One Night Stand?

I just sold ten shares of my fave stock this morning to help pay for our new kitchen. While processing the on-line sale, two of the selections for payment included "check," and "overnight" (for a $20 extra fee.)

I have the luxury of waiting for the check, plus I didn't want to reduce my gain, so I selected "check." After the transaction, I saw this disclaimer:

If you have elected an overnight check, it will be mailed 3 business days from the trade date for delivery the following business day.

Can someone please tell me how mailing a check three days after a transaction qualifies as an overnight delivery??

Well, you might think it would be TBS given that an $1800 investment was worth thirteen grand at one point for me. But since the question is which stock I favor above all, that would have to be Berkshire Hathaway (symbol BRKA on the New York Stock exchange.) This stock has never split since its inception, and is currently worth over a hundred grand per share. Wow, to have gotten in early on THAT deal.

Incredible! I thought you'd say Berkshire, but I had BRKB in mind.

I'm liking Berkshire from afar for now :)

Businesses have a way of getting around all the rules.

The stock100.com prediction of SWC looks pretty impressive. Double in 30 days:

Don't you think it is time for next rally. Do you have any idea what is palladium?

You can reasonably expect a 2000% return. No kidding it is next AAPL! The fundamental is incredibly good. Just research palladium.
