++ Thanks so much for your thoughtful question for the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting. I received thousands of questions and tried to ask as many as I could. Even those questions that were not asked were very helpful in understanding and focusing on the biggest issues of interest.
My deepest thanks for taking the time to contribute to today's discussion.

hi, buffett always makes the case that IV far exceeds the stock price yet uses a 1.2 xs BV buyback limit. IF buffett and munger agreed that IV exceeded stock price by 75 % BUT the stock was trading at 1.21 xs BV, brkb couldn’t buyback one share. WHY use the BV hurdle for buybacks , why not amend the SEC filing to authorize buybacks at, material discounts to IV ? Thank you HC. Henderson NV.
session , maybe the afternoon 1/2 will present a miracle ? Something substantive may be asked , by mistake and maybe buffett wont dodge it ?
Investment professionals or vrx, lol. Ackman can't be a happy camper.
for everything, doing what you are doing into market highs with the vix at 13 is, punishment, waiting to happen. good luck bro I hope you don't get punished.
To sell I b m at the high got filled. Thanks.
Is running out of steam. Let's see what kind of volume Brkb trades Monday and Tuesday its been lite the past few weeks.
The real story.
I was hoping CNBC would ask I con , when did cook find out u sold did u call him ? Carl did you ever trade aapl options while u were long a a p l shares? CNBC gets used by these hedge fund gangsters like a 20 dollar crack, ho ho ho ! CNBC viewers get abused if they don't sell into guest bull sheet ,
I con out of aapl that's y you can't follow these jokers.
Should open the envelope and let choice number one do the job.
Marry ginni , pathetic.
Thanks jad. U and I have been having this debate for 10 years now, d I v vs buybacks. Since Brkb was 50 pre split I said , buying back Brk at, material discounts to iv is a no brainer , Buffett was busy building his empire, a huge mistake. He left 10s of billions on the table too bad the foundations should have enjoyed 20 percent higher proceeds from sales.
Jad, every share I b m buys back today is a share they don't have to pay 30 plus dollars in d I v s on the next five years ,no ? IF ginni believes buyback with every dime u can.
Mornin jad. IF ginni would have said, we are raising the dividend one cent , and using the cash to buyback our stock below 150 with both hands. IF I b m is not above 150 at year end I will not accept one option until it is , period, if the stock is below 150 I refuse all option grants going forward, she would have had me. For now the, free roll, continues, she always wins. Good luck to others, she ain't got game, imo.
Maybe yahoooo doesn't want it's viewers to think lol, that would explain a lot. I'm on my apple phone every time I type I b m it turns into, inn, ha.
