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.
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.)
I thought your posts were enigmatic before. Now you are posting in Chinese, Korean or Japanese. It will be very hard to distill the essence of your messages. I guess I will have to subscribe to an online dictionary. I do know an old guy from North Korea who speaks Korean, Chinese and Japanese. Maybe I can get him to translate after you master the language. Do you plan to abandon English entirely?
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.
