    Brokers versus BRKa

    In reply to several messages regarding why one should buy BRKa over BRKb, I guess the main reason is that the commission is
    less. I heard WB one time on TV, and he really didn't care too much for the fact that brokerages get the fees that they did (this
    was back before the discount brokerages and computer buys really took hold) I believe that was one of the main reasons stated
    for selling one large share rather than many small shares. It could also be one of the main reasons for why this stock isn't
    touted by brokers.....I'm sure they would rather go for the big commissions, so why tell you how good BRK is.
