Buy @ 276.40

I added some B shares today at $276.40 - from my calculations is the best “deal” I have ever had with BRK (in terms of P/B).

I added some B shares today at $276.40…

Nice number. 1.2001 times last known book, if I did the math right.
Above the old buyback threshold, but the portents are good…somebody check this thread in 2-3 years.
Things certainly might get cheaper–I expect so–but kudos.

Seems like a great deal.
Though, surprisingly to me, it has been cheaper than that on a couple of metrics about 15% of the time since the credit crunch started.

I was buying recently, though I didn’t match your number.
I’ve increased my position 18% in the last week.

Jim - I bought shares 4.20.20 @$186. What was the P/B in that time frame?

Wow! That’s BIG!

And I was lucky enough to be able to sell the Calls I bought “too much” yesterday — and to buy them back 15% cheaper at the end of the day. But those calls amount to just 2.5% of what I have as shares.

All the way in December of 2021, thats a whopping 6 months ago, you could buy Berkshire for about $275.
