    Last year a poster said the stock was going to $75. Now its $180. Remember that when you read predictions especially on boards. BRKB is up 22.5% in the last 12 months vs approx 15% for the S & P. Both are good enough for me. I love reading articles about how Buffett has lost it. I am happy with a 22.5% return over 12 months from a company whose stock price is less volatile than the rest of the market.

    For Uncle Warren, from one of his biggest fans me, I put this on FB.

    "He noted that since Forbes created its first list of the 400 richest Americans in 1982 — Buffett was worth just $250 million then — some 1,500 different people have been included."

    Buffett turned 250 million into 80 BILLION TAX FREE via his holdings in Berkshire Hathaway. Since brkb doesnt pay a dividend he hasnt even had to pay tax on dividend income not one dime in tax. I LOVE BUFFETT ,love the guy, but lets keep it real. He gets HUGE tax writes offs for gifting these shares to the 5 foundations he supports, 1/2 goes to the Gates Foundation. The foundations enjoy the proceeds from the sales of these shares TAX FREE. Would reasonable american voters agree the foundations should pay a flat tax on the proceeds of these sales, say 15 % or even 10 % ? The FED would raise about 15 TRILLION, TRILLION, from this very reasonable tax going forward. The money would be used to rebuild our public education system, offer our Vets the best health care money can buy, pay down our debt, and rebuild america. Would any candidate from either party get 75 million votes with that simple FAIR plan ? If Sanders or any DEM understood the facts it would be all over, they win in a landslide. IF Trump and his Goldman Sach pals dont go after the WEALTH , the generational hoarded wealth in america, the DEMS will but they wont be as kind as i am, Sanders might go for 20 % or more ?

    John, time to write a piece on this issue bud. I'll proof it free !! lol.

    Vanguard Warns of Decade of Muted Returns Despite Strong Growth
    The world’s biggest mutual fund company says it’s surprised by the global economy’s strength this year, but that doesn’t mean it’s more optimistic about the investment outlook.

    I always find it interesting to see how Berkshire shares get slammed because people assume that Berkshire will face massive losses due to hurricanes Harvey & Irma, so here are a few things to think about....

    1 - BRK writes minimal flood insurance, so most of the flood related damage will not impact BRK.
    2 - Geico insures lots of cars in FL and TX, and some of those will be total losses, but a $20K car is a lot different than a $200K house.
    3 - A lot of the post-hurricane rebuilding will directly benefit BRK owned companies. A few examples:
    a) Lots of rebuilding materials/supplies will move by rail. BRK owns BNSF, the largest freight railroad in the country.
    b) Cars will be replaced. BRK owns a major chain of auto dealerships.
    c) People will charge lots of rebuilding expenses on credit cards. BRK is a major shareholder in AMEX
    d) Banks will make lots of loans to people and businesses to rebuild. BRK is a major shareholder in both BofA and Wells Fargo.
    e) Lots of spoiled food will need to be replaced. BRK owns a huge percentage of Karft/Heinz

    Just some things to think about... Make your own investment decisions.... What Mother Nature taketh, Father Warren gives back....

    Warren, you are mentioned on page 263 of Hitlery's new book. She says the E is for cheap. She blames you for not putting up a billion to elect her. WTZ?
