Almost everything?

He used to avoid companies that needed lots of capx. Now that doesn't seem to matter. He used to buy companies and then let them continue running exactly the way they had been run before he bought them. Now, not so much. Used to see a BRK run company, and say that's ours. Now not sure if I could spot them all.

Been a shareholder for a long, long time. Seeing the changes over the years has been interesting.

Used to call him "Uncle Warren", at home. Now not so much.

Not saying this to make people angry... Just trying to start a thread about how things have changed, and how being a huge conglomerate benefits shareholders. I read the comments in the AR about this path, but it would be good for a thorough discussion here.

Is BRK a Peter Lynch "stalwart" or a Peter Lynch "slow grower"?

Is being bigger better for shareholders?

Please chime in.

Sincerely,

jan
