Got buried yesterday when I posted it…but I concur that it is a small positive for SQ.

And maybe directly related…you can get a Square reader at Sam’s Club now.

Random little observation, that may get buried here and now but that I may want to return to a few years down the line…but having noted this board appointment a few weeks back, seeing the 2 signatures being depicted as equal on page 12 of the latest shareholder letter caused me to think the following:

I wonder if Sarah Friar will end up developing a reputation of being a superstar executive along the lines of Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook COO).

Part of the thinking also includes knowing that Jack Dorsey is also CEO of Twitter, thus whoever his number 2 is for Square basically has no choice but to be a superstar.

Thinking aloud; Long SQ; Long Sarah Friar (except there’s not a marketable security for that)

Volfan84,

To me there is no doubt. She is a rock star. I’m not the biggest fan of Dorsey and, for a good few months that kept me from investing in SQ. But while I’ve come around a little bit on him, it’s Friar who I love at SQ.

Matt
Long SQ
