The kid probably has Brk shares under  her name, maybe even more shares that what you own. I think she has every rights to ask questions, same rights as everyone else.
Even though her parents may have helped with the questions, she still participated.
You guys need to learn more from Warren and Charlie, on their having a generous spirit toward people and have a kind heart. .

Besides it’s great to bring down the average age in the arena. All 3 kids who asked questions spoke lucidly with the exception of pronouncing entrepreneur. It was quite refreshing and perhaps life changing experience for each of them.

I think kids asking questions is fine. It's not as if adults are  asking great questions all the time. One question asked by a kid had 3 pages of write up as a back ground before getting into actual question. That can get annoying.

I think question about ceiling of 10% holding was interesting. I think, Munger's eager response indicates that they really want to increase their position in banks such as WFC, USB and may be others if allowed.

It's interesting that Todd and Ted were not at the meeting. Or at least they did not admit they were there...  ::)

The FAA’s frequently answered answers during the meeting were,

1. Thanks for your suggestions on xyz but we’re not about to change.
2. We’re not in the investment advisory business
3. How come you didn’t figure out anti-gravity 😂

BRK  -3% today -looks like the annual post shareholder meeting stock price slump has started for BRK. Maybe another opportunity to buy shares in the $195 range.
