Affording the Most Expensive Stock in the World

Warren Buffet's company, Berkshire Hathaway, trades its class A shares under stock symbol BRKA. The stock is the most expensive costing as of the market close yesterday a staggering $120,700. And yes, that is per share.

The stock just yesterday hit a new all time high with the company now boasting a market capitilization of some $185 Billion. Some ways to afford a share or two of this prized company run by the greatest investor of all time:

  1. Sell your vacation home.
  2. Sell your real home, buy a trailer.
  3. Remortgage your house, sell all your vehicles, and pool the money.
  4. Cash out of your 401k early.
  5. Go out on some crazy margin.
  6. Become Warren Buffet's best friend.
  7. Become Bill Gates best friend.
  8. Become a drug dealer.
  9. Take up prostitution, start saving now.

    Your ways to get 1 share of Berkshire are hilarious :mrgreen:
    It is funny how I found that stock ridiculously high at 75K a few years ago. It almost double now!
    Will they ever split their shares? like 1:100,000 so I can buy some at $12? ;-)

    Just get his B class shares, they're much more affordable.

    Or just buy into his top holdings.

    For those people that can or might be able to purchase a share of this stock, HANG ON TO IT!!. just let it "stew". I happen to know an "old-timer" who sold 100K worth of lionel trains-some of these trains had never been offered in the lionel catalogs, or were offered in the 1920's. He sold off his entire collection and bought a share of BRK-A. I don't know how much he actually paid but it was over 100K. He also has Brk-B stock. So it can be done, it's just how much are you willing to sell and trade to come up with the money. His grandkids are set for a long time. As i said, hang on to it for dear life and sell it only if the unthinkable occurs and washington manages to "successfully" implode the stockmarket. Even in a depression, right now-Sept 09 2009, at 8:58am EST, it's still selling for 97k a share. I don't know about anyone else but i think that having 97k in reserve for the longterm would "ease the pain", if something like losing your job were to occur. (Nah that'ed never happen!!!!!) I been out of work for a year and im still trying to come back. Having enough money to buy a share of BrK-A is a dream still worth chasing!!!!
