Good article.  Thanks Ballin.  Interestingly, WEB's personal
portfolio reportedly amounted to @1% of his total wealth 8 to 10 years ago. Now it's up to about 5% including only US stock holdings, not including foreign stocks like Posco.  This implies that he has generated @ 20%+ after tax returns in recent years while the S&P 500 has gone nowhere.  Good job Warren.  How many other long only fund managers managing large portfolios have done as well?

The article by Robert Miles does not make sense. Buffett says that over 98% of his net worth is in Berkshire (in 2009 annual report, released March 1st). It is impossible that <2% of Buffett's assets are worth $1.8B, because this would mean that Buffett's Berkshire holdings should be $90B, which is obviously wrong.

In a letter to Paulson he state that 100M is 20% of it's net worth outside BRK... so I guess he's in the 500M.

Don't forget he has been giving his BRK away to the Gates Foundation and others.
