1,000,000,000 of AAPL

Will be interesting to see if Buffett nudges up the AAPL share count to the nice round number of 1,000,000,000.

Kind of like he did with KO. I don’t think that was a coincidence. Would help make a statement (to his successor) that Apple should be viewed as a permanent holding, like the wholly owned businesses. (Would also make it nice and easy for Berkshire shareholders to keep track of the value of Berkshire’s Apple holdings).


Why not? All Berkshire has to do is use the dividends to buy additional shares.
