Cheap power helped create a new market that didn't exist previously.
Kessler quotes
When someone pukes up a stock, it's not hard to miss. Mispriced securities all over the table. And we are there with a barf bag, collecting all we can.
Kessler
But someone knew and made a killing. It was investing when you know something no one else knows.

Our portfolio was more of a Roach Motel-stocks came in and never left. This was exciting.

The stock market teaches you the hard way - it's all in the margin.
Andy Kessler (author) quotes
You can't ever forget how precarious and humbling running money really is.
Andy Kessler (author)

Kessler Andy (author) quotes
But I was confused. Here we were scrambling around looking under rocks for great long-term investments, and every other hedge fund, or so it seemed, was doing some funny hedge of cheap yen money and T-bills. That's investing?

Andy Kessler (author)
It was what I didn't know about that always seemed more interesting.
Kessler quotes
By the way, I love paradoxes.They usually mean someone doesn't understand what's really going on and you can invest in things other people "can't know." I start salivating when I hear that word paradox.

I think what I learned is that wealth comes not just from taking risk but from constantly taking risks.
Kessler Andy (author) quotes
But the stock market is not 1:1-it is not a zero sum game. So those deaf,dumb and blind economists can't find the capital flows.
Andy Kessler (author)
Wealth really is a never-ending process. So is running money. You can't just walk away and ask about the meaning of life.
Andy Kessler (author) quotes
You invest in companies with great long-term prospects.

"I've been doing this for years. Never invest in a company with the target price for the stock in the name of the company."
Kessler Andy (author)
When you think long-term, the edge is really investing because others can't know.
