    index funds selling pressure?


    Yes. You caught me!

    I'm not sure about Vanguard Extended Market. But you're right with regard to Vanguard Total Stock Market. If I remember correctly, they buy all of (replicate) the first 1,000 companies by market cap (which would include Berkshire) and sample the remaining "4,000" . Total Stock Market actually contains 3,725 stocks. I believe the "Wilshire 5,000" actually has 7,000 or 8,000 stocks. Thanks for setting things right, wright :-)
