Berkshire Hathaway Could See Rebound in Insurance in 4Q17

Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) continues to garner higher expectations for its operating performance. Berkshire is expected to post EPS (earnings per share) of $2,633 in 4Q17, marginally lower than 4Q16’s $2,665 and a substantial improvement from 3Q17. The rise is expected due to lower losses in the insurance space and growth by BNSF Railway and the manufacturing sector. Earnings before taxes for Berkshire’s service, manufacturing, and energy divisions and BNSF Railway rose 1%–9% year-over-year in 3Q17.
