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.
