    Time to Demand a Dividend

    The time is now to demand one. I have a suspicion that one will be granted at the meeting. It's too tough to keep growing at this size so Buffet needs to add a dividend. There has been so many "firsts" that he has done, and he realizes people want $$$ if the stock doesn't move. I see 2 choices, either implement a sizable dividend now (in the 2% range)or split up the company within 5 years. If he implements the dividend, Gates will never have to sell his shares when he dies and his fund will have a steady stream of money every quarter. So if you go to meeting (wish I was) demand a dividend. That too will make the stock move and will keep people from selling.
