$200,000 gets someone lunch with Buffett
任何支付20万美元的人可够入2股全球第二富人巴菲特(Warren Buffett)执掌公司Berkshire Hathaway的股票，或与他共进午餐。
NEW YORK (Reuters) — For about $200,000, you can buy two shares of Berkshire Hathaway's stock (BRKA), or you can have lunch with its chairman — Warren Buffett.
Buffett, who is the world's second richest person, put himself up for auction on eBay to help the Glide Foundation. The winning bidder, whose name was not disclosed, will be able to invite seven friends to have lunch with Buffett.
This year's price, $202,100, was lower than the $250,100 that a New York investment firm paid for the lunch last year.
Since 2000, Buffett has donated lunches to the Glide Foundation, a charity that offers programs to the poor, hungry and homeless in San Francisco.
"Here is the chance of a lifetime to pick the brain of the one-and-only Warren Buffett," read the description of the item on eBay.
Buffett, known as the "Oracle of Omaha" because of his prescient investment decisions and his hometown, has a fortune estimated by Forbes magazine at $42.9 billion.
Bidding on the item ended Thursday night San Francisco time.
Steakhouse Smith & Wollensky has agreed to host the lunch.
Berkshire's Class A shares closed at $90,300 in Thursday trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
