Warren Buffett doesn't recommend going into debt to buy stocks. So-called margin debt rose to a record in January. And Warren issued an alert warning that quote investors may underestimate the risks of trading on margin. There is simply no telling how far stocks can fall in a short period. Even if your borrowings are small and your positions aren't immediately threatened by the plunging market, your mind may well become rattled by scary headlines and breathless commentary. Borrowing money is a way of trying to get rich a little faster, but there are plenty of good ways to get rich slowly. My partner, Charlie, says that there's only three ways that a smart person can go broke. He says, 'liquor, ladies, and leverage. end quote

Spotify, the world’s largest music streaming service, has filed for an initial public offering today. The Sweden-based company has more than 71 million paying users as of December 2017. The company also enjoys an overall user base that includes ad-supported free listeners of 159 million, far outpacing the competition from Apple, Google, Tidal, and others. Spotify will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol SPOT. According to CNBC, the price of Spotify shares traded on private markets indicate the company could be worth as much as $23 billion. Another slightly surprising winner from the IPO: Sony Music. The world’s second-biggest music label owns 5.7 percent of Spotify's shares. At that same $20 billion valuation, that stake would be worth $1.1 billion.
