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.

Wally Weitz Comments on Berkshire Hathaway and Bank of America Guru stock highlight
Most of our assets are invested in companies we have owned for many years, but the companies themselves have not been standing still. Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) has been in our clients’ accounts continuously since 1976, but today’s Berkshire is very different from that of 40, 30, 20 or even 10 years ago. Recent headlines trumpet Berkshire’s $12 billion profit on its Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) investment. In fact, that investment was made in 2011 when Buffett lent BAC a badly needed $5 billion. Berkshire received a convertible preferred stock with a 6% yield ($300 million per year) convertible into BAC shares worth over $17 billion today. Berkshire’s internal rate of return on this investment is about 18% per year.

Berkshire currently holds about $100 billion in cash available for future deals. Investments like BAC (and similar lifelines thrown to Goldman Sachs and General Electric (NYSE:GE Read more...
