We have a separate topic in the Berkshire forum for this discussion, gents.

Can you give us the link to the proper place to answer questions about Berkshire’s weighting in the S&P 500 please?  Seems fairly general but if it must be in a dedicated thread so be it

globalfinancepartners,

No, I can't. But you and bizaro could create it! - The topic at hand here is certainly worth separate discussion! [ : - ) ]

John,

This is the nature of message boards and the internet generation that we’re in. The first page (headline) gets all the attention. Page 2 maybe but almost never page 15 or 16. I sometimes dig up past discussions to revive them with current happenings but that’s the exception. We’re dealing with memory recall and impatience. The impatience is with saying what I want to say, no matter in which topic so long as it’s on the top of page 1.

Interesting...I did some mental arithmetic and over 43 trading days, they have sold just over 3 Million shares worth $500 million.
