............It wouldn't surprise me if WEB is behind these huge transactions........there were persistant rumors this summer that Buffet was looking at the stock....it would fit a lot of his criteria as far as being a well established company dominant in their sector.......low P/E right now of 7.2........way down from their high...........problem is that the agricultural sector is hurting right now..........guess Buffet might figure they've been down so long it's time for a turn around, huh.
Nobody's asking you to buy Deere. But how are third world farms going to become so productive without modern farm equipment? The problem is that developing countries can't afford as many tractors in the near future. Of course, this will eventually lead to declining productivity and larger demands for US grain, IMO.
Hey, we're not interested in your apparently comprehensive racial theories here. And what's the deal calling Jerry Yang a Chinaman, right after extolling the assimilation of European immigrants on Nebraska soil? What we care about is whether you were as insightful as your BRK-buying forebears, purchasing YHOO a year and a half ago.
There are a lot of smart people reading this thread. Let them talk for a change. <g>
