LEE, IBM

Man, am I boring Reason for all of them being that he simply added to his positions.

RFP. A lumber and paper company. In part because people still produce paper. It's not that dead yet. RFP is a big player that just went through bankruptcy/restructuring a few years ago. And many countries don't have trees to produce their own raw materials for paper so they have to import it. Also should be a nice housing recovery play. And I own it, that hsould be erason enough for Warren to buy it!

DTV - purchased by Ted Weschler, it deeped to the $43 range and he must have added to his position.

DVA - purchased by Ted Weschler and/or Todd Combs, it dropped to around $80 and they must have added to their positions.

LMCA - purchased by Ted Weschler since it fell to around $80-$82 and he must have added to his position.

All previous buys and still undervalued. Weschler likes LMCA and DVA. Warren probably added to WMT position.
