  • Berkshire is top heavy with energy, rails, and housing, In addition its stock portfolio is declining along with the market. BV will be down in Q3 and down sharply in Q4. P/BV will head back to 1.27 from the current 1.45. The price will be $170,000. BRKA is in a short term bubble driven by people seeking a safe haven. It is not safe as it is leveraged to the market by using its float. It is like being on margin without paying interest.

    Sentiment: Sell

    Yes and we have not yet seen the massive writedown due to the SIR share purchase. So far it is $2.60 per GOV share--a $177MM loss. That will cause GOV to have another dilutive equity offering. The downward spiral continues.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    They were due for a $.02 dividend increase anyway. Obviously not able to raise to more. This is a lame effort to get shareholder approval.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
