Lots of people, especially on this site, & I'm one of them, would agree that BRK is cheap. The problem is that it's been cheap for about 5 years now. What should the board be doing to ensure that there is share price appreciation? Especially important in a company that doesn't pay dividends.

Read Buffett's recent comments on IBM. A further share price fall of BRK would be doubly beneficial as buy backs commence. Otherwise its flat price has been a gift to long term holders/buyers.

Years ago BRK was a large proportion of my retirement portfolio but has shrunk substantially. I've begun to bring up that proportion somewhat over the last few years. Unfortunately, that percent had already begun an assent due to some bad post crisis "diworsifying" divestments. :-)

It's hard to fathom that someone can be more redundant than this guy.

Who needs another pundit to tell us the BRK is cheap when Warren Buffett himseld has said so ad nauseaum in the last few months? premium member - 3 months ago

Great video gives some good insight to what Buffett values Bershire, it can still be used today as a guide to valuing the shares.
