MJ,

You have mentioned previously that at some point, you have to sell gold + TLT - otherwise you end up riding it up and down endlessly.

With TLT close to all-time highs, are you looking to pocket profits - or let it ride?

Right now I am sitting as is in these uncertain times and keeping the pp intact for now until we get some clarity .....it is perfect for times like this when things are so screwed up .....

looking into berkshire class b for monday .....

i think up or down berkshire is situated to take advantage of things if they get worse and berkshire's poor choices have already taken its toll on the share price so it is down far more than say the s&p 500.... those billions can snatch up lots of companies if things get worse here so it is like a hedge .

this may be an example of a stock selling at a discount unlike most which are priced low because their business fell off.

this would be a longer hold as buying berkshire is really like buying a small mutual fund
