That Seventies Show
Have you ever invested via time travel? Calculated how much money you would possess had you known the financial future? I confess to such a daydream. It is February 1975, my parents inquire what I wish for my birthday, and I respond, “As much  Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) stock as you can buy for $1,000, please.”

(That would have been $985 more than the actual value of my birthday present, but never mind that detail.)
