Baby Buffett: Will Bill Ackman Resurrect The Ghost Of Howard Hughes And Build A Corporate Empire?
dear uncle warren, if you support ginnys pay raise can you tell use WHO you think hasn't earned a raise in the past 3 years? does toddfinance think ginny earned a pay raise ? Does anyone at cnbc know WHO ginny is ? Does becky know ibm is public ? WHO owns the other 92 % of ibm ?
40 %, 75 %, 100 % ??
++ IBM (IBM)
Virginia M. Rometty
2014 $17.9 +28%
2013 $14.0 ++
seems to me I might have said, look pal, I would love to see you double your pay, following the year ibm makes 20 $$ a share, until then, why not freeze yourself, and find a way to make it on 14 mil a year ? Its a true mystery why uncle blesses failure with huge rewards ? IF the people running the DOGS of the dow get away with this how much should the top 5 Dow performers get in pay increases ??
bro, you didn't SEE the interview ? Gates HATES, HATES ibm, and its future prospects,period. u cant just make things up.
barrons, i'll repeat NOT a good space for retail investors.
VERY strange , if only he would allow SUBSTANTIVE QUESTIONS ?? gates is not a happy camper but what else can he say ?? ibm over brkb, ucmtsu,no way.
the Brooklyn investor.

hcnutcase, I was travelling and missed your post, good to see you old bud !! I'll add you to the list of shareholders who may have voted for one or more of my proposals in 2006. hbird too ! strat, beachlawyer, geepod, lol, may have supported a few as well ? in expertsville when I was posting there I doubt one expert in foolsville would have supported me. Gates i'm sure would have supported me tho I doubt he would have been allowed to admit it. take care old bud.
Do you recall my FSFE posts back then, Foundation Sales Forever Effect posts. in 2007 if I hired a lawyer and made the three simple proposals I made back then ,and got bashed 24x7 by todd and other experts,
1- split the Bs 50 for 1, so brk would be included in the spy,
2.- authorize a buyback at, material discounts to IV,NOT BV,
3- initiate a 1 % div yield and raise it with the rate of inflation yearly,
I would have gotten 3 votes, me, jad, and K, maybe , MAYBE , a few other great thinkers in brkville would have voted with me. AT MOST 1%, that's why I didn't bother. Buffett gave away 10s of billions of dollars of lost value by causing the foundations to sell way under fair value for years !! Its a shame he never did get supply and demand he deserved better but he doesn't appear interested in debate on key issues. he locks in and it takes panic, like sept 2011 when brkb traded below BV , to get him to move.
dickey, keep it real pal. 95 % of brkheads would drink liquid crack if uncle told them it was health food !~! Would shareholders have EVER voted for a 50 for 1 split OR an authorized buyback if i proposed those shareholder friendly moves in a vote, before buffett blessed the moves ? There is very little independent thinking in brkville, what little there is , you read right here bro. If brkb ever trades down near 1.2 xs BV, buffett may be forced to rethink a div to avoid buying back brkb, by goosing the stock again, I doubt it happens any other way while he's healthy and in charge.
++ cash dividend ++
uncle retired and moved to Nevada ? He hasn't called me yet ? r u expecting a div in the next 10 years if buffett is still running brk ?
++And, to beat my critics to the punch, yes, if you plan, like WEB, to hold your equities "forever", the preceding does not apply to you.++
morning jad, sadly, buffett didn't understand in 2006 that HE, yes, uncle warren, was turning into a SELLER forever, i'm not sure he even understands that concept that well today ?? The foundations sold over 10 BBBBillion of HIS shs around BV, go figure ?
