Fortune 400

Well another year and I'm still off of their list. But I continue to invest.

I was viewing the F400 list and noticed that not one single millionaire made it this year! Those two Google guys, Brin and Page are dragging in $13,000,000 per day and they did not even make the top ten. Adelson's casino in Macau vaulted him up to #3. Those 4 Walton kids still total up to over $60B, but individually they hardly make it to the top ten. If old man Sam was still alive, he would be above Gates and Buffett.

Martha Stewart lost almost $400M and is no longer a billionaire. At least* that's some good news.

Anyone here make it?

Almost! Bounced up above Warren Buffett and Gates a couple of times but couldn't hold it for the cut-off date. Guess the portfolio is too volatile with all those dang derivatives. Today, I'm worried about having enough to make my next drug co-pay. :

Good point that I had not considered, but that jail deal has probably already rolled off of her back by now.
