Did anyone watch the whole conference?

What's your take on Berkshire? How do you feel about Apple after announcing results that were pretty lit up by the $110 billion stock buyback? 📈🍎

It's a great company and I'm thinking of buying BRK-B now instead of SP500 in the future.

That's certainly not a bad strategy!
