Are you looking for just the right Valentine’s Day message for someone you love? Here are a few suggestions that have a decidedly financial twist from 14 Ways an Economist Says I Love You by Liz Fosslien. The messages are accompanied by illustrations on her website:1
The S&P was in the red,
But I wasn’t blue,
Because I shorted the market,
And went long on you.
The marginal returns of spending time with you will never diminish.
Love is so foolish.
But I could not care less,
If you’re the stock then I’m bullish.
Of course, you could always romance your loved one by paraphrasing the words of Warren Buffet, “When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever.”2
We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and hope you have a very happy Valentine’s Day!
