Though I own some BRK, I never look to see what's in it. I figure it's a conservative holding, and while I don't expect it to really outperform the S&P over the long run, I hope it will weather downturns better than the S&P. Will see how it does in this bear market. I did not know it's so much Apple. 42%! OK, good thing I don't own any Apple stock in addition.

As promised (threatened?), I sold a lot of call options today. 37 contracts to be exact, netting me $2500. Expiry on this Friday 6/24, except for a few on 7/15.

The futures are down as I write this. So, I will not get a chance to sell any more options. That's it. Back to the bear market. Down we go.

Everything from railroad giant BNSF, to Geico insurance, small guys like See's Candy, Dairy Queen and hosts of others.

A couple of days before the bottom of the 2009 market, I wrote post on here detailing why I thought Berkshire was a super safe bet, and was all but certain to be a lot more valuable in a couple of year than it was currently trade for. Berkshire is my largest individual holding

I think Berkshire valuation is starting to get attractive. But, I'm no where near calling a bottom for Berkshire yet.

Berkshire is down 25% from its March 31 high

Perspective, context!

Look at this link - set it to one year, and then scroll back so it ends at ~ 30MARCH2022.

BRK is ~ +38% compared to VTI ~15%. So BRK can drop more than VTI from that point, and still be ahead over the longer term.

For 1 year to 21JUNE2022, BRK outperforms VTI ~-2% vs ~-14%.
Go back to 1999, BRK leads the way almost all the time.

Those charts include divs (for VTI, BRK is no divs).

Does not count the businesses owned.

So what number do you think is the bottom or close enough that you would consider it a buy ?

I went to the annual meeting once, and I was very impressed with how the two of them could keep sipping diet coke through the Q&A without having to go to the bathroom.
