Usually the company being bought sees a price jump in their stock, not so much the parent company.
From my trivial knowledge.

London voted Remain.

Anyway  I wouldn't worry. Market will be back in a week or less.
The market is now higher than it was on June 20. Anyone still panicking?
If you don't care why would you comment?

Panic is a good thing for investors and traders alike, as it creates misalignments and opportunities.

AFAIK nothing fundamental changed between June 17 and today as far as the weakness of the European economy, and since we didn't see a major (as in more than 10%) selloff in stocks, neither did anything change as far as the overall market valuation.

The few things that did seem to change since then are that Treasury yields are lower, gold is higher, and GBP/USD is at a lower level.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

ALK is almost (but not quite) back up to its "bottom" price, so it might be a buy if it gets that high again.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

B"H for BRK is all I can say. Literally holding my portfolio together.

yup! Same here. But when the old man croaks it's all over. So we gotta get out before then.

IINM ZROZ has been doing better than BRK recently and isn't dependent on "the old man" and serves as a decent portfolio balance.

Why would they pay a dividend? They would sooner buy out another company. Or create a new class share.

Continue the path they have done for the past many many years. Why reinvent the wheel?

It just gets harder and harder to efficiently deploy the amount of cash they generate.

You can't say it's "just" guessing, but  It's some sort of gambling.
Totally disagree!

It's only appropriate that pixi disagrees with centro, now we need Treo and Pre to chime in and we'll have an entire Palm lineup  ;D
