There are 30 shares of Berkshire Hathaway class B per single Berkshire Hathaway Class A share.

There is often this arbritrage opportunity <Requires a Margin Account>.

One Arbritrage unit = long or short 30 Class B shares; long or short one class A share.

The trade requires a margin account & Level 2 NASDQ data.

A moment ago the trade looked like this:

To collect a risk-free $150 per trading unit here are the numbers:

BUY 30 BRK-B
Sell-Short 1 BRK-A
NET $150.00
Comission $0.62

Net Profit/Unit = $150 - $0.62 or $149.38 per unit

Trade ten units for $1,493.80
