No kidding as to the reasoning.  And the people who write this crap actually get paid?

I am guessing I can find this information in the 10K but do any of you have a link to the details of those derivatives like when they expire and at what index levels they start to kick in?
Love watching what people can accomplish through business.

Here is an interview with the guy. I think he is about a year or 2 late based on his rationales.

So they had a Buy on the stock when it was over $150K a couple years ago, but now say to sell it. Analysts are such idiots.

Actually I would like to buy BRK at about $100k, which I missed a few weeks ago.

Analysts do have some useful existence, to make money for me. I'd say bring them on!

Over the years, Business Week has been a great contrarian indicator.
