    Downside to 79 ?

    Well, 79 is about 110% of most recently reported book, so that is a reasonable assumption if one assumes that equity prices in general will just continue to slog along where they are now. If a major correction was to occur, then BRK's book value would fall as well, and WEB has indicated that he has reserved the right to preferentially buy other stuff over supporting the buyback. So hypothetically speaking, the bottom could be quite a bit lower, in my opinion.
