Re: Wow.

I have owned BRK for over 30 years.

First case where a fellow fool has held the stock as long as my wife, who had her husband buy Brk in 1982. Congratulations. And on top of that you have bought antiques, too.

Re: No sellers?

Anyone have sell targets in mind based on price or price/book ratio?
