Oh I get it, you wait until it goes up and everybody loves it, THEN you buy it. I feel so stupid only being up a few bucks in Berkshire Hathaway after 8 long agonizing months owning this dog of a stock. What could I have been thinking?

Mike, welcome back to Mattel. Stay a while. We've got roughly the same cost. If it goes below 20 and you sell, it may be me you're selling to.

Jimmy Jr. was born on Thursday. Weighed in at 9 pounds, 11 ounces, 21 inches, with a P/E of 30. Mom is doing well. Dad is exhausted. This little guy may be responsible for a few pennies of Mattel and Disney earnings in the future, though so far Proctor & Gamble (Pampers) is the clear winner!
