Here is another of our videos offering tips and insights into the business of photography. TRANSCRIPT: Here are a few thoughts on the value of any given customer. I’m John Harrington. When you’re talking to a client, they’ve made a decision to call you they’ve made a whole sponsor of decisions about whether they want to utilize you.

The only reason these are calling you is basically because they’re considering working with. 500 jobs is suddenly heading to parlay itself during the period of a lifetime romantic relationship with that client into ten plus jobs. Even if you’re only getting one job a calendar year, it’s going to be a lot. 5,000 down the line because they’re not going to call you back again.

I have nothing at all to hide, therefore I don’t really caution. Actually, it seems like it is not influencing the way too many people, so maybe it’s just the press heading crazy over it and making more of a large deal from it than your average FB user. I still think mobile phone companies and credit card companies know a lot more about you than FB; those guys know what your location is, what you spend money on going years etc back. Creepy.

But that’s been true for a long time. Anyway, as typical, the JP Morgan annual notice is a great read. No need to elaborate much onto it, but as normal the charts are enjoyed by me they put in it and in the proxy. They are charts I am following for a long time, even before they started to put them regularly in the reports.

By just how, I listen to the JPM meeting phone calls every one-fourth usually. There’s a complete lot to learn from them, and when Dimon is on, he could be usually pretty blunt, so fun (and educational) to hear. But a very important factor which a question is the format. When you pay attention to some of the high-tech conference calls, what’s cool is that a few of them totally drop the summary and go to Q&A.

Do we really need someone to read off the highlights from each glide? I would rather that be cut and have an extended Q&A session, or have topics not covered in the slides. It seems kind of ridiculous that someone just reads off something most of us have already. Amazon’s meeting protocol is interesting. I believe they spend 20 or 30 minutes reading the materials (at the meeting) before they start talking about stuff. Maybe just release the documents half an hour quicker or whatever (I understand they release it before the call but boost the time in between just, maybe).

Give people time to go over it so on the meeting call, they can just concentrate on the Q&A and maybe a brief comment just highlighting important things. But I have no idea. I haven’t changed my mind about bitcoin in any way, no, I haven’t eliminated out and secretly bought some “in the event”. Nope. Didn’t do this and don’t plan to.

I continue to part with Buffett with this. I remember the anger and feeling when people spoke too against gold. But you never really see value investors get upset when bears talk down value stocks. What’s up with these big hedge money? I don’t know. I am a lover of the big hedge money, generally, but many have been doing horribly in recent years.

I am especially stunned how bad Einhorn does, as he seems to be making the same mistake that the best funds made back the 1997-2000 rally. If you remember, guys like Julian Robertson and Stanley Druckenmiller experienced trouble in the past, as shorting expensive stocks and shares and buying value didn’t work for a few years back then. One would think people wouldn’t repeat that mistake, yet, Einhorn is short a bubble basket. Anyway, his evaluation is right probably, and the ones stocks will decrease or be valued more realistically at some point probably.

But the problem is, you could have argued that with Amazon and Netflix for years. Who is to say this must ‘normalize’ next a year? And if it doesn’t, the stocks can be up another 30%, 50%, or 100%. If the marketplace is overlooking fundamental valuation, that just means something trading at 100x P/E can just as easily go to 200x P/E.
