To be fair, Berkshire Hathaway is a perfect example of a growth stock. It's certainly the antithesis of a dividend stock.
Full disclosure: I own one share of Berkshire Hathaway and I am waiting for Buffett to die.

At this point all I can suggest is not holding your breath!

The major investors seem to think that the Buffett Premium is just about zero, and that he might even be holding the stock back. But then a lot of people felt that way about Sokol, too, and his departure didn't seem to do much for the share price.

If true this would be an interesting fact in a supposedly efficient investment-marketplace.

Liquidating growth stocks to live on is the same as asset allocations. Sometimes you will be up and liquidate less and other times down and liquidate more. But overall you should be OK.

It is my hypothesis not a fact. Sort of like a efficient market is an hypothesis. On one side you have a bunch of folks with a PHd arguing that it is on the other side you have Warren Buffett and bunch of other followers of Graham arguing that it isn't that efficient.

My money and I believe your is on the side of the billionaires.

Since switching mainly to Target Retirement in jan 2006 I have been remiss in watching Wellesley stock holdings - formerly one of my favorite places for dividend stock ideas for my DRIP plans.

heh heh heh - Saint's didn't even make the playoffs last year - I may have to pick over -'my few good stocks'. . Dividends played a big part of income in my early years of ER.
