Greetings bushman54,can someone please explain the different share types? Typically different share classes represent either different voting rights or other rights that may be part of a common stock. For mutual funds, it is usually different fees for different share classes of funds.for example, i work for comcast and own shares (symbol cmcsa), but i notice there is another comcast share listed: cmcsk. what's the difference between an "a" share and a "k" share? http://www.cmcsk.com/faq.cfm#0 has notes on cmcsa which is Comcast Class A common stock and cmcsk which is Comcast Class A Special Common stock. Berkshire Hathaway has a couple of share classes itself with tickers of BRK.A and BRK.B that is explained on http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/compab.htmlThat help?Cheers,JB
