I have read that Buffet & Gates have been short the dollar for quite some time and used forwards to accomplish this. No leverage. This is old news and I have read various reasons and comments as to why. Isn't it like this? Warren & Buffet obviously needed to hedge their overseas investments. I could speculate that the Forwards protect them from a weakening USD tool. Thoughts comments? Surely they were not speculating, as they were way to early. Michael B.
