Fear At Berkshire Hathaway?

A trader friend reports that Berkshire Hathaway's cost for credit default swaps (CDS) has soared to $475,000 per $10 million which was higher than Citicorp’s at it's peak fear period, which was about $380,000 per $10 million.

This is still isn't red light danger level for Warren Buffett's holding company, but is indicative of nervousness, and awareness that he may be holding some toxic derivatives.
