    • "......."I think there will be more shares for

      Precisely and I
      think such events will continue after the merger. It
      takes a certain type of investor to own BRK.
      Unfortunately, institutions do not like it, mainly because they
      don't understand it. Brokers don't like it because they
      can't get owners to buy & sell over & over (That is how
      they make their commission).

      My point is it
      will take several months for the cream to seperate
      from the milk. After a while, WEB will have the type
      of 'partner' he wants (and describes in the owners
      manual) owning the majority of BRK stock. There will just
      be a flury of selling after the merger for those who
      didn't run for the door when the merger was announced.
      Also, I think there are a lot of GRN shareholders who
      would have sold out long before now, but got caught up
      in the falling market, and will hang on till the
      bitter end, trying to recoup lost ground. I just think
      there will be a glut of shares hitting the market
      shortly after the merger.
