Mason Hawkins Comments on Berkshire Hathaway
Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) appreciated 28% for the year after its fourth quarter gain of 10%. The company’s underlying operating businesses performed well. In insurance, GEICO revenues grew 10% driven 2/3 by units and 1/3 by pricing. Reinsurance endured no major catastrophes and some positive currency impact. BNSF grew 4% with gains in both volume and pricing. In the fourth quarter, Berkshire announced the acquisition of Duracell from Proctor & Gamble in a tax efficient exchange for appreciated Berkshire stock. The stock reached our appraisal, and we sold it. Berkshire rarely sells at enough of a discount to meet our criteria given its quality businesses and management, but we were able to purchase it for the second time in our history in 2012. The stock returned over 89% in our two year holding period. Read more...

In insurance, GEICO grew premiums 11% and wrote at a 92% combined ratio. Reinsurance was helped by few natural disaster claims.
