Just thinking about Walmart.

Berkshire's buys (annual, not quarterly)

2005, 19.9 million shares at average price $47.33, total cost 944m
...
2009, 19 million shares at average price $49.81, total cost to date $1.89bn
...
2012, 15.8 million shares at average price $59.80, total cost to date $2.84bn
2013, 2.0 million shares at average price $70.11, total cost to date $2.98bn
2014, 10.9 million shares at average price $75.40, total cost to date $3.80bn
Current price is $80.76.

This shows a fair bit of confidence, and ongoing confidence.

Are most others coat-tailing on this one?
Any insightful comments?
