A CHANCE TO OWN BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY STOCKS


Yesterday was the last day to submit applications for Maxis IPO shares for retail investors. Trading on the KLSE starts 19 November. If you missed the deadline, here's another investment opportunity for your retirement funds.

Warren Buffet is offering a 50-for-1 split Berkshire Hathaway Class B shares at US$65.30 a share. This is a price that's definitely more affordable to ordinary investors, and gives them a chance to own stocks in a bluer-than-blue company. Berkshire Class B shares closed Monday at US$3265 on the NYSE.

I've been advised never to trust others to handle your investments for you, because ultimately they have their own interests at heart not yours. So if we don't have the time or the interest to study a company's annual reports for the past 10 years, or do a due diligence, or do an onsite-check of the company, it's best to walk away (like me!). Bona fide investors do not speculate.
