Cost of CBI?

We own 9% of it and are topped out.

Any idea what the avg share price might be?

If they loved it at $XX, they must really, really , really love it at <$40!

Falling knife anyone?

OT: CBI

Re: 15 year anniversary

It's as much just dumb luck i'm sure...

15 year anniversary

Had a little time on my hands this morning so i decided to research my time as a BRK shareholder.

I made an initial investment on January 27 2000 for B shares at $1716. If my math is correct that's roughly $34/sh split [more]

Re: OT new highs and lows

I own it....and the big question that keeps me from adding more to this antiquated behemoth; what can one really, really, really expect out of it in the next 10 years annualized?
