A little thank you to Warren Buffet

On December 21st I was looking for a stock to buy with some extra cash, and I liked Heinz, the ketchup company. It's pretty stable and pays a nice dividend, and I've really liked dividend stocks the past few years. So I bought $5,000 worth. It's gone up a couple of percent over the last couple of months, and I've been good with that since that's a very good annualized return so far.

Today it was announced the Berkshire Hathaway is buying Heinz. The stock is up 20% today. Blammo. I sold out my initial $5,000 worth, left the profit in, and I now have $1,200 of free Heinz ketchup stock for two months of investment.

God, I love America.

Sometimes google isnt my friend.

So I very briefly reviewed this article.

Looks like they're buying about 55% of the company's shares for $7.30 each. So there is probably a tender offer going on which you can accept to sell at that price.

If you decline to do so, then after the deal closes you will be part of the 30% of non-Softbank stockholders of Sprint, and the share price will fluctuate per normal.

While the $7.30 offer is out there, I'd expect the stock to trade north of $7.00 certainly. After that, all bets are off and the stock will do whatever it will do.

So question -- do you stick to this even when the 20% increase is within the first year, such that it's a short term capital gain and you're paying taxes at ordinary income rates?

If so, brutal. Don't think I can handle that.

So how does one buy $5000 worth of a stock that costs $152,955.00 per share?

I bought Berkshire B stock around the time it was first introduced at about 1500.00 a share. Since then, they split the stock 50-1 so more people would buy it. It's now 101.00 a share. Gotta love the Buffet man.

I'm liking Intel right now. I bought 150 shares on Tuesday and it's already up close to $.70.

It's way undervalued, and a $.90 dividend on a < $22 stock is hard to beat.

Because he bought stock in Heinz and not Berkshire Hathaway.

Actually, I've only bought stocks within my IRA, so I haven't had to worry about the tax implications. On my liquid cash I've just done very, very conservative mutual funds with a goal of beating a money market return.

I bought some FRAN on Monday thinking it was due for a short squeeze. 45% shorts of total float is crazy undervalued. It's already up 9% today and looking like it might explode.

Damn - everything is up right now but some of my gains are Awesome.

I realize there will be some pullback at some point but the stocks I've invested in at the beginning of the year I like and want to hold long-term. Plus I can't sell yet because I would be taxed over the capital gains rate.

The one "stupid" investment I made about 1.5 years ago just set a new high today (I'm up about 40% overall on it) but I'm just going to ride that one out. The gains thing doesn't factor in there because I bought that one in a retirement account so no taxes on the gains anyway. Oh well..

I'm actually anxious for a pullback because there are a few stocks I really want to buy (and should have 3 months ago) but I don't want to pay the price they're at right now.
