Go Figure: Too Many Zeros
By Jonah Freedman

(MONEY Magazine) – Y2K? That's so 20th century. The latest computer-can't-cope buzzword may be Berk100K. At a recent $95,000--up 56% from its 52-week low--Berkshire Hathaway stock is rapidly approaching six figures. Not a problem for Warren Buffett, but a headache for the New York Stock Exchange, whose computers are configured to handle, at most, seven digits, cents included. The Big Board's unique solution? Chop off the pennies (as in, $100,000.0). As if Berkshire didn't stand out to begin with. --JONAH FREEDMAN
