Timeless Wall Street Wisdom: The Wall Street Shuffle

Wall Street Shuffle
The Wall Street mentality is the art of the possible, where optimism rules the day. While bears may be intellectually correct, they are rarely proven so, and they are never invited to parties.

Wall Street is made up of creative people who can find ways to turn a little money into a lot of money: mathematicians, rocket scientists, astrophysicists, and people who can sell ice cubes to Eskimos.

Youth, ego and arrogance quickly turns wealth into wisdom and experience. Wisdom and experience is transmuted back into gold, cash, and reputation… if you can wait long enough.

Yogi Berra Quotes

 

 

“It ain’t over till its over.”   – Yogi Berra

For the famous NY Yankee catcher, it is finally over.

The famous “philosopher” and NY Yankee catcher, Yogi Berra, passed away last week at the age of 90. It truly is a sad day for baseball. While Yogi was a famous NY Yankee, he was also well know for his humorous quotes or Yogisms due to their paradoxical and obviously redundant nature.

Even if you are not a fan of baseball or the Yankees (I cannot blame you for that), you might have heard or even said some of his quotes in the past without knowing they were his.

Timeless Wall Street Wisdom

Wall Street Wisdom

Timeless Wall Street Wisdom

Wall Street is steeped with wisdom by learning from another’s folly. While no one wants to be held out as an example of what not to do, it is inevitable that someone makes the mistake. Human psychology is interesting in that what should be a valuable lesson to the rest of us, is squandered away by attempting to do the same thing over and over again. Fortunately many investors have come to the table before you and me and have left a valuable trail of lessons to learn from.

I am writing a category of blog posts with valuable Timeless Wall Street Wisdom. Anyone who cares to read it will be able to learn something new. These are lessons which I have learned over the years either through my own folly or by observing others… mostly through observing others. There is one certainty on Wall Street: if you think you are the first to make this mistake, you are not. There are no new investing paradigms, there are no new ideas, and when you hear the words, “but this time its different”… you should know that it never is. I hope you enjoy my Wall Street Wisdom…
