    • Being smart has nothing to do with it. As an insurance company you HAVE to maintain level of funds to cover claims
      Not Stock, no European bonds no government bonds, CASH and US bonds. S&P is saying BRK is dangerously low in that are because Buffet does not like them
      It is prudent to downgrade due to asset classes mismatch vs. profile typical insurance company has. To avoid the issue BRK needs to spun of insurance and maintain lower risk profile there than in other areas

      Sentiment: Sell
