For standing up and insisting that a stock split was NEEDED to meet liquidity needs.
HC took a lot of abuse from 1 or 2 people using multiple screeen names.
Today, he is TO BE THANKED BY SHAREHOLDERES FOR LEADING
BUFFETT AND CONVINCING HIM OF THIS SHAREHOLDER FRIENDLY ACTION.
Thanks HC!!! Ignore you-know-who
>>>>HC should have been elevated to Berkshire BoD a long time ago. Time for us shareholders to start grassroots movement to facilitate such<<<<.
HC has been our own version of a Tea Party movement.
And it paid off. The stock was stuck at $65 pre split. Everything above $65 is the HC premium. Period.
hchookerlover, years ago I almost put you on iggy figuring with that name you were just another brkville fruitcake here to break my kahunas but then I thought, maybe the guy knows me, lol. Anyway, the good news is geepod, strat, and Buffett all stayed healthy long enough to enjoy the split and the demand for our shares caused by that action. I'm sure todd and his pals are good kids, there is no sense in debating the obvious. Thanks bro,
80 or BUST !! I'll be happy to leave brkville and thank BUFFETT for making the move or brkb would be in the 3000 range. One last time,
iv,bv,iud,Dreman, I know.
Thanks implies some measure of cause & effect. It takes a real stretch of the imagination to come to that conclusion.
He does deserve applause for getting it right. But after 6 weeks of victory laps and self congratulations, I'd say it's time to move on.
Hman doesn't deserve any congratulations for that,
He *USED* Geeps dogfood diet and the foundations not "getting their fair value" as pawns as arguments to split the shares to give a short term pop to the price for his own good so he could take advantage of an incoming shareholder/partners ignorance and bow out.
Self serving bias at work folks, if you aren't aware of this bias, you can be certain you have it in spades.
And then, to make it more entertaining, he appears to actually think he's teaching us that if we split the shares down to fiddy cents and sell them in the candy aisles of Walmoat, it can pop the price.....Really? You mean if there are more buyers than sellers, the price goes up? Who knew.
Tho H *does* deserve the yahoo anonymous brk instant message board version of the nobel prize for physics, as his posts and conversations are more proof of the 2nd law of thermodynamics, that entropy increases in a closed system as it follows the arrow of time.
