Warren Buffett Favors Wells As The "Single Best Bank To Own": A Comparative Returns Analysis

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Following on his latest bash session of gold from the weekend, when Warren Buffett dedicated a substantial portion of his annual letter to shareholders for the now routine and perfectly expected gold blasting, the Octogenarian of Omaha revealed to his faithful personal scribe Becky Quick that of all banks, he would recommend Wells Fargo as the single best bank to own. Naturally, as was previously lampooned by William Banzai, Americans, even those paying a 15% tax rate, would "do absolutely nothing for Warren trading book" if they were to buy gold instead of pooling their cash into the ponzi. As for buying WFC vs. gold, the chart below will show why the world is increasingly taking any proclamations from the man whose net worth was bailed out by the government, with humor more than serious consideration.Presenting the past decade's return of Wells Fargo and of gold. No commentary necessary.

And as a reminder, here is just why Buffett happens to be a big fan of bailouts, especially of Wells Fargo.

The only conclusion we can make is that gold never benefited from taxpayer-funded cash infusions aka bailouts.

Buffett's a sharp guy but where you stand depends on where you sit. Let's see, Warren's an 81 year old guy who turned nothing into $45 billion in net worth. The world fawns on him, politicians come to him for advice, business owners offer him special deals because they want to be associated with him. Think he's looking to change the system?

Warren 'Thanks for the taxpayer bailouts of the past 3 years or else I'd be down about 20 billion and exposed as the Crony Capitalist that I am to the bluehairs' Buffett should mainline a two liter of Cherry Coke whilst inserting a DQ Buster Bar up his own ass.

Warren 'Taxpayer Buffet' Buffett.

When asked his view on stocks/equities, Buffett said "it's not spring time anymore."

Hmmm.

Ole' crooked Warren just can't come to terms with uttering the words "ridiculously overpriced."

 

It's not spring time.

 

(If people can't see that Warren 'Derivatives are Weapons of Financial Destruction' Buffett, after getting deeply involved in the derivatives games only to be bailed out via Paulson/Geithner's bailout of AIG, is a piece of shit of foulest order, they deserve what they get listening to this smiling sociopath).

Maybe, but even the green days are illusory now.  I consider equities "green" when they finish up, percentage-wise, relative to gold & oil.  Those "green" days have been rare and usually nullified within 24-48 hours.

Mon, 02/27/2012 - 09:57 | 2200236 GeneMarchbanks
GeneMarchbanks's picture

Illusory? Of course. But the real lesson from 2008 is, I think, any and all 'markets' can tank but equities can't have free falls because it takes much longer to get confidence back. Now, the risk is not a collapse but an absolute [nominal] take-off. Any drop from here will be managed with utmost control. Of course, retards like Tchir will be all I-told-you-so but it's self deception. In fact the entire thing is a based on people who love to deceive themselves.

The only conclusion we can make is that gold never benefited from taxpayer-funded cash infusions.

Never mind the countless end of capital and volume the bank recieved from illegal gambling websites like Pokerstars and Full Tilt (The DOJ seized 30mil in poker players' accounts from Wells Fargo in 2008), as well as being one of the major cash houses for various Mexican and Columbian drug cartels.

Nothing like the Black Market to strengthen your balance sheet.

Somebody needs to put that fossil out to pasture. Wells Fargo bought Wachovia who had purchased a California mortgage company called Golden West at the top of the market. Then Wachvioa started running that ridiculous pick a payment mortgage. As a result Wells Fargo has a ton of toxic mortgages. I'm surprised they held up this well. I suppose when you have the fed buying your crap you can.

Instead of that route, how about the "pervert of the plains" publically declare that no company held by BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY will accept ANY form of governmental support or bailouts...directly or indirectly. And that any company he holds a minority position in must adhere to that standard or BHK will divest any holdings immediately.

'would "do absolutely nothing for Warren trading book" if they were to buy gold instead of pooling their cash into the ponzi.'

 

--  but what of the money that is now in the hands of the gold seller?  Are we saying that we just want gold price to rise rise rise to pool away money as a whole from the great ponzi?  So the only way to attack the ponzi is to pay higher and higher amounts for gold?

 

so paying higher prices for gold is really 'doing God's(Tyler's) Work'?

Is this the same Warren Buffet that sits around playing bridge with the eugenics criminal Bill Gates discussing how they are going to inject an unsuspecting public with vaccines that sterilize them, that cause spontaneous abortions, and contain live cancer cells? Maybe it’s a different Warren Buffet. And Wells Fargo…isn’t that the bank that was convicted in federal court just last year (along with its Wachovia unit) for laundering 386 billion dollars in cocaine and heroin money? (And nobody goes to jail-Wachovia was even on record leasing the drug jets in its own name.) Maybe it’s a different Wells Fargo because the Wells Fargo I’m thinking of is one of the six banks that own the illicit Federal Reserve and function as a holding co./front for the ruling oligarchy.

Warren, when you are done sulking in your hubris get me some fascist fries and blow!  Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about.

Tyler: At some point can we relegate this moron to Senile Cramer with a Rug irrelevance?

Whether you like ole Karl D or not, he led with this quote:

"Buffett... 'In these cases, the evicted homeowner was the winner, and the victim was the lender.' "

Banks Are the Victims
We all know the phony fuck owns butt loads of Wells...

So why not dismiss him as an irrelevant douche and ignore his bullshit...  As a person who loves sarcasm and humor, this douche isn't even funny...

When there are still ample laughs to be had with Timmay, Bennie, Bullshit Barry and Jamie & Lloyd...

Gold is a classic bubble.. A bubble requires a good story coupled with a ton of liquidity.  We have seenthis in Internet stocks and we have seen it in housing (they dont make any more land).. Since 2000, CPI indexs is up35% and gold is up 550%.  Anyone pointing to past performance as a way to build a bullish thesis is deluding themselves.  Price matters.  Every classic "inflaiton hedge" is overpriced and inflation is not even here.  We are still in a deflationary deleveraging environment. Gold chart is starting to look similar to what we saw in 2008 and with potential hard landing in China this is likely to be the first year wher gold finishes down

If the Gold chart is starting to look like it did in 2008, that is good news. Remember what happened to the price afterwards? The price since the lows of 2008 has gone up about 100%. Yeah, I want in on that again.

Bubble? Not even close.

It looks like it's time to add old Warren to "The List".

The Oracle doesn't know his Orifice from Omaha!  Banks are the whipping boy of 2009 forward.  Who in their right mind?
