    Waiting for Peter Thiel: big tech directors miss shareholder meetings

    Some small investors who want to give a piece of their minds to big tech company directors are losing their only chance: many board members are skipping annual shareholder meetings.

    Buffett, Bezos and Dimon Found Their CEO — Now Comes the Hard Part

    If you’re a medical practitioner being asked by Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon to head up a potentially historical healthcare initiative that conveniently doesn’t have to worry about making money has got to feel like winning the Powerball lottery. Boston-based surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande, metaphorically speaking, has been given the keys to the candy store, tasked with finding healthcare delivery solutions for the employees of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) that lower the cost while improving the experience. It is hoped that by using these three companies as guinea pigs, the lessons learned through Dr. Gawande’s initiative could be rolled out to other Americans, ultimately changing the trajectory of America’s healthcare system for the better.

    How Berkshire Should Prepare for Life After Buffett

    Widely lauded as the world's greatest investor, multi-billionaire Warren Buffett also is one of the richest people on earth, as a direct result of having built Berkshire Hathaway Inc. ( BRK.A) into one of the most valuable public companies on the planet. Barron's columnist Andrew Bary argues that succession planning at Berkshire, as well as some key strategic pivots, are long overdue. Much of the mystique surrounding Buffett comes from the spectacularly outsized returns that Berkshire generated in its first three decades under his leadership.

    Head of new U.S. corporate health plan cites surgery as biggest cost

    Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon who was named this week to head the company being formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase to trim employee healthcare costs, on Thursday cited surgery as the single biggest U.S. healthcare cost and said there are ways to both cut costs and improve patient care. Speaking in San Diego at the annual meeting of America's Health Insurance Plans, a health insurance trade association, Gawande also said that end-of-life care needs to take into account the wishes of patients, something which he said is now sorely lacking.

    Why Warren Buffett's Investment Style Is Fumbling the Ball

    Omaha! Every time Warren Buffett is mentioned, I think of Peyton Manning's ardent line-of-scrimmage call and wonder if the wisdom of the Oracle is location-specific. To "lose" to the market by 280 basis points over a five-year period is really an unacceptable performance, and it shows the lack of exposure to technology, which is endemic to Berkshire. You don't need to go to Morningstar to know that Berkshire shares have lagged the Nasdaq by a huge amount over the past five years, and that is the problem with Buffett's investing style.

Gawande, who practices general and endocrine surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and as an author has made a name for himself as a critic of medical practices, said some of the focus on the high cost of health care in the United States is misplaced.

    Atul Gawande Says His Goal Is Better Health Care for 1 Million Workers

    Atul Gawande, named to head a new health-care venture jointly formed by Amazon.com Inc., Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., said he’s now in a position to reduce waste and improve medical treatment for a million workers. “We will come to a place where we can generate scalable solutions that change the practice of medicine,” Gawande said at the America’s Health Insurance Plans conference in San Diego on Thursday, a day after he was appointed chief executive officer of the health-care partnership. The not-for-profit startup aims to improve care and lower costs for the three companies by creating systems that connect complex medical services with patient counseling while reducing waste caused by irrelevant tests or costly treatment that doesn’t improve quality of life, Gawande said, citing his research as a medical journalist.

    [$$] Gawande to Head Health Venture of Berkshire, Amazon, JPMorgan

    Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. named prominent surgeon and researcher Atul Gawande as chief executive of their new venture that aims to overhaul workers’ health care. The appointment of Dr. Gawande is effective July 9, and the still-unnamed health-care initiative will be based in Boston, the companies said. The selection of Dr. Gawande, a best-selling author known for his work on health-care quality, ensures the effort will remain under a spotlight, and provides the most concrete signal so far that the partners’ ambitions go beyond conventional tweaks to employer health-benefit plans.
