    Isnt owning this stock similar to owning an etf basically. From what i understand berkshire owns a percentage of a few different if the market sells off so should this. The only reason this went up the last couple of days is because it got added to s&p. Thinking maybe there could be a pullback over the next few days to get in at a better price.

    • first of all, try some lower case letters in your posts.

      secondly, berkshire holds large positions in only a few SELECTED companies. it also holds complete ownership of non-traded companies that it leaves intact. burlington northern is about to join that category.

      similar to ETF's in a way, but not in any way that can be duplicated by an ETF.
