I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this quarter's letters to stockholders from the Third Avenue Funds to hear how they have reacted to all the hoopla about this company (they've been big boosters for many years.)

Well during the quarter, their Value Fund purchased 2,643,668 shares! I was only able to find coin for 400 myself.

For an entertaining and very informative read, check out the shareholder letters (you don't have to own any) at

I especially liked page 3 of the Whitman's letter that begins with a quote from a biography of Sigmund Freud (yes, that Freud Dude.)
