Desta matéria do NYT, retiro a nova tag que inauguro neste post:

This is a panic in the way of the fine 19th-century panics, where we all run around like headless chickens,” said R. Jeremy Grantham, chairman of the Boston-based investment firm GMO, who had predicted stocks would tumble. “I have been in the business for 40 years, and I have never seen anything like this.”

E enquanto isto o Washington Post nos brinda com os apertos de Warren Buffet, o investidor preferido do Paulo do FYI:

Buffett’s Stake in Berkshire (on Paper) Falls $9.6 Billion; Ellison Is Runner-Up

Think the market has hammered your portfolio? Pity Warren Buffett — he’s lost $9.6 billion this year, in his own company alone.

The value of Mr. Buffett’s equity in Berkshire Hathaway Inc. declined more than that of any other big-company chief executive, according to an analysis by Steven Hall & Partners, a compensation-consulting firm.

Other big declines: Oracle Corp.’s Larry Ellison, who lost $6.6 billion in value; Microsoft Corp.’s Steve Ballmer, down $4.8 billion; Inc.’s Jeff Bezos, $4.2 billion; and News Corp.’s Rupert Murdoch, $3.9 billion. (News Corp. owns The Wall Street Journal.)” [grifo meu]
