Notes from our meeting with Warren coming soon….really. Onto the news….More bidding on EBAY for lunch with Warren – Join the GSB Buffett Group and you may just get it for free. (Or the cost of a plane ticket to Omaha). From thestreet.com, another shoddy article on the Berkshire dollar short position. (Why is it that journalists seem to think that Berkshire is only holding euros – when we know that he has significant Australia and New Zealand exposure, and probably the Pound as well?) And Bloomberg News offers this quote “Berkshire Hathaway is probably the riskiest company in America today because it's one heartbeat away from a substantial diminution in value." Right. Bono meets with Warren and gets great advice, 'Don't appeal to the conscience of America, appeal to its greatness, and I think you'll get the job done'. Julius Baer acquisition rumors floating around too, although conflicts of interest seem to make it an unlikely candidate.
