you think you can civilize him with civilized instructions? i doubt it. he's a lonely, confused nerd who finds power only at the keyboard. but be assured he has no thoughts and so cannot organize them.
but pray tell, why doesn't anyone want to buy this stock? dow up about 100 again, brk pretty much static again.
I will try to give him a phone call tonight. Still have some hopes. Maybe you are right, maybe there is a solution.
Now... Why would anyone want to buy this stock?
The "liquidation value", aka conservative value, of BRK, is only 9% less than the share price, as of close today. (assuming that BRK did not make any changes to its portfolio since the annual report came out)
BRKa peaked at 80,000 in July then fell to 60,000.Lancaster is right; that was proportionally the largest (and shortest) drop in BRK's history. But in the last four weeks BRKa has moved up to 65,000-66,000. Just today the Dow was flat but BRKa was +1000 (+1.6%). All this makes the LARGEST proportional REBOUND in BRK's history, i.e. 30%of the decline has been recouped in four weeks. In percentage terms, BRKb has behaved in tandem. So what is the bitch?
OT: Is SURFERJERK's real name and info what he saysit is? Its a common tactic on these BBs to give out an enemy's name, e-mail, phone #, etc. Before anybody goes "after" some "revealed" information, I'd be careful about actual identities--it might be the algebra teacher that flunked SURFER out of the 11th grade.
when brk was moving along briskly some months ago it had many days when it acted inversely to the dow, like bonds often do. it seemed investors looked upon brk as a haven from the market. now brk may be moving inversely to the market again, which would be a very good sign.
if he doesn't stop being so obnoxious. He is probably short the stock. BRK hasn't moved because there is a constant short supply. Arbs can still make a good one month return off of the GRN deal. The constant supply of stock will be gone soon.
