A huge piece of a multinational with much of its revenues outside of the U.S. is another way of hedging US$ assets. Given that the price has been drifting down since Buffett announced his initial position, is it not conceivable that he has been increasing his stake?

I think the fact that BUD is still on confidental list means they are still trying to buy. On the other hand there is a rule that you have to notify SEC when position reaches 5% I do not know if there are exceptions, but I doubt that Berkshire could go above 10% without it becoming public. Hopefully there is someone here that has more knowledge for these rules than I.

BUD could account for all the missing equity but there are other possibilities not the least of which would be additional foreign equities which are not registered in U.S.
