Stocks B / Berkshire Hathaway

I sincerely hope WEB lives well into his 90s. But the market is not so kind. This is a larger part of why WEB is repurchasing the stock. The market is in part discounting him and his possible death.

Now regrettably if WEB dies around this repurchase period that would mean up to $27 billion with a B has been wasted on his mortality? or something like that.

We all have to die at some point.
