If he doesn't aquire Chubb with 2 or 3 weeks after this fiscal cliff stuff is done..Don't expect it to ever happen.
Don't expect Buffet to buy Chubb but I do expect the stock price to explode to the upside after we get past this quarterly earnings report and the "Sandy" hit that is already discounted in the stock. Catalist will be the projected 2013 earnings.
Unless another big natural disaster hits, like a huge earthquake in California. That is the problem with P&C stocks--its always something!
For the stock to be hitting a new all-time high in an otherwise weak market is very impressive. With or without Berkshire, I'm happy to be a shareholder and a policyholder.
