Guru Investment Theses on Berkshire Hathaway Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Oct 12, 2018

In Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B)’s most recently reported quarter, underwriting profitability inflected higher at the Company’s insurance subsidiaries, particularly at GEICO, as higher pricing and a dearth of mega-cats combined to drive substantially better year-over-year results. The Company also amended their share repurchase program and removed their buy-limit of 20% premium to book value, replacing it with what Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) (CEO) or Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) (Vice Chairman) deem to be cheap enough relative to intrinsic value. No doubt the 20% premium has been an important signpost for investors for the past several years.



However, management has long signaled that they are having a hard time finding attractive investment opportunities, also evidenced in their $100 billion war-chest in low-return cash balance. If and when the cost of capital rises, either from the reversal of global quantitative easing or higher volatility, we expect Berkshire to ease up on buybacks and deploy capital at very high rates of return. Until then, and after more than 9 years of U.S. equity appreciation, we think it is prudent for management to preserve and return cash via accretive share buybacks, rather than compete with undisciplined buyers flush with cheap and easy capital.



From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners 3rd quarter 2018 shareholder commentary.

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.
