Hello to BRK shareholders,

I've decided to buy some BRK (B -- unfortunately don't have enough to buy A!) and hold for the long run. Would it be Foolish to buy it via my regular broker (Fidelity -- which I expect to be around a long time), rather than my discount broker (Datek) who doesn't offer a stock certificate? Or should I buy a few shares diectly from Berkshire Hathaway if that's possible?

And would you more experienced investors recommend timing my entry? I note that the stock was lower this past December. Has that been true in previous years?

And does anyone know when BRK bought WFC? Just curious. I hold WFC shares also.

Thanks in advance for responding.
