You can go to the annual meeting even if you are a class B shareholder.  Think about it logically, they wouldn't need to hold the meeting at the CenturyLink Center, an 18,975-seat arena, if only the class A people ($152,750 a share) could go.

BalugaJoe: How much money does he need?

That's the fun part. He doesn't need much at all, because his $31k (at the time of purchase) home in Omaha is paid for (now valued at $700k BTW). Buffett, by all accounts, is pretty frugal, and he intends on giving the bulk of his estate to charity when he dies. IIRC, his Berkshire salary is about $175k a year.

In other words, Buffett is one of the good guys.

This is marketing pure and simple.  Oh, we only gained 14.4%, how subpar of us.    Translation, that's right biatches, we did better in a poor year than your sorry ass 401 k's greatest masturbatory fantasy
