    mornin jad, CHARLES DREIFUS โ€“ A SMALL CAP INVESTOR THINKS BIG,

    wealth track , he talks about why , YYY, div paying stocks add value. Of course I would TRY to splain to uncle warren , YYY, a small div would INCREASE DEMAND, for brk, just like the authorized BUYBACK gimmick he had little interest in acting on, increased DEMAND for brk. I feel bad for buffett he's so locked in on soooooooooooo many topics that are destroying proceeds from brkb sales by the foundations and HE refuses to debate the issues. EASY ???, YYY has brkb done so poorly relative to the spy in the past 5 years YYY ? I'm layin 6/5 he has no idea YYY ?? better yet, YYY, did HE HAVE TO, yes HAVE TO , authorize the buyback to get brkb back to 1.1 xs book in sept 2011 , YYY ? and the kicker, 90 % of brkb EXPERTS don't have any idea either and wont until buffett gets it ,THEN, experts can agree with HIM, amazing !! This is setting up sweet for the very few who get it. IV net worth, I know, my IV net worth.

    • Good morning hc. I've found and saved the link. I'll take a look at the transcript once they post it. I don't do well with voice, even with my electronics, and I can scan, speed read, and comprehend, a transcript in a fraction of the time it takes to listen/watch to the audio/video.

      The problem with a small dividend yield, IMO, is that you have to convince someone like me that you can make up the difference in growth. That's one of the reasons I won't touch IBM. With IBM's current 2% dividend yield and my annual total return target of 8%, I have to be convinced that IBM can grow the dividend by 6% per year, each and every year, for at least the next 100 years, and I just don't believe they'll do that. My guess is that their real grow is only about 0.6% per year, inflationary pricing growth may add another 2.2%, and that means the 3.0% shortfall has to be generate by buying back about 2.9% of their outstanding stock each and every year. I just can't make that leap of faith and so I pass on them.
