          If it makes you feel better, Pepsi does rank slightly ahead of Justin Trudeau.

            Because of his sheer gravity, he plays on a way easier table than everyone else. Whatever he buys goes up automatically because of his name, and he gets to buy it for less on the same basis. If anyone had an automatic 10% advantage on every buy and 10% advantage on every sell, they'd look pretty good too. Again, there's nothing wrong with him and I do applaud the giving commitment, and he's a rock of sanity in a river of crazies, but I don't think he has any exceptional insight.
            In regards to his investing, which is how I was originally introduced to him, his general approach of disciplined patience over the long term through quality holdings (and dividends) simply aligned with me.

            As for any investment premium due to his name, thatís due to a reputation thatís well earned imho.

              I don't understand the Kardashian thing at all. Firstly I don't find any of them particularly attractive. I don't watch any of their shows and kim is the only one I could pick out of a lineup. To be fair to her she seems to have some marketing and business acumen. The other ones I don't know why they are famous?

                I fell off my chair laughing at this when I first saw it.

                  I think Kim and the Jenner girls are attractive, but the fact that they're famous for umm Kim's sextape, and a stupid reality show, just goes to show how dumb society is becoming. Actors and singers at least have some talent, the Kardashians... is taking selfies a talent now ?

                      Reality TV kicked this off, where normal shmucks can become famous for doing nothing but appearing on a tv show contest. Sometimes even gain high office.
