    BV Calculation

    I own BRK, but don't trust the yahoo numbers so I do my own calculations on BV per share. When I look at recent quarterly report calculate BV per share from Equity of $230,289 with outstanding shares of 1,644,059. Somehow I'm using the wrong numbers because my BV per share is 140,073 with today current price of 189,143 for price to book of 1.35. Yahoo shows 1.37 (numbers from Morningstar) Morningstar shows 1.4 price to book. is there something I am missing?

    Sentiment: Hold

    • I get $138,426. per "A" as of March 31, 2014.

      Using the 1Qtr2014 Form 10-Q:

      From Page 2:
      Berkshire Hathaway shareholders’ equity as of March 31, 2014 ... 227,612 M$.

      From Page 20:
      On an equivalent Class A common stock basis, there were 1,644,289 shares outstanding as of March 31, 2014.

      BV per "A" share = 227,612 M$ / 1.644289 million shares as of March 31,2014.
