    Did you just prove my point for me. What I said was show me any time frame of 5 1/2 years that Warren Buffet had a negative return. The post you had showed a 4% total return, did you think that was negative?

    If you'll check your stock figures back to 1/98 you'll find that BRKA ended at 50,300 a share. So they only had a run up to 80,900 a share in roughly 4 and a half months. Guess that doesn't have anything to do with anything.

    You probably are right about JA having a larger personal stake, but I'd say that he also probably has the lowest per share cost basis of most anyone too. When he was recently excerising options at roughly $9 a share even at today's prices he has a very nice gain.

    In any case thanks for your imput, I was hoping that you would give me some insite or reasons why this stock might go up in the next 18 months or so.

    I wish you and yours good health, all good things and better investing.
