  18. Yep, seems like he totally changed his style over the past 10 years..i remember way back when he did very well on WFC, then scored again with BAC. Surprised more shareholders haven’t left considering his performance over the past 10 years.
  19. https://moiglobal.com/phil-ordway-airlines/ This might help you out.
  20. interesting tidbit...sheesh, Chou and Berkowitz reaklly took it on the chin by sticking with SHLD Sears Holdings In hindsight, our initial assessment of Sears Holdings being worth more than $50 per share a few years ago was most likely too optimistic. This is taking into consideration that we received in excess of $23 per share in distributions from various spin-offs and right offerings, which we later sold in the market. In 2017, we initiated a stock lending program where the Fund received interest on the shares lent. For Sears Holdings, the total security lending interest we received for the year was about $7.25 million or about $6.41 per share, all in U.S. dollars. This shows how heavily shorted the common shares of Sears Holdings have been. For the six-month period ending on June 30, 2018, the total security lending interest received was $483,596 or about $0.43 per share, all in U.S. dollars. In spite of the interest income earned from security lending, plus the approximately $23 per share received in distributions from various spin-offs and rights offerings, it has not been a good investment.
  21. anyone know what SEC rule has the brokers acting bonkers? Mine changed earlier this year and only allows stocks trading on NYSE or NASDAQ and before that I could buy anything OTC.
