The reasoning is solid, but Buffett has warned you need to plan for the expectation for a 50% share price drop in any one year with any stock investment including Berkshire.the long term is quite easy to forecast in terms of a very favorable result and I love the idea of loading up at birth on a college savings plan with Berkshire, just keep in mind any one year is a potential landmine, with real peril especially as you approach year 18.So assuming you didn't hit a landmine in the early to mid teens, I would likely be pretty heavily in fixed income by years 15 or 16 of that plan. But that would also reduce total return.
