world will get used to the texture and the taste will be essentially the same. Don't know if they are the winner, but right now they have first mover advantage.

    Is IBM bigger than Apple?
    While IBM is one-tenth the size of Apple, it's still very large ($119 billion) and has been struggling to get bigger.Dec 23, 2019


    Still blows my mind. IBM was at the table with Michael Corleone in Havana along with the other giants. They tried to swallow Bill Gates and crush Apple and ended up one tenth the size

    They had 81% share of business machines and computers at one point

    A buddy of mine was talking about whether it's a good time to get into Tesla today ...

    I don't think it's a huge shock to think that picking a good winner or two in the clean energy Olympics will be a huge asset to a portfolio ...

    But I'm a little hesitant to endorse electric cars at this point and Tesla in particular ... strikes me as a high price point and distance limitations make it highly niche to me at this point ... more intrigued about what possibilities they may have if they aggressively expand their presence in solar power with residential/commercial buildings.

    Seattle has the 1st and 3rd most valuable companies in the World and we’re pissing it all away.
    4 of the top 50 market cap companies reside in the Seattle area at this point

    Thinking of buying some WAMU.

    I bought on the plummet. No one told me "don't catch a falling knife." Live and learn.

    They are developing technology in the roofs though, that will solar charge, so you will eventually be able to stretch out the distance and charge unplugged.

    The Battery technology is the real prize for Tesla, not the cars. Their goal is to use a solar panel (you won't need to make your whole roof have solar panels) and funnel it into a battery that will hold it's charge for months at a time, and that's how you will power your house.

    I looked at Amazon 15 years ago at 60 and it was just as overpriced/valued then as today.

    They've won the retail game, and their next goal is to use drones to deliver items to people's houses, yet there are people who say if you back out Amazon Prime and Amazon Web Services, they lose money on retail b/c of shipping costs or play in the same margins as grocery stores 1-2%

    Ultimate proof of you only have to be right once if you gamble on stocks theory. The other 999 out of 1000 companies you take a flyer on can go to zero, but if the one is Amazon and you hold it you win.

    I worked with a guy who never seemed worry about keeping his job or making sales in a career that is solely judged on that metric and could never figure out why. Years later found out he bought $3000 worth in the early 90's on his son recommendation and has never sold a share and then it all made sense.

    I saw some credible analysis that values it over $8. I’ll probably sell tomorrow and lock in the gaines.

    You forgot how stupid everyone is here. This joke might have crushed elsewhere.
