yep, he'll be 105 yrs. old and will be making an offer to buy the rest of the IBM shares.
I guess we should keep in mind that those posting the IBM nonsense are most likely bag holders
who immediately bought the stock when the WEB position became known.
Assuming that increased income equates to paying more taxes why would they follow that course?
Also BV is Buffett's measure of performance so definitely an incentive to increase t......won't have to move the goalpost for quite a while.
One 'expert' posted that because of the article it is clear that The Motley Fool is leading a bear raid on CBI.
Sean is correct. A few years back "The Brooklyn Investor" did a detailed analysis.....worth a read.
The IBM "roadmap" is in a shambles. Also always good for a laugh are when the 'experts' say that Buffett and Gates most certainly had discussed the purchase before it began.
Very few IBM posts on the expert board......perhaps the realization that they are long-term bag holders is starting to sink in.
The time to buy gold is when those pumping it fade from view. For those who remember many years back it was Howard Ruff whose subscription newsletter ended up going belly up. Wonder how many subscribers/viewers Peter Schiff still has?
If IBM were a wholly owned BRK sub what would Warren be saying? Not sure why but just recently he was critical of the operating performance of BNSF & Matt Rose.......how does IBM get a pass??
Variation of the classic LBO. Effectively took Heinz private and then via the merger with Kraft took it public again with huge gains. Little wonder that Buffett wanted to team up with 3G but one has to wonder what his response to partnering with them would have been 10-20 years ago.
If BV is the metric that one is using than perhaps they are looking ahead to the Heinz/Kraft transaction. On 7/1 Kraft shareholders will be voting on the deal so we are looking at a Q3 or O4 closing and the upward BV adjustment that will then take place.
I fully support you in your efforts to receive a higher minimum wage. You deserve it. GL.
Along with the cost cutting the focus will be on increasing Kraft's sales in foreign markets. Also after the Kraft/Heinz merger is completed how long will it be before they acquire another large company?
Gates was recently asked about IBM. Did you not listen to what he said?
