This allows shareholders and followers of Markel who happen to be in attendance at the Berkshire meeting to also stop in and hear what Tom Gayner and Steve Markel have to say.
When this Markel meeting first started six people attended and the Markel stock price was $8. Now there are 500 people attending and the stock price is $500.
I bet the Markel folks can't wait for 1,000 people to show up!
