I’ve met lots and lots of these powers on Wall Street. The only one I ever thought was particularly smart was not on Wall Street but on Farnam Street in Omaha; that was Mr. Buffett. BEING RIGHT A ND W RONG They are not stupid, not like they’re juvenile delinquents, stupid. They are not great geniuses like Warren Buffett. As far as I can tell, there’s only one real genius that I’ve ever met in the world of investing, and that’s Buffett, and I’ve met very smart people but they’re not on Wall Street.

Management buyouts are just general fraud. So that is a moral preachment. When I was writing 37 38 CL ASH OF THE FIN A NCI A L PUNDITS about the Drexel Burnham Lambert junk bond scandal, that was not just a warning to people that the stocks and Drexel were all going to go into bankruptcy, which they pretty much did. But that what Drexel was doing was morally wrong. So there is definitely a moral content. There’s moral content today as well. I am a stock owner of Goldman Sachs, but I think a lot of what Goldman Sachs did during the meltdown in the fall of ’08 was morally wrong, and the aftermath in ’09 was morally wrong.

I mean, when CNBC has some bells ringing and bright graphics on the screen and says we’re about to tell you something of great importance, you might as well just turn off the TV. I’ve looked that up on my own 68-year-old life, and I try to generalize from my experiences. And generally when I have bought individual stocks in any concentration whatsoever, it has not worked out well. There have been exceptions . . but not many.
