"Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken."I currently have a near-20% weighting in my bond short. It is the largest individual asset class bet I have ever made and underscores my conviction -- or insanity. I will be speaking at Whitney Tilson's seventh annual spring Value Investing Congress in Omaha, Nebraska, a week from today (Monday, May 7). The subject of my talk is "The End of the Bond Bull Market (From an Equity Investor's Perspective)." Wish me luck -- I will need it! And if any subscribers are in Omaha next weekend to attend Berkshire Hathaway's ( BRK.A) annual meeting, please look me up. I'll be the guy wearing the sweater that says, "Warning: Bonds may be hazardous to your health!" At the time of publication, Kass was long BRK.B, TBT and TBF. He was short TLT.
