    A question to long term holders of Berk. I truly understand, own and have followed it since the late 90s. Yes it is now a great hold at all times high when the rest is bleeding. I question somethings. The logic of some selling some cvx and all of costco the, buys of airlines when it goes against what they think of the them. The buying and selling of gold last year. The train business is worth almost 200 billion. I do not think of ,the actual late getting into aapl as legendary It was 3 years too late at minimum . But of the misses in google and amazon as criminal ..Well sort of. But I left a question for those who knowledgeable and open to thought. Why is buying back Berkshire stock seemed as such an inert move? There are and have never been dividends. So that does mean nothing to pay out. At least 20 billion could have and should be used for buying companies. I understand their belief that at the moment companies are over valued .But I think it is the mistake they did with Kraft and the largely overpaid precision parts company they purchased years back. Ido not understand buy backs,,seriously. I want us the owners to understand there is a btter use for the 35 billion or so than just buying back shares. Even at the least buy some more quality bluechips shares in any company that they believe in. With that said,, boy oh boy are the next few years looking like 1999 again for Berkshire. Most likely will reach the trillion cap mark in under 18 months. I hope they handle the sale of some apple shares and explain more clearly to wall street the intrinsic value of their insurance, energy, rails, health business which mostly not shown up on top 10 holdings. How accounting rules affect GAP and now GAAP are nuts to understand. I just feel that market cap now should be nearer to 900 billion and the buy backs truly are lost on me.

    How many here don't understand the weakness of GAAP accounting when looking at Berkshire and its 300 billion investment portfolio? In 2020, roughly half of the earnings were mark to market gains on the portfolio. $42.5 billion earned with $26.7 billion in increased unrealized gains.

    Sad to hear Lou Simpson has passed. Buffett held him in high regard.

    Simpson retired from Berkshire in 2010 and founded SQ Advisors with his wife, Kimberly Querrey, the following year. The firm, based in Naples, Florida, planned to manage money for Simpson’s family and friends, as well as outside charities, Simpson said in an interview with Bloomberg News at the time.

    somebody needs to educate Howard on Dividends

    it is obvious he was absent when W.B. explained how that works

    (Dividends are ordinary income, and capital gains have a lower tax rate by the feds)
    Bearish

    Back into BRK.B after a year's absence. Feels like I'm back home again. The best stock I have ever owned since the 50 for 1 split a decade ago. Wish Warren and Charlie great health and prosperous 2022.

    WOW! Buffet is selling 5 year bonds in Japan paying only .2%. That's amazing. Buffet can use that Money for way higher returns. He's still buying back stock, but I would think less at these higher prices. However, everyone is starting to pile in. The elephant gun will come out once the market really tanks, and the recession hits. It's already started.
    Bullish

    “If you plan to eat hamburgers throughout your life and are not a cattle producer, should you wish for higher or lower prices for beef?

    Likewise, if you are going to buy a car from time to time but are not an auto manufacturer, should you prefer higher or lower car prices?

    These questions, of course, answer themselves. But now for the final exam: If you expect to be a net saver during the next five years, should you hope for a higher or lower stock market during that period?

    Many investors get this one wrong. Even though they are going to be net buyers of stocks for many years to come, they are elated when stock prices rise and depressed when they fall. In effect, they rejoice because prices have risen for the “hamburgers” they will soon be buying. This reaction makes no sense. Only those who will be sellers of equities in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise. Prospective purchasers should much prefer sinking prices.”

    The end of money 💰 printing by the federal reserve is going to produce a major bear 🐻 market that will last for years as they printed for 12 years. Many will lose most of their fabulous once in a lifetime gains because they refuse to see the 12 year party 🎉 is over.. check out lulu. You wont be able to hide in financials as this bear 🐻 is going to take everything down with it as the money supply contracts... in 1932 the stock market fell 85% and took 30 years to recover. This market is going to drop at least 50% in the next couple of years. Capitulation a ling time away but you will see I know what i am talking about which is why all rallies are being sold by those with common sense ie big players leaving retailers holding the bag...
