S&P Lava Lamps

Compressing large quantities of real time data for easy visualization by the layman is limited only by the creative minds of data analysts. I stumbled on to this cute visualization after viewing the “Bubble Charts” provided by Schwab to show actual & relative perf of each account holding. Am sure there are many others but this seemed cute for one that recalls the S-D-R&R disco era. Berkshire has to be one of the larger lime-green bubbles in the financial column so feet-up,grab a cool one & watch it rise to the top!

Fun.
It’s not entirely useless, either.
For example, it’s easy to spot that no bigger firm has done better in the last 60 days or year to date.
And that no bigger firm is positive year to date.

Not a very extremely surprising or important result, but the visualization does make it clear.

I use this comparatively boring one sometimes

This presentation is a bit entertaining.
Currently today’s financial “Lamp” is a pretty string of lime green bubbles with the largest ,BRK, being surrounded or slightly below some of it’s largest holdings, ie, BAC,AXP,USB…Any idea why JPM, the 2nd largest bubble, is not a major holding?

Visualizing all 500 in yesterdays meltdown is interesting.
Berkshire is the largest bubble in the financials.
Market close increased volume shown as a flash mostly in smaller Co.
