Warren Buffett: "We buy on an all equity basis." Some of the acquisition prices are out of control. He always comes with an "elephant gun." More stocks to buy? He usually ends up buying more of the stocks he already owns. Added IBM (IBM) shares this year. Added $1 billion worth of Wells Fargo (WFC).
Looking at IBM, he is delighted with it. It does better abroad than in the U.S. Berkshire (BRK.A)(BRK.B)'s insurance is doing well. It has an underwriting profit. The float is about $70 billion.
