It looks like Tom Gayner sold his entire position in Western Union based on the latest 13-F. Here's recent activity in the stock from dataroma:

It wasn't a large position for Markel but it was a stock that he was accumulating for several quarters until selling the entire position in Q3.

Either we will see Berkshire with a significant WU position when the next 13-F comes out or Combs must have changed his mind regarding the sustainability of the company's moat.
