Mjolah, thanks for the reply.

It's a good argument against the idea. Indeed, BRK is a unique investment beast.

I'm wondering though if KO could maybe make some low-budget movies/series and then target them for theaters and/or services like NFLX. I think these days Hollywood has learned how to make compelling filmed stories but at reasonable cost because of technological advances. KO could start out slow, maybe as a YouTube-centered channel.

It seems like there is a lot of original content demand out there, and perhaps KO could use its steady cash flow from its core beverage business and go for growth in the storytelling business. (McDonalds also seems like a company that could do that.)

Again, though, your issue of challenges with conglomerates is well taken.
