Sorry to hear that you sold your BRKB. I do not ever intend to sell mine. I will probably own more or less at different times, but never sell it all. It is the one "core" stock that I will always own. Buffet and the culture that he has developed at BRK is unique. So is his view of executive compensation. I wish you good luck in your other stocks, but to me, all other stocks have a lot of warts compared to BRK. I am not counting on Barrons recommendation to drive BRKB to $4,000, but I think it will get there someday.
I agree with you about BRK's message board. A lot of lunatics post there. I rarely read it. It is virtually impossible to know who has any sense on that board and communicate with them. I much prefer to post with the sane(?) people on this board.
