Uh, gee, Max, maybe because we don't want to pay taxes while we're waiting for the "sell or die" parts. Maybe because investors allocate their portfolios different ways for different reasons. Maybe because Buffett has accumulated a record that seems to indicate that he's better at it than I am. And unlike most public companies of dubious competence (even integrity), I think Buffett has the credibility to decide who knows best what to do with the dividends.
I'm pretty sure that Berkshire Hathaway qualifies as a low-expense investment too. I can figure out its actual expense ratio, but the typical mutual fund makes that a little harder to determine with their turnover & tax-efficiency issues.
Ya know, I've noticed that you're extremely good at picking out the bad/negative/problem aspects of just about every subject on this board. I look forward to the time when you can suggest more positive solutions without making it sound like a patronizing or condescending dictum.
