WBI 156.6 Our portfolio was boosted 1.1% today. People who claim responsibility for these sort of random gains are a great source of comedy. Lately, we've been taking a lot more negative hits than positive so this week has been a welcome surprise. My job, as a long term investor, is to unflinchingly absorb the punches as they come. For every punch to the throat, there are 10+ fakes that would cause us to lose money if I were to respond. So, we will just blow like a leaf with the market wind, content with the companies we own. If we were not happy with our companies, if we just viewed them as numbers randomly jumping around on a ticker feed, I don't see how we could possibly be pragmatic.
