The videos are nice, but why not provide some cliff notes?

The most significant takeaways for me were his comments on current stock market valuations. He repeated his view from a few months ago that markets are not too frothy and are in "a zone...of reasonableness":

"Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) rejected the suggestion the U.S. stock market is "too frothy" right now as the major indexes re-approach their all-time highs.

"I think we're in a range, and it's a big zone always, of reasonableness. But stocks ought to be higher every ten years.There's a plow back of earnings that goes back year after year." ......

Asked if he agrees with investor David Einhorn's warning that "we are witnessing our second tech bubble in 15 years," Buffett said he doesn't always understand tech valuations, but it's not like the period before 2001 when "you could almost sell anything and capitalize eyeballs and all of that. I don't think it's reached that point and certainly I don't think the general market level is going to bubble up." "

Where in any of the videos did you see him mention anything about the market?  I saw that nowhere.
