    brk and RISK, i bet the expert children of the brkville madrassa were SHOCKED to read this,

    The holding company is the world's fourth-largest reinsurer, and had $458.1B of assets and $5.8B in derivative liabilities as of September 30. As of Friday, the firm had $31.4B in credit-default swaps linked to its
    debt.

    while the markets are near record HIGHS and the vix is near record LOWS, brk should try to unwind our naked short index puts un hedged position and stop playing games with silly nonsense. I still say buffett will reduce his role at brk this year , ibm is EVERYTHING buffett HATES in a public company, clearly, one of the biggest mistakes of the past 20 years. PLUS he is aggressively PROMOTING IBM which is throwing good reputation after bad, while giving away his LIFES WORK too cheap via the foundation sales. This is what happens when you surround yourself with yes men and can't CHANGE your Thinking in less than 5 years. For all experts on brk take a look at who owns the largest positions in brk and WHY they own it. Like willie mays when the great ones don't when to stop swinging, it gets very ugly. HUGE buffett fan, breaks my heart to see him lose his way !!
