1. What happens if one or both stocks were purchased at recent or 52-week highs?2. What happens if one or both stocks plunge 30% - 50% within a 6-month period?2a. Couldn't happen to Berkshire? Wrong.http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=BRK-B&t=5y&l=on&......All of that seems to me to be purely random stock price movements that I have absolutely no control over. I can control fees. Yes I would hesitate to buy any stock that was at a 52 week high.But I am continually buying in over many years. And holding.I sincerely doubt even Warren Buffett buys an individual stock position as a single transaction, anddecides he's done. I know positions like Coke, Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, etc weremultiple purchase transactions. Just the transactional execution of say, buying 1M shares of stock X,would likely not occur as a single transaction. I'm not buying in once and deciding I'm done either. I am simply spreading my buys over a very long period on a once-a-year basis.
