In Buffett's last letter to shareholders, he talks about Berkshire's substantial losses last year in unwinding GenRe's hedge book. A hedge book that, on paper, apparently didn't look bad. A hedge book that they could have continued to carry forward without reporting any losses last year. But a hedge book that's costing an arm and a leg to unwind.

Riiinggg!
