March 01, 2014 | About:

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s new Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) shareholder letter for 2013 is out as of Saturday morning, March 1.

To the Shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.:

After those charges, the per-share book value of both our Class A and Class B stock increased by 18.2%.
