thanks for posting this data regularly - this is the sure thing that keeps reinforcing my confidence - "its a suckers rally and the smart seller's bonanza of a lifetime " !!
The FUN purchase goes along the lines of the New Found Obsession that the PE / Hedgies have with theme and amusement parks - et al the Sea World sale (Blackstone) and another big purchase that I nowe forget by the PE guys. When ordinary folks are not very amused with how life is treating them I dont see what is driving these investments..
Amidst all the mayhem and calls for "P3" by the Prechterites, Berkshire Hathaway rose on heavy volume. The fact of the matter is that the US Govt. - or any other government for that matter - at this point cannot simply allow another crash, because if it occurs then everybody in Washington is going to be guillotined in short order and they know it. They'll close the exchange first than let the equity markets tank again - period. They may call it "national security" or whatever, but they'll prefer hyperinflation to a tanking stock market.
I don't disagree on your take at all. But I think those in Washington are sewing themselves in a corner-- and in the corner is the guillotine.
Crash the markets -- Washtington gets the guillotine.
Keep the Market from Crashing -- more subsidies to the financial system, which J6P will eventually figure out before November. Washington gets the guillotine.
The only difference is Washington can scare J6P sh$tless and get him on board on even more reflation and false equity support before November. Scare the crap out of J6P and come to the rescue, and Washington may have a chance.
but the market will tank anyways wont it ? how will the banks show earnings (on short side now) if market does not tank ? after all the banks are really making most of their money in the trading business ??
ALSO WATCH OUT FOR SHEEPLE AS THEY AGGRESSIVELY SELL INTO THE RALLY NOT TO FORGET THE INSIDERS AS ZH HAS BEEN REGULARLY POINTING OUT.
Doing a quick check, the Broadwind sales was part of an existing offering, with the proceeds being used to pay off debt.
GOOG founders sellin 3% of company over next 5 yrs...
btw -- they LongLeaf purchase was in Texas Industries, not Instruments.
