Guru Investment Theses on Berkshire Hathaway Inc

Wally Weitz Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Jan 24, 2018

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A), the Fund’s largest holding, was a notable contributor to fourth-quarter and full-year performance. Large acquisitions proved elusive over the course of 2017, but Berkshire’s existing collection of insurance, railroad, utility and manufacturing businesses drove a healthy double-digit increase in intrinsic value per share (aided in part by a reduction in the company’s deferred tax liability). Deployable cash now stands in excess of $90 billion, positioning Mr. Buffett well as opportunities arise in the days ahead.



From Weitz Investment Management's Value Fund fourth-quarter commentary.

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.

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s Weitz Value Fund 1st quarter 2016 commentary.

A Two-Step Approach to Assessing 'Earnings Quality' A stock deserves a higher P/E if it converts more EPS to free cash flow and reallocates that free cash flow into high return on investment uses. Low 'earnings quality' stocks deserve a low P/E
One of the most important tasks a value investor has is judging “earnings quality.” A stock’s P/E ratio tells you something. But, it doesn’t tell you enough. And the longer you are invested in a stock – the less it tells you. Value investors often try to fix this problem by focusing on free cash flow instead of earnings per share. They also think a lot about return on invested capital. For example, Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio)’s “The Magic Formula” uses EV/EBIT (which is a pre-tax P/E ratio that counts debt as part of the price) as a sort of earnings measure combined with last year’s return on capital.

Risks You Can Remove and Risks You Can’t Diversifying across countries and companies makes sense. But, never sacrifice stock cheapness or business quality for the sake of diversification. It's okay to be 100% in stocks 100% of the time
The stock market has taught us an important lesson these last few days: There are risks you can remove from owning stocks and risks you can’t. No matter how diversified you are – you can’t remove the risk of experiencing a paper loss of 5% or 10% within a few days or weeks. That risk will always be there. Does that mean you shouldn’t diversify? Read more...
