Guru Investment Theses on Berkshire Hathaway Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Apr 22, 2016

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) is a conglomerate holding company owning subsidiaries engaged in a number of business activities. Berkshire shares were helped by the closing of the Precision Castparts acquisition and improved operating performance at its Burlington Northern railroad subsidiary. Berkshire’s insurance unit continues to show excellent discipline in underwriting, which results in temporary declines in premium, but means the company will have significant capacity when insurance pricing returns.
