With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it’d be nice to dedicate some of this week’s posts to relationships. Few things are as rewarding as finding the one you want to grow old with. I can be stranded somewhere in Kabul, and so long as the one is beside me, I am happy.
That said, does true love have a price? If a genie gave you the option of having $100 million dollars but never finding the love of your life, or finding that special someone but always living just above the poverty line, which would you choose?
Before answering the question, think about all the fun times you had in your prior relationships, some that could have been. Not all bad right? Now think carefully whether after a certain point, more money can really bring you more happiness.
My theory is that “love” will be the landslide victor, however, at the margin men will have a greater tendency to choose money over love, while women will gravitate towards love over money.
The Samurai Fund: -3.13% YTD vs. the S&P 500 -4.4%. Lenar +15%, Berkshire +11%, GE +4% and STE +6.15% continue to be stars. While MWW -18% and Toyota -11.3% are the biggest dogs. If Toyoda-san didn’t apologize on Friday, I would have sold the stock in a heart beat.
