Michael Lewis

Quotes About Securities #1673689

Thomas A Kempis

Quotes About Securities #466414
#51. You should be unconcerned about short-term price action when you own the securities directly, just as you were unconcerned when you owned them indirectly through BPL. I think about them as businesses, not "stocks", and if the business does all right over the long term, so will the stock.

Quotes About Securities #413730

Jed S. Rakoff

Quotes About Securities #340470

John C. Maxwell

Quotes About Securities #213748

Paul Halpern

Quotes About Securities #881708
#70. One way to ease liquidity for banks is that the government can buy all highly rated securities held by the banks. Every single bank in the U.A.E. has some sovereign debts in their portfolios. I am not asking them to buy any junk bonds, rather the high quality U.A.E. government debt.

Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair

Quotes About Securities #1075316

Robert F. Engle

Quotes About Securities #1074536

Seth Klarman

Quotes About Securities #1052278
#73. The major driver of economics is the equilibrium approach, which has taken various forms over the years.

Kenneth Arrow

Quotes About Securities #1049561

Warren Buffett

Quotes About Securities #1040047

Quotes About Securities #916655

Mary Anne Radmacher

Quotes About Securities #775505
#85. We certainly had an upheaval at the start of the Great Depression, and that resulted in a lot of financial reform, but it wasn't done in one stroke, and it wasn't done immediately. The Depression was in 1929 and resulted in the Securities and Exchange Act of '33, '34, '35, '37, '39, and '41.

Lloyd Blankfein

Quotes About Securities #723705
