••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Berkshire Hathaway Inc

Zeke Ashton Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Jan 06, 2017

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B) is of course managed by Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), who is justifiably recognized as one of the world’s most successful investors and the torch-bearer for the value investing style of capital allocation. Unlike many stocks in today’s expensive environment, Berkshire Hathaway remains very reasonably valued on historical measures relative to earnings and book value, and we believe the company’s immense balance sheet strength remains a rare competitive advantage.



From Zeke Ashton (Trades, Portfolio)'s Centaur Management 2016 annual letter to investors.

In my previous four articles on Valeant (Part I, II, III and IV), I went through my findings regarding Valeant’s (NYSE:VRX) business model and what went wrong. We all know that Valeant’s shares have plummeted more than 90% since the peak they reached in the first half of 2015. There’s some ongoing debate as to whether there’s any value in Valeant’s stock at today’s price. I’m not going to attempt to value Valeant because I’m not even interested at this point. On the other hand, there are quite a few lessons we can learn from the debacle of Valeant and why so many high-grade people it took in. Read more...

Why Charlie Munger Hates Value Investing Guru prefers high-quality businesses
When Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) came to Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) in the late '60s, Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) was still running the business and investing how his teacher, Benjamin Graham, had taught him to – by buying a selection of cigar butt type companies and holding for many years.
