I don't think that's fair. AFAIK, every BH that owns Berkshire (other than one, who also owns Apple in his "play funds") has pointed out that it is the only individual stock that they own. Berkshire has many attributes of a fund, and owns many businesses with a tilt towards some industries (insurance, railroads, food, etc.) -- it's a relatively diversified stock, and it is perfect in the tax sense. We also generally buy and hold.
It's not like we're day-trading Facebook shares
