What Mr. Munger means is that the stocks are just not as cheap anymore than say 40-50 years ago.

Wells fargo= good, even though the banks have caused the past recessions
Bitcoin=bad because of 10,000%+ increase, giving people profits
Truth (4 months ago)
Nice straw man. And your wrong about Wells Fargo being a part of the recession. Wells Fargo was the only US Bank that wasn't a part of selling sub-prime mortgages and other toxic loans to the people. And as far as bitcoin is concerned it is worthless, the only thing useful about it is the Blockchain concept which can be tailored and dressed differently; for example look at Ethereum or Ripple or any other Cryptocurrency. The only thing making Bitcoin go up *IS* speculation, banks can simply take the concept of Blockchain and use it as Utility Tokens for many different services that they already provide, such as a transfer Token between currencies. Let go of your Bias and be intellectually honest.

Hey Charie , Wells Fargo just made a little mistake and Bitcoin is the real fraud. OK , whatever you say. You're the expert with the billions.

Buffett quote on what he tells his managers "don't do anything in business today, that you wouldn't be comfortable with tomorrow, being on the front page of the news paper". Guess Wells Fargo wasn't listening.

Sorry Charlie . . . do have a stake to protect? You're a frickin' numb blood thirsty dinosaur . . . , and I OWN WF!

How can anyone still want to bank with WF? No justice.

Wells Fargo fraud = A-okay, actually a good thing
Bitcoin = not okay, toxic
No irony here at all, folks

Bitcoin valuation = not okay. One person buys with the hopes that another person will buy for a higher price from them. That represents a large portion of the people buying bitcoin, as opposed to using it as a currency.

Wells was the only bank that wasn't involved in mortgage fraud

Because they were too busy defrauding their depositors.

If you closed your eyes you’d think that was Warren Buffet speaking.

So true was thinking the same thing, could you imagine those two in conversation after a nice bourbon, LOL

He's just protecting Berkshire's investment. With millions invested in Wells Fargo, did you really expect him to say anything else? You people need to offer up impartial information for your viewers. We know what a sales job looks like. I lost respect for your 'opinions' a long time ago.

What did Wells Fargo do ?
Judy A (7 months ago)
Pac Man Seriously? Google it. Wells Fargo defrauded thousands of customers. Then, instead of holding management accountable, they gave them bonuses and fired all the hard working lower level people who were being forced to make unattainable sales numbers. I took all my money out of their so-called bank and went to a smaller credit union. Wells Fargo should be broken up, the parts sold and all management fired without golden parachutes, bonuses or severance packages.
