Pretty incredible. I believe I first heard about Berkshire Hathaway in 1987 while reading MONEY magazine. I want to say the stock was trading at about $2,700/share back then.
All I remember thinking was that $2,700 for one share of stock was JUST NUTS!!!

Apparently the joke was on me.

Merry Christmas everyone.
