I completely agree and glad he is willing to be unique, shun terrible analysts, and do a terrific job.  Just interested in his thoughts on the industry and UI but I guess their product line tells the story

Thanks for the article.  Pera is definitely a character. 

"Mr. Pera's company ultimately filed plans for a residence on the site by Seattle architect Eric Cobb, which called for a 17,000-square-foot, 70-foot-high building made largely of glass and granite. Community Board 1's Landmarks and Preservation Committee initially rejected the proposal late last year, but later approved a modified version, according to Bruce Ehrmann, chair of the committee who had criticized the original design as hostile.

"The original proposal was intended to shelter whoever was the purchaser from the neighborhood," Mr. Ehrmann said. "The lower levels looked like the ramparts of a medieval fort.""

Amazing multi-bagger.  Extremely focused on customers, and owns 90% of the float.  Wow.  Very few people own this.  You'd have to wonder why he still stays public...

I don't know why he stays public. There are few owners and fewer all the time the way they keep buying back shares.  It was trading at $150-$160 a few weeks ago and if the past is any indication I'd bet they bought back some shares under $160.

It appeared like the main benefit of switching to NYSE was the ability to buy back even more shares. Who knows what happens when he nears the NYSE's limit on outstanding shares

If I'm reading the requirements correctly, the NYSE requires  $100M in publicly held shares, so for a $12+B company that is less that 1% that needs to be publicly held.  It also requires a minimum number of publicly held shares, but he could split the stock if he needed to in order to keep buying back.  So he can stay listed until he owns about 99%, more if the marketcap increases.
