Or was it just to squeeze the shorts and run the price up ahead of Berkshire's own derivative implosion?Did he even plan on buying back B shares?
Well, did he? How does a buyback work with 2 classes of stock?Why not make it all one class?
The A's & the B's are the same except for voting rights.
Well here is a theory.What if BRK has been buying back A shares. That would help explain the spread between the B and A shares that has opened up over the past week.
