Good news for BRK - sounds like Chevron is bowing out and the OXY deal with BRK will go through

Couldn’t help but post this buffet quote:
Quote
Buffett says: "You know how our life span depends on how long our parents live? Well, I watch my mother's exercise and diet very carefully. She has 40,000 miles on her bike." Chuckling, he dives into sides of hash browns and spaghetti.

is on a pace to build more than 7,000 homes this year, including Highland Homes’ total.

Wow Clayton is building enough housing for an entire town in 1 year!

The Occidental deal looks very nice to me.  Long term value participation, or just take the money if not interested in a decade.  I think these sorts of deals are way better than rebuying shares.  To be hoped for: another nine such opportunities!

Or just one (of size). I'm hoping for an opportunity to recapitalize FNMA and FMCC.

Don't expect they'd be allowed to invest more than $20B or so, but Buffett could ride off into the sunset if he was able to invest the entire required $135B+.
