But you have to go to your work and also drop your kids to school. I have always said that big money thinks and acts differently — that’s how they become “big money.” I have a friend who is in this category.

Buyers who previously purchased a house from you and would like to move to another may call for your help. Now the lingering question in my mind is what is a loan like this worth, specifically one that has an indefinite term and a zero interest rate (assuming a long term combined ratio of 100%)? Second, the loan has a negative interest rate. C/d. “PV” is the present value, “C” is the annual investment return, and “d” is the discount rate. There are websites, blogs, analysts, TV programs, cell groups following Buffett’s every investment moves and hence whenever Berkshire makes a move, a lot of people will simply charge and buy with the Sage of Omaha. You would basically be betting that none of these factors will change. Condominiums are popular and will remain so and grow in popularity in the future. Do what you want with that but the implications are clear.

Make your own assumptions but Buffett makes it clear that the true value of this liability is dramatically less than the accounting liability. 40,000 is not sufficient to purchase a revenue property free and clear. 18 billion to purchase all of NV Energy and a major interest in H.

They continually make good long term investments, which ensure good long term results. After all, you could always own an index fund and be assured of S&P results. Either BRK is cheap, the S&P 500 is overvalued, or some combination of the two. The market is currently willing to value the latest hot tech stock at absurd levels while BRK underperforms the broader market. This is interesting because BRK is selling at 131% of book value. In 2013 BRK was paid 3.9% to hold this loan. 77 billion revolving fund (or loan). If our revolving float is both costless and long-enduring, which I believe it will be, the true value of this liability is dramatically less than the accounting liability. So what is the true value the float? Purchases at that level benefit continuing shareholders because per-share intrinsic value exceeds that percentage of book value by a meaningful amount. As I’ve long told you, Berkshire’s intrinsic value far exceeds its book value.

When Berkshire’s book value is calculated, the full amount of our float is deducted as a liability, just as if we had to pay it out tomorrow and could not replenish it. Berkshire’s extensive insurance operation again operated at an underwriting profit in 2013 – that makes 11 years in a row – and increased its float.
