brkville brother jad, you r wayyyyyyyyyy over thinking it bro,
a smart guy would buy ibm, use his good name to tout and promote ibm, while his life's work is being sold off daily 5-10 % too cheap EVERY BUSINESS DAY ! go figure ?? all I can figure is buying and promoting ibm is good for our short index put position, while he builds the EMPIRE, no other reasons makes much sense .
IBM, like every other stock, including BRK, is at least 20% ovewrvalued solely due to FED manipulation of interest rates. What happens when the FED reverses course is obvious. The only question is when.
