Don't get me wrong I have been a holder of brkb
for quite a while. I have bought and sold twice since
it started trading and I know it is well insulated
from the rest of the market, however if we really want
to see the price move up the stock must be split
even a 3/2 split would dramatically increase
shareholder value and would not risk dilution of share
percentage. I just wish Buffett could understand most people
cannot afford a seventy or sixty thousand dollar stock.
If you feel the same please respond.
For those who want the BRK report, they can try
to give a e-mail to the following
They give me the report in electronic form. However,
you should have the Adobe programe. But it is ease
download the programe.
Hope this is useful

As a holder of BRK, I would like
to thank your company for the
Alice Schroeder dated 1/99.
has caused lots of excitement amoung the holders of
BRK, and it
been discussed on the
Yahoo Message Boards. Unfortunately, a poster
that he asked PW for a copy, he was told unless he was
a client, it would
think the report is just under 60
Now I notice wk1999 has an e mail to PW to get
electroniclly. See that post a few befor this
Please try to give a e-mail to the following
and request to give you the copy. Althought I have
the copy but I am not sure can I reproduce it. It is
because it state that it has copyright.
I recall reading WEB's specific answer to that
somewhere (maybe the recent OID reprint). WEB said that he
does NOT interfere with Managements business decisions
when he buys into a company... but rather encourages
them to continue with the business practices they feel
are best for the continued success of that company.
Makes good sense to me.
Funny thing happened to me on the way
to buy Geico! When asked method of payment, i said
"put it on my Amex. card, please", guess what?? They
don"t take amex. cards!! What"ts up w/ that???
of you who talk to Warren, please ask him why, when
he holds 20% of amex. that his Geico does not accept
that method of payment? weird, huh?? If i get to go to
the meeting i will try to ask, but thought maybe
someone knew on this board. thx.
