All that chart tells me is that the YHOO's volitility is way more significant than any difference in stock price.

Hey ufool2000,
I'm a YHOO stock holder and a big fan of Yahoo, but I sincerly hope you're not using a comparison of Yahoo vs. BRK as justification for investing in YHOO. There simply is no comparison in there industries, business models, management styles, etc.
Yahoo should be judged against its pears and competitors or by itself.

Do these points really matter ? The objective is not to compare any of the attributes you mentioned but only the appreciation of the stock value.

The future of both companies is unknown. I believe BRK has a great track record so far but it is operating in unknown territory contrary to most of its cheerleaders.

YHOO has yet to prove itself but I believe it has great potential and is very well positioned to be a market leader over the next 5 - 10 - 20 years.

Time will tell. I pick YHOO today.

I think even Mr. Buffet himself would agree with you. That's probably why he owns companies from Coke to GEICO. I don't know much about it, but I would guess that YHOO's risk factor is way too high for BRK to be interested. But if we're right about YHOO, we'll get a much better return than with BRK.
