On Monday, Portnoy slammed Berkshire Hathaway’s
Warren Buffett for unloading airline bonds as a coronavirus widespread took a initial toll. He also went off on how he done roughly $300,000 on a day though missed out on an even bigger series by removing out too soon.
“I’m only copy money,” Portnoy said. “Why take increase when each airline goes adult 20% each day. Losers take profits. Winners pull a chips to a middle. … we should be adult a billion dollars.”

Evans compared Portnoy’s diatribe Monday to one of a most-quoted market-top signals in history.
Back in a tumble of 1929, Yale economist Irving Fisher famously pronounced “Stock prices have reached what looks like a henceforth high plateau.” We all know what happened in Oct of that year.
“Frame it,” Evans pronounced of Portnoy’s take. “Then run like hell.”
