Warren Buffett famously said at the height of the financial crisis that you only know who's been swimming naked when the tide goes out.

Unfortunately for him and his shareholders at Berkshire Hathaway, it appears that one of the Sage of Omaha's biggest holdings, IBM Corp., has been skinny dipping for a long time.
