You may wonder why I would trouble Berkshire/Buffett fans with rank speculation.

Well, I have some call options that I'm contemplating unloading. But I'm wondering if I should wait until after the letter is released. I figure the best guess of a group here would be better than simply my guess.

I'm guessing that the letter this year will be fairly optimistic, and hopefully Mr. Market will be a bit more cheery regarding the stock.

I don't expect any commentary on the stock price relative to intrinsic value other than perhaps some elaboration on the circumstances surrounding the December 2012 buyback and the increase in the buyback limit from 1.1x to 1.2x. Direct comments on the stock price have been very rare. Notable exceptions include the comment of the Bs not being attractive upon initial issue and the comment a year later about the price to value relationship being "more appropriate".

The letters over the last few years haven't included many surprises and I don't expect we will see any surprising comments this year either. We will probably get some historical anecdotes or stories regarding the circumstances surrounding past acquisitions. Probably one or two subsidiary CEOs will be identified as having created significant shareholder value, etc.
