  • The Heinz-Kraft merger to form a mega food giant is just the most recent example.

    Berkshire is consolidating at these levels. In February Buffet's letter to investors will outline his vision for the company for the next 50 years. That will be the catalyst to increase share price. Patience is the key. I am buying at these levels and dollar cost averaging up.

    Also Berkshire is not so much a stock per se as an INVESTMENT FIRM. Warren is looking for businesses to buy in Europe. This is exactly where analysts are recommending one should put their money for maximum future growth. I let Warren invest my money and without paying fees for his services. The decision is a no-brainer.

    Berkshire is for LONG TERM INVESTORS! DAY TRADERS WON'T LIKE THIS STOCK. I am adding as these levels since I have at least a 20 year horizon to enjoy this stock.

    Question for longs

    That is a difficult question to answer based on past performance. What I do know is that I've been with Berkshire B shares since the 50:1 split back in 2010 and have been adding to my position on the way up ever since and am up now 58%. This was also during a period of QE by the Fed(a great period to be in stocks). Now that interest rate hikes are imminent, Berkshire may not increase its PPS at the same rate as the past 7 years. Regardless, with this great management team in place, I am confident in the ability of this investment firm to safely manage my money. With suitable catalysts in the future years such as European investments and the Singapore insurance opportunity, I would conservatively expect a PPS north of $200 in the next 10 years. There will be extended periods of consolidation, one of which we are currently experiencing. On an optimistic level, it would not surprise me to see the stock double. One fly in the ointment, which may be a temporary bump, will be if/when Warren retires from the company or passes away. His successor will need time to prove him/her self. Then all will be fine as before. Personally, I plan to add to my position over the next 10 years, as I have a 20 year horizon before I may need to sell any stock. I hope that helps but this in only my personal opinion. Also, like you, I am not a day trader but a long term investor.

    Coka Cola is reinventing itself and is therefore rated a buy. That is good news for Berkshire.

  • This is my favorite quote from Warren's newsletter: " I believe the chance of any event causing Berkshire to experience financial problems is essentially zero. We will always be prepared for the thousand-year flood; in fact, if it occurs we will be selling life jackets to the unprepared."

    Owning Berkshire B stock is my hedge against bad things happening to the economy because I know that Warren will have lots of cash to buy up bargains. It doesn't get better that that. I sleep well at night knowing I'm with the right investment.

    The more the markets sell off in panic, the more Warren is buying. This is a great time to be an investor in Berkshire. I'm all in in this baby. Patience is the key and it will pay off big time.

  • Quote: "Buffett had this to say in his 2014 Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B) letter to shareholders—“The unconventional, but inescapable, conclusion to be drawn from the past fifty years is that it has been far safer to invest in a diversified collection of American businesses than to invest in securities – Treasuries, for example – whose values have been tied to American currency. That was also true in the preceding half-century, a period including the Great Depression and two world wars. Investors should heed this history. To one degree or another it is almost certain to be repeated during the next century.”

    Now, you can’t be more emphatic than that.

    No. Warren prefers to invest the cash by purchasing whole companies and/or investing in blue chip stocks. It works for me.

    BRK-B shares are just consolidating during this period. The company is still great as always. There will be certain catalysts that come along causing the share price to rise. I'm sure if not before, some will come out of the shareholders' meeting in May.

    Warren will make another $70 million in bank dividends this year So, a rise in interest rates benefits the banks and therefore also Berkshire.

    Potential interest rate hikes by the Fed in June should not affect Berkshire. In my opinion, they have a lot of investments that would benefit from an interest rate hike. So, stay the course.

    Morningstar has s $157/share rating for Berkshire B stock. I am buying the dips.

  • Nothing comes to those who panic and sell. Warren is buying from investors who do just that. Results will come in time. As the song from the Rolling Stones illustrates--"Time is on my side, yes it is". When great results come pouring in--" you'll come running back, you'll come running back".
