Don't you think Its the cow owners responsibility to prevent cows from wandering on to the high way? In case of TRN it is the drivers' responsibility to drive sober within speed limits. TRN is responsible for complying with the Codes and customer specifications.
Is that a statement or a question? Berkshire is a steady stock with no large swings. If you need cash sell a few shares.
In 1996, Buffett created Class B shares (BRK.B), offering investors the ability to invest in Berkshire Hathaway for, initially, one-thirtieth the price of a Class A share of stock. A 50-to-one stock split in 2010 sent the ratio to one-1,500th. Class B shares carry correspondingly lower voting rights as well. Buffet stated that the purpose of creating the Class B shares was to give smaller investors the opportunity to invest directly in Berkshire Hathaway, rather than only participating indirectly through buying mutual funds that mirror Berkshire Hathaway's holdings.
One benefit of holding Class B shares is flexibility. If an investor owns just one share of Class A and is in need of some cash, the only option is to sell that single share, even if its price far exceeds the amount of capital the investor needs to access. In contrast, a holder of Class B shares can liquidate part of his or her Berkshire Hathaway holdings, just up to the amount needed to meet cash flow requirements. Another benefit of Class B is that its much lower price means that BRK stock can be passed to heirs without triggering the gift tax as passing Class A shares does.
My thinking only so discount it : The primary reason for creating B shares was to help share holders of acquired companies to differ taxes, not every share holder had a large enough position to get even a single share of BRK if they wanted shares in lieu of cash, this way they could be given shares of BRKB without tax consequence, i.e. taxes differed.
Additionally A class shares can be converted to B class but not the other way around.
Another good reason to buy Berkshire is Warren Buffet's commitment to buy back shares if they fall below 20% (not sure if 20% is exactly correct its some where around that) of book Value
Clarification, Warren Buffett: If BRK drops below 120% Book value, he would buy back, essentially a " PUT" is in place.
Perhaps you will find true conspiracies if you researched Republicans. If you keep looking for FOX FABRICATED FAIR tales, you will spend you life time going in circles.
Do you think you can convince anyone that you are trying to inform them? What is the purpose of your posts? Talk show hosts will sell you any garbage you are willing to listen to. They laugh their way to the bank. Enough said, do something productive with your skills.
Sure they are qualified in their area of expertise and education. However, Hillary Clinton is far better qualified to be the President of USA.
You are probably a smart and a good person, but you are very naïve to believe a "Politician" and "Fair and Balanced TV" , If you are so worried, go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and protest.
Sorry to disappoint you, Savage is a paid mercenary he gets paid to instigate. He is only interested in his $$$$$$$$$. If you make more than $1 million a year by all means vote for Republicans, however if you make less than 500K you are being fooled by these talk show hosts, they make millions while making you their tool for spreading their misinformation.
Every Republican candidate, talk show host have gone way over board, due to lack of their own ideas. You will convince no one with attacks on Hillary Clinton. Give us your ideas, let Hillary define her own policy. I have not heard a single negative statement from Ms. Clinton or an attack on any candidate.
Can you name one positive idea from Republicans? Why not let Hillary Clinton define her ideas, are you her spokes person? Speak for your own party!
We would have been a far better and prosperous country had Kerry won. He would have ended the war early, we would have peace and prosperity for all Americans.
Maligning the reputation of a brave purple heart medal winner, and enhancing the reputation of a person who never saw any action! What has become of us, are we that naïve? or has Right Wing TV and talk shows has damaged any semblance of truth in political process?
Where are the "Death panels" ? Had Republicans cooperated we would have " single payer" system or at least a Public Option. Who says that you can't keep your Doctor? PPOs, HMOs including MEDICARE advantage always limited the choice of Doctors to control costs. Some Doctors charge more, if you want to see them you can pay the difference to upgrade your policy to include them.
How does that impact Boeing stock? Go protest @ 1600 Pennsylvania Ave! Enough politics already
Why are Republicans demanding Hillary Clinton's emails. Every politician who demands that must also turn over all their emails, we want to know the misinformation they are intentionally peddling. Why not ask every one in previous administration to turn over their emails for entire 8 years.
Term Limits, only Public funds for campaigns. A used car salesman has more credibility.
Mud slinging is the only reason. Republicans know they will lose big time in the next election, Hillary has coattails that will win Senate Majority for Democrats. House won't be that easy due to gerrymandering. Stop condoning Republicans for these witch hunts. Win the elections with your agenda, this goes for BOTH parties, tell us your agenda let both parties define themselves. I hope they hold every talk show host, and all media responsible, first amendment should not protect intentional character assassination.
Nothing will ever please the Right Wing, some still believe President Obama was born in Kenya. Answering biased innuendos of those who hate her is just a waste of time. Ask your Republicans if they are willing to swear that their investigations are seeking the truth! I know they won#$%$ all political. They know Hillary Clinton will win the elections. Don't vote for her, if you think she is not best qualified. Compare her agenda and honesty with the future Republican candidate.
