I was just checking the volume from yesterday for the A's and B's.
Obviously a lot of people traded on the news, but one can not help but wonder if Berkshire was itself a buyer.
The stock price was below the new buyback threshold at a few times during the day.

Ignoring the background rate of trading, the dollar value of the amount
by which yesterday's volume exceeded its three month average was $952m.
Wouldn't it be nice if, say, 2/3 of that were buybacks?
Not likely, but hey, a guy can dream.

The price has been below the threshold much more of the day today.
But the volume looks like it will be only $50-100m above average.
