Chairmen Letters to Shareholders

Its that time of year again –the close of fiscal years means an overload of annual reports including Letters to Shareholders. Two annual letters that I read each year are those from Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffet) and Fairfax Financial (Prem Wasta). Both of these annual letter to shareholders have been posted in the past couple weeks for 2013.

Some highlights from :

  • Berkshire spent $18 billion on 2 large investments in NV Energy and Heinz and continues to look for more elphapents.
  • Charlie and Warren have always considered a “bet” on ever-rising U.S. prosperity to be very close to a sure thing.
  • The letter seemed overall upbeat with the primary economic concern being the timebomb associated public pension obligations.

Some highlights from :

  • Fairfax remains convinced that 2008 was a 1 in 50 or 1 in 100 year event that hasn’t fully played out.
  • Prem remains very concerned over the potentially devastating effects of a hard landing in China (as am I). He

The major U.S. index futures are pointing to a slightly higher opening on Thursday, with sentiment suggesting that market is clinging onto modest optimism, banking on their momentum. Most Asian markets reacted to the Fed’s dovish stance, while the European stocks are also advancing. An economic report released earlier in the day showed that jobless claims fell in line with expectations. The domestic markets may also react to the results of a regional manufacturing survey due to be released shortly after the markets open. With the markets trading in overbought territory, the markets could mostly go about a consolidation move.

U.S. stocks embarked on a rally on Wednesday in reaction to the FOMC announcement, with the S&P 500 Index ending the day at a new record closing high. The major averages opened little changed and moved nervously around the unchanged change until the release of the Fed statement.

Last month was a solemn one for Sea World and the nation. Whenever humans put their trust and faith in a wild animal, certain risks need careful consideration. Dawn Brancheau was an excellent trainer of marine animals who paid the ultimate price. Its not clear whether Dawn let complacency skew her view of danger when dealing with marine wildlife, but her life was lost and the life of one of natures most fierce yet delicate creatures is hanging in the balance.

No one can say for sure. You cant really blame the whale, for he was only acting in the way all wild animals do. He didnt ask to be in captivity. On the flip side, 40-year-old Dawn and others in her field were just trying to preserve a species. The question thats raised in my mind and the minds of many others is why this mammal was allowed to participate at all he was involved in two other fatal accidents prior to Dawn Brancheau’s death.

Its unclear whether Dawn died from drowning or from the whale attack itself. Audience comments suggest the whale grabbed the trainer by the waist and thrashed her so violently that her shoe flew off. T

CFOs say RCM systems need attention now

WHITE PAPER PARALLON Revenue Cycle as a Strategic Advantage As disruptions associated with healthcare transformation continue to drive uncertainty across organizations, a growing number of providers are shifting their focus to full-service revenue cycle outsourcing models. Learn how to choose a revenue cycle partner with the scale, expertise and technology to meet your needs in PARALLON’s white paper, Revenue Cycle as a Strategic Advantage.

While the revenue cycle management system has been focused on clinicals, chief financial officers are saying their hospitals’ financial infrastructure needs are more important.

In a Black Book survey mining CFOs’ assessments of hospital financial administrative needs and the top-performing vendors of financial software and services, 86 percent of hospital respondents said the “needs” of CFOs are currently more important than most clinical and patient quality “wants.”

Black Book Market Research surveyed CFOs, finance vice presidents, controllers and other financial and business managers of 566 hospital and inpatient organizations between January and June of this year.

“Trends in Medicare reimbursement, declining inpatient volumes, rising expenses and bad debt have most hospitals across the country struggling to avoid a financial stability crisis,” said Doug Brown, managing partner of Black Book Market Research, in a press release announcing the survey results.

Great Reasons to Buy your House Now

Prices Continue to Rise

The Home Price Expectation Survey polls a distinguished panel of over 100 economists, investment strategists, and housing market analysts. Their most recent report projects appreciation in home values over the next five years to be between 30.8% (most optimistic) and 9.4% (most pessimistic).

The bottom in home prices has come and gone. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting no longer makes sense.

Interest Rates Are Increasing

Although Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year mortgage have softened recently, most experts predict that they will begin to rise later this year. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Association of Realtors are in unison; projecting that rates will be up almost a full percentage point by the end of next year.

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. Y
