Wow, this company is just all over the map. They own, among other things, Ben Bridge Jewelers, Business Wire, FlightSafety, Fruit of the Loom, GEICO, Dairy Queen, Nebraska Furniture Mart, See's Candies, Justin Boots, Kirby (vacuum cleaners), World Book, Benjamin Moore (paint), McLane (trucking), Acme Brick Company, Garanimals (children's clothing), the Pampered Chef, Clayton Homes, MidAmerican Energy Company and dozens more. No wonder William Buffett is so freaking rich.
Damn, I just missed the annual stockholder meeting. It was last Saturday. And it was local, too.
