It’s another Friday and happy hour time again. So sit back, relax and check out some all around interesting reads I’ve found this week.
The Buffett Way
The 2011 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder letter was recently released. Though I’m not a shareholder myself, it’s worth taking the time to see how one of the greatest investors of our time views the company, the economy, the stock market, and were he believes it’s headed in the future. This is a recommended read every year.
Is Anything Bigger Than Apple?
This week Apple topped the $500 billion market cap. Quite a climb since it’s lowly days of near extinction competing against Microsoft and the PC movement. While reaching that market cap is nice, comparing the company to things Apple is bigger than, is more fun. As a side note, Apple’s board thought they would thank their CEO Tim Cook with a $387 million pay package for taking them to the top. Oh wait, didn’t Steve Jobs do that?
- Ever have that “If I only knew then what I know now” moment? Robert offers up his top four financial tips he would give to his 18 year old self. A great list we all should have known about!
- Speaking of 18 year old selves (though it relates to any age), when it comes time for job interviews Sydney covers some common job interview questions. It’s a long list, but a great way to prep for an upcoming job search.
- One Cent At A Time wants to know where he should be investing money. A good question and a perfect example of how all of us can take our goals and break them down into possible investments.
