But, it still makes sense to many, including Barrons. And let's look at it this way...….in addition to WBA's incredible cash flow and earnings, WBA has been returning Billions to shareholders each year in the form of Dividends and Stock buybacks. If BRK were to acquire WBA in its entirety (and it has the Cash to do so) and made it a wholly owned operating company within BRK, those Billions currently going to divis and stock buybacks drop straight into BRK's treasury and defray the cost of the acquisition over time. Food for thought.
