ITIC actually traded today. Yahoo indicates the last trade was on March 6.
I think we all ought to chip in and buy pj some tonic to wake him up and get him active after his winter hibernation.
tsar, to see something more informative than ???'s--at least, this worked in Windows XP Home--it may be necessary to go into the control panel, find Regional and Language Options, select the languages tab, and then check Install files for East Asian languages, followed by Apply.
I regret to say that I recently sold off the last of my Bs, a little under 3,000. I firmly believe that they're worth around 4,000. But I think I'm getting much deeper discounts on other stocks right now. (I'm curious to see whether a "Barron's run-up" is coming this week. But I'm a very poor trader, I'd probably find a way to lose money playing it.)
The BRKA board is a strange place. There are a lot of copycat IDs, and most of the traffic seems to be personal feuding. I rarely post there. PJ is not me, he is as real as you are. I don't think I can offer any proof of that. (To either of you.)
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.
