    Buffett should split stock.

    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
      address:-

      tcarrera@PaineWebber.COM

      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

    • How can I get the posts to stop skipping lines? I tried preferances, & that does not seem to do it.

      Subject: BRK 1/99
      report








      Dear Sir:


      As a holder of BRK, I would like
      to thank your company for the
      report


      by


      Alice Schroeder dated 1/99.




      This
      has caused lots of excitement amoung the holders of
      BRK, and it

      has

      been discussed on the
      Yahoo Message Boards. Unfortunately, a poster
      stated

      that he asked PW for a copy, he was told unless he was
      a client, it would

      cost

      $540.00. I
      think the report is just under 60
      pages...."





      Now I notice wk1999 has an e mail to PW to get
      electroniclly. See that post a few befor this

    • 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.

    • hi all,
      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???
      Any
      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.

    • Schwab last Thur. Maybe you should call?
