  • Berkshire Bought Deere: Should You, Too? [View article]
    The article should say BRK likes Deer. Even if this was not Buffetts idea, he is the CEO of the company. I doubt he would ok $330 million buy of DE without having some say.

    Dealraker, Lewis, Radakovich, Compounder,

    I thought Buffett was the CEO of BRK? Maybe the article should read Berkshire Hathaway likes deer". I can't imagine BRK owning about $330 million in DE, without the CEO approving or knowing about it.

  • Berkshire Bought Deere: Should You, Too? [View article]
    Dealraker, Lewis, Radakovich, Compounder,

    I suspect the article might be better reading "Berkshire Hathaway likes Deer". So even if it is others in the company bought Deer, I thought Buffett ran BRK. I suspect if one is going to own about $330 million of a company, the CEO would know what is being bought and would give his approval to buy it.

  • The Irony Of Bank Of America's Hustle Case [View article]
    Bently,

    I believe that BAC is the fourth largest position of BRK, if the shares he holds are converted to common stock. It is possible that WB does not wish to make BAC his 3rd, 2nd or 1st largest position.

  • Retirement Strategy: Sorry Warren, But You're A Cheapskate [View article]
    To the Author;

    You already did a good job with your question, in getting people to think about what is important to them (to dividend or not). If you do not care about being in a popularity contest, than quit responding to all the remarks. WB has already said he is a capital allocator (can we do it better?) and will not pay a dividend, so people who only want an income check stay away.

    About 9 of the stocks that Berkshire Hathaway owns, pay no dividends. He does not only buy stock that pay dividends, case in point is Direct TV. I think this comes to about 20% of the public companies he owns, pay no dividends. In other words, the companies he buys are not only dividend paying stocks.

  • Stop The Presses: Academics Confirm That Buffett's Success Is No Mystery [View article]
    I am not sure, but I believe 5 years ago or so, WB sold a European put on an index that expired in 20 years, so he could collect the premium, assuming the European market would be higher.

    I think WB did buy, by selling some European puts on an index, maybe 5 years ago. I think he still holds them. My understanding is they had an expiration date 20 years out and he was collecting the premium when he sold them.

  • You Had Better Buy This REIT Before Another REIT Does [View article]
    Mike904

    You said, "Nobody notices this because passive real estate investors are mostly idiots."

    If you bought "O" in December of 1994, you would have paid about $8.56 per share. Today it sells for about $43.75 per share. During this period, you would have been earned a growing income. I do not know what they increased the dividend by during this time, but over 10 years they have increased the dividend by about 4.4% annually. Not to bad. This is not the only example out there. So I am confused by the idiot comment in regards to passive RE or REITS, or maybe ignorance is bliss.

  • Why Not Hedge Whole Foods By Investing In A Whole Foods' Landlord? [View article]
    Brad,

    One way to look at the hedge suggestion is as follows; If you were going to invest 100% in WFs maybe you now invest 50% in WFs and 50% in REG. So maybe not a hedge as you say in the true sense of the word, but a hedge in regards to upping income and participating in the grocery chain investment. My actual question was concerning the preferred stocks you mention. Do you know the call price and date, and they could be called? This would potentially mean the Pfds are yielding less than stated.
