巴菲特的投资建议帮助NFL自由球员选择球队

这位球员持自称持有“好多”伯克希尔-哈撒韦的股票。

美国职业橄榄球大联盟(NFL)老将恩达姆孔·苏一直把这项运动和经济问题联系在一起,权衡到哪里打球时他会考虑各州的税收等因素。

佛罗里达州不收所得税。身高6英尺4英寸(1.93米)、体重305磅(约138公斤)的防守截锋苏说,这是2014赛季结束时他跟底特律雄狮队解约并选择到迈阿密海豚队打球的原因之一。

但在上个赛季前,苏和洛杉矶公羊队签了约,而加利福尼亚是美国税率最高的州之一。32岁的苏这样做是源于老朋友沃伦·巴菲特的建议——巴菲特告诉这位曾经的内布拉斯加州立大学橄榄球明星,并不是所有的城市都一样,特别是对有意餐饮、科技和房地产行业的运动员投资者。

苏在播客节目Bloomberg Business of Sports上说:“就像沃伦·巴菲特先生常说的那样,某些城市具有内在价值。所以,尽管洛杉矶和加州的税很高,但那里也有我可以依靠的巨大内在价值。”

苏和公羊队签了一年合同,价值1400万美元。他说其中大概一半归自己所有。苏还表示,到洛杉矶后,他就能接触到洛杉矶道奇棒球队老板之一魔术师约翰逊以及电影公司Mandalay Entertainment董事长兼道奇队投资人彼得·古贝尔等人,另外还有篮球俱乐部金州勇士队和洛杉矶足球俱乐部。

苏说:“我在税收上会受到影响,但将有机会接近这些人。”苏目前的居住地是德克萨斯州,那里也不收所得税。

作为自由球员,苏可以跟任何NFL球队签约。他表示,要是需要考虑接下来该做什么,亿万富翁、伯克希尔-哈撒韦董事长,同时也是苏上大四时结识的好友巴菲特总能为他提供建议。

苏说:“你只需要拿起电话,他总是会接起来。我已经跟他学了一些东西,而且仍在这样做。”他还顺便透露,自己持有“好多”伯克希尔-哈撒韦的股票,但拒绝说明具体数量。(财富中文网)

National Football League veteran Ndamukong Suh has always mixed football with finance, considering things like state taxes when weighing where to play.

Florida has no state income tax, which is one reason Suh, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound defensive lineman, said he chose to play for the Miami Dolphins after leaving the Detroit Lions following the 2014 season.

Prior to this past season, however, Suh signed with the Los Angeles Rams, and California’s tax rate is among the highest in the nation. The 32-year-old did so on the advice of longtime friend Warren Buffett, who told the former University of Nebraska star that all cities aren’t equal, particularly to an athlete-investor with interests in restaurants, technology, and real estate.

“As Mr. Warren Buffett has always said: There’s intrinsic value in certain cities,” Suh said on the Bloomberg Business of Sports podcast. “So, even though L.A. and the state of California have very high taxes, there’s a lot of intrinsic value that I’ve been able to lean on.”

Suh signed a one-year, $14 million contract with the Rams and said he pocketed about half of that. He said being in L.A. has allowed him to develop relationships with people like Dodgers part-owner Magic Johnson and Mandalay Entertainment Chairman Peter Guber, also an investor in the Dodgers, as well as basketball’s Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Football Club of Major League Soccer.

“I’ll take a hit in taxes to be able to have the opportunity to be close to those people,” said Suh, whose principal residence is in Texas, which also has no state income tax.

Suh is a free agent, meaning he can sign with any NFL team. Should he want advice on what to do next, he said the multibillionaire Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chairman, whom he met as a senior in college, is always available.

“All you have to do is pick up the phone and he’s always there to answer,” said Suh—who, by the way, said he owns “plenty” of Berkshire Hathaway shares, declining to be specific. “I’ve learned a handful of things from him and continue to do so.”
