Re: OT: CBI

Okay, this CBI story is getting *really* interesting now.

Clearly, a serious (and possibly completely fraudulent) short attack has really gotten traction now --aided by the collapse in oil prices.

I can't help but wonder if it's [more]

Re: Volume?

Thanks, Jim.

And you're right, it wasn't in the least bit snarky; it was a straight and simple question. (Unfortunately, like most any utterance, it's open to radical misinterpretation by idiots.)

And the instant after I post that question, I see this:

Re: Volume?

Seriously? I'd kind-of assumed that probably wasn't significant enough to be the cause.

Is entry into Singapore s big enough deal to draw so much attention?

And "the pop unwound" ?? What does that mean, exactly?

Volume?

Does anyone have any thoughts about the huge BRK trading volume of the past couple days?

Is it possible it's just a large overhang of standing sell-orders around the big milestone price of $150 ($225K)??



Thanks.

Re: Wow.

I don't especially care that much how it makes you feel.

Personally, *I* feel good when I get a chance to buy things at bargain prices --like BRK shares 5-plus years ago, when you were selling them-- and I also feel pretty good when I see [more]

Wow.

I don't know what the hell this is, but --after 6 years of waiting, since the last time BRK was reasonably priced-- I'm enjoying it.

A Little Historical Perspective:

I was cleaning up some old files yesterday, and came across a bookmarks-file from a browser I haven't used for some time.
Glancing through it, I saw that there was some BRK-related stuff in there, including a folder of bookmarked BRK board-posts [more]

Re: No sellers?

I've been selling small increments since we first reached about 90% of my rough estimate of IV.
Have tried to sell slightly increasing increments at roughly every 2% gain in P/IV.

Most recent sale yesterday at $148.15, which seems to [more]

Re: fusion power for trucks and autos?

It seems like there's more than one outlandish Fusion claim today.

Re: New - 50 minute Buffett interview

Yep. It didn't look like he misunderstood anything. He just continued his story about the bridge in Detroit.
Then the guy moved on, rather than pressing Warren to generalize from that story.

Re: Current BV:

Can I ask roughly what number you have for portfolio appreciation, quarter-to-date?

I assumed it should be close to $2B, but I haven't paid close attention lately.

Current BV:

Anyone happen to have an accurate updated estimate of 'instantaneous' BRK BV that they feel like sharing?

I'm guessing it must be up around $146K by now.

Current 'real' P/BV is probably ~ 1.45 now.

Getting there, but [more]

P/BV:

All the people who pompously proclaimed that BRK would never again approach 1.5 BV are looking pretty silly now, aren't they?

(The ones who sold out at 1.15 are looking a lot worse than silly.)

O/T: Renewable energy Revolution (NYT)--

Maybe nothing new here to those who closely follow energy issues, but some interesting stuff about developments and consequences in Germany --and what they may portend for the U.S.

Most specifically relevant to BRK may be the growing [more]
