Roger Ehrenberg ( a fellow contributor to Seeking Alpha) has an insightful post on this topic:

abundant liquidity to pick up bargains while others are suffering.

both dear and scarce. And this about-face took less than six months to
unfold. Quite simply, capital is no longer a commodity.
Berkshire Hathaway was the first name to come to my mind, but Roger has others.
