how many div paying funds, own brkb ? how many ETFs that pay divs, own brkb and are buying more ? How many investors seeking YIELD are thinking of buying brkb, this morning ?? I know, I know, I've made the point already BUT knew comers to brkville don't understand the learning curve in brkbs board room, tho I'm certain buffett makes the calls. It takes 5-6 years for buffett to make shareholder friendly moves. Keep LIMITING DEMAND for brkb, read this years letter and he'll splain to us and Lucy why size, global warming, and FOX news caused the underperformance the past 5 years. its very sad.
thanks for the updates z, but NOTHING will EVER compare with smart kids in foolsville making the bullish case for brkb trading up to 1.7 xs book with ZERO div, a 1.2 xs book buyback limit, and buffett constantly touting and promoting stocks OTHER THAN brkb, as buffett and munger get older and closer to the inevitable ?? its so embarrassing the children of the brkville madrassa may have a class action suit, child abuse, investing abuse , who knows what some creative lawyer may come up with but CLEARLY many nice kids who mean well have been damaged ?? sean, still with me bud ?
morning sean, buffett and munger think they can keep LIMITING potential DEMAND for brkb and not hurt the stock price ?? bro, I can cry in my tea every morning or I can make a joke now and then, what do u suggest ? I watched my mom age, I understand what happens to an aging brain, I'm ok with that FACT, but so many brkville madrassa mainliners repeat silly nonsense its heart braking. I cant wait to read this years letter, no doubt FILLED with charts showing brkb results since the 1800s, I'll be very impressed. Have a grand day.
aapl might spike right to 600 ? ucmtsu, no way.
for uncle warren. the atlantic.
brky, I made the case why buffett is restricting potential DEMAND for brkb. I say non div paying, the 1.2xs book restricted buyback limit, and buffett constantly promoting stocks other than brkb HURTS DEMAND for brkb. so make your case, what do I have wrong , since buffett doesn't take serious questions you are my only hope of understanding the buffett mind? Thank you.
morning brky, u didn't answer the question, will buffett make one of the 2 moves in q-1, 2014 or not ?
u were here in sept 2011 bro, if you can't recall what happened that's fine, lets move on to q-1 , 2014. Does buffett makes moves or not, IF, IF, I was certain he makes no moves I wouldn't be long.
++ He also understands supply and demand. ++
morning bro buffett is learning but IF he understood supply and DEAND he would have done what I suggested in 2006, split the stock, authorize a buyback at a substantial discount to IV, initiate a 1. 5 % div yield and hire a PR kid to make the bull case for brkb at least as well as I do. btw, thanks for being man enough to agree with me BEFORE buffett makes the moves. the other little girls in the brkville madrassa will drop the subject after bashing me and calling me names for years , just like in sept 2011. buffett is stubborn but he isn't stoooooopid !!
the fact that buffett is constantly PROMOTING stocks like ibm and byd
battery rather than making the bullish case for BRKB, and you see why I will
never give up on my uncle warren , the guy deserves and has earned my
guidance. SUPPLY and DEMAND matter, even if your two largest shareholders
are buffett and gates, period. I HOPE in this years annual letter read by
10's of millions worldwide , buffett doesn't claim brkb underperformed the
spy so badly the past 5 years because of the big bull market, global
warming,fox news, and other silly nonsense excuses, that would break my
heart. There is still time for buffett to man up and admit he was wrong and
make the right moves, that's my call. PLUS, buffett can still help to
educate his most loyal brkville hopeless devoid of independent thought
followers !! hc , buffett's favorite partner since 2002.
and haven't yet updated their THINKing. Here are my question's for today so
that you have all Sunday for deep critical thinking. In the past buffett has
said he didn't want, inferior investors, owning brkb. If buffett had his way
and ONLY accredited investors could buy brkb would brkb be higher or lower
today ? It took me 5 YEARS to get buffett to split brkb, which added to
liquidity which got brkb added to the spy, Russell index etc. IF buffett
never split the Bs would brkb be higher or lower today ? It took me 5 YEARS
to get buffett to authorize the buyback, without the buyback in place would
brkb be higher or lower TODAY ? More than 50 % of new net dollars being
invested EVERY DAY cant or wont buy brkb because it offers ZERO income. New
money might buy bonds, it might buy msft or appl , maybe funds that pay a
div , BUT, how many dollars invested Monday morning are looking for
investments that pay no income and have a buyback in place with a limit so
low it may never be breached ? IF buffett really wants to limit potential
DEMAND for brkb why doesn't he also say he only wants DEMS to buy brkb, no
republicans ? IF you keep limiting potential BUYERS aka, DEMAND for your
stock to a very limited pool of potential buyers your stock WILL lag spy,
its common sense 101, even if you took finance in the 1800s like munger and
buffett, this is indisputable. buffett and munger worked for brk FREE for 30
, THIRTY YEARS, 30 YEARS, and now they are selling off their life's work at
least 10 % too cheap due to stubbornness and borderline negligence by our
BODs, for not challenging buffett and mungers more goofy theories
buffett cares about the stock price bro, he just doesn't get it. HE is ANAL about NOT paying taxes that's why its so critical to get the H tax on divs passed. If,If, buffett could donate his divs free of tax brkb would yield 3 %, Monday morning and the stock would trade 5-10 % higher, simple .
bro, my main point is amending the buyback to authorize buybacks at a , substantial discount to IV and or with a 1.5 xs book limit. bro i'll lay you 6/5 grandma can get this. tell her you know of a company that doesn't pay a div and has a silly buyback limit. Monday when the market opens what % of money being invested is seeking a yield, either from bonds or stocks ? more than 50 % of money being invested cant or wont buy non div paying brkb and there are 100,000 shs to go every day FOREVER !!! monkeys being fed daily understand supply and demand, many in brkville, don't, it will change sooner than you think OR brkb will continue to lag just like i predicted 6-7 years ago. stay tuned.
admitting u were WRONG in sept 2011. It's your position that brkb will NOT pay a div in 2014 and brk will NOT increase the buyback limit in 2014, do I have that right ? Thank you.
++ We need to be certain he's fully embracing the short-term! ++
mornin brky, I always appreciate it when u share your ignorance so early, it makes my day !! Correct me if I'm mistaken but wasn't it your dad, I mean buffett, who proposed the 5 year test ? r u and daddy changing the rules ?
yahoo limited my post so I wont bother to make the case, we'll see what happens soon enough.
+++ HC, The dividend will come after Buffett's death when all his shares have been gifted to the respective charities. Share buybacks? I doubt he'll raise the buyback limit because why wouldn't he just keep the cash
for investments in companies like IBM and XOM that I know you love and sell at significant discounts to their respective IVs. +++
axp, seriously old bud, how many great capital allocation moves did buffett and munger make prior to sept 2011 and yet brkb was trading at BOOK or below ? How many sweetheart deals did buffett get us during the crash and yet STILL
the danSIN girls will be friendly tonight !!
friends, romans, and brkheads, did the SPLIT INCREASE DEMAND for brk ? man oh man, buffett could tell some of u kids glue is good for your brain just read fools expertville to prove it and many of u would agree. DEMAND for brkb is going to goose the stock to 1.7 xs book with no div and a 1.2 xs book limit, if i read this on expertsville too often, I, may end up doing glue, by the hour ??? very sad.
hi brky you left out the KEY move buffett should make bro, split brkb 100 for 1 to make it a pink sheet er !! i can get blinder, first jersey, and strattan to make a market in it ! brky thanks for posting I hope buffett reads u, THAT alone will guilt trip him into writing an op-ed, the silly things I said over the years that i wish to change so that kids like brky can learn and grow ! stay tuned brky, buffett may shock u again and take my advice, free of course. THINK sept 24th bro u know my post BEFORE he authorized the buyback because he HAD TO, HAD to bro. u know what I'm long lets see how it trades the next 6-8 weeks. thanks for the laughs.
