But speaking of footnotes, this one is more interesting:5,748,045 of the total reported securities are owned by the following pension plans of Berkshire's subsidiaries: Acme Brick Company Pension Trust (175,000), The Buffalo News Office Pension Plan (65,000), The Buffalo News Mechanical Pension Plan (16,000), The Buffalo News Drivers/Distributors Pension Plan (7,000), The Buffalo News Editorial Pension Plan (105,000), Dexter Pension Plan (90,000), Flightsafety International Inc. Retirement Income Plan (300,000), Fruit of the Loom Pension Trust (670,000), GEICO Corporation Pension Plan Trust (1,303,769), Johns Manville Corporation Master Pension Trust (1,182,800), Justin Brands, Inc. Union Pension Plan & Justin Brands, Inc. Pension & Trust (96,000), Scott Fetzer Collective Investment Trust (187,000), and BNSF Master Retirement Trust (1,550,476); each of Berkshire, Mr. Buffett and these pension plans disclaims beneficial ownership in such shares.So roughly half of the DaVita position resides within Berkshire's pension plans which are not considered assets of Berkshire...I know that Buffett has personally managed the pension plans in the past. Could part of the funds allocated to Combs and Weschler be from the pension plans? Or is Buffett buying DaVita himself on behalf of the pension plans following Weschler's purchases on behalf of Berkshire itself?Interesting situation...
