Berkshire Hathaway

Is anyone here going to the Berkshire Hathaway annual
meeting? My son (a shareholder and now 24) has wanted to go
there for the last ten years, and we may finally get there
this year.

Their dividends are put on Schedule D, right? ;-)

Dividends are put on Schedule B. Capital gains or losses (when you sell the shares) are put on Schedule D. Missy Doyle

I go every year, but it's easy for me as I live in Omaha.
And, as I'm sure you know, Berkshire does not pay dividends. ;-)

He has "B" shares. He collected coins since he was six and I gave him some old silver dollars my grandfather had given me. At age 11 I gave im five shares of McDonalds and five shares of Disney, but he wasn't interested in them. Then a couple of years later he was flipping through the business section of the paper and noticed his stock had increased in value about four times since it was purchased, but his coins had gone up much less during that same time. So he sold his coins and not only had enough for one B-H "B" share but enough for a second one, though he diversified with the rest. Stu

Maybe we'll see you if we make it. How many people usually show up?
Yeah, but I wanted to keep it on topic. ;-)

Too many! The last couple of years they filled the Qwest center which has a capacity of around 18,000, and had to put extras into an overflow room via telecast, which was another 3,000. And that was for the annual meeting itself. The other events are typically large draws also. Come only if you enjoy crowds.
