    mornin jad and old friends, update time in brkville, keeping it REAL,

    mornin jad and old friends, update time in brkville, keeping it real,
    does anyone really think our FED is going to let the world collapse over 8 billion or so in Cyprus ? this can will get kicked down the road, again.

    For 20 years buffett told geepod and other retail investors, don’t worry about brkas stock price, your IV is growing, THAT’S what matters. In sept 2011 HE got tired of watching HIS foundations selling a billion plus of HIS donated shs monthly so he authorized a buyback to goose the stock back above BK, so that HIS foundations could enjoy higher proceeds from those sales. NO ONE on this planet could pull the moves uncle warren pulls and never get questioned, no one.

    The stock hasn’t done that well relative to the spy for the past 5 years and the experts agree its because of, SIZE, lol. IF buffett couldn’t write checks for 5 BILLION plus in 4 hours or less, would we own the BAC wts, the GS wts, all the other sweet heart deals we got at the expense of TAXPAYERS in many instances ? Does anyone question why brk got better terms on these deals than TAXPAYERS ? I love it but facts are facts. IF buffett was a BUYER of brk at 50,60,70,80 wouldn’t brk be smaller today ? Do any experts realize the FLOAT in the BS is now way above 1 BILLION shs in large part due to foundation selling ? What was the B float in 2006 at the time of the foundation grants ? Does supply and demand matter , even in brkville ? Did buffett do anything SHAREHOLDER FRIENDLY in 2006 to help the market absorb 1.5 BILLION in selling forever, going forward ?

    You know buffetts position on taxes HE has no interest in paying. Shouldn’t HE support the Htax, 20 % TAX on the proceeds of all profits from the proceeds of sales by foundations on assets sold which consisted of untaxed gains when gifted ?

    Expert Cramer bashed buybacks for 7 YEARS, now, not a word with markets near all time highs. This clown is going to help retail beat the indexes, saint cramer, it’s a beautiful thing.

      IPOs have NEVER been structured worse, NEVER, in my 40 plus years in the game, as I have repeatedly pointed out. Tony Soprano couldn’t come up with this scam. Grad schools should study fb,znga,grpn, etc to teach conning the public 101 with wall streets co- Conspirator's , aka, investment bankers.

      I could go on but I’ll close with aapl since we have been discussing the stock. The rumor now is they will raise the div to 4 $$ a 1/4 or 16 $$ a year. HOW MUCH will aapl pay in divs forever going forward on the 30 million shs they didn’t buyback below 440 the past 30 days ? That’s why these jokers make the big bucks, pathetic. They must be short of cash I guess ? btw, I’ve been trading the aapl puts, IF they declare a giant div and no giant buyback who would know better than aapls board that the stock is overpriced at 440 ?

      it never ends, its never been worse, have a grand day bud, don’t worry, be happy, Cramer and his pals at cnbc will keep you safe. shameful.
