The Oracle of Omaha is always sharing pearls of investing wisdom.
Warren Buffett said he will no longer include the book value of Berkshire Hathaway shares in future annual letters.
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett wrote in an annual letter to shareholders on Saturday that the prospects of landing a mega-deal for his Berkshire Hathaway Inc conglomerate are "not good," while sinking stocks and deteriorating prospects from an investment in Kraft Heinz Co pummeled Berkshire's bottom line. Jillian Kitchener reports.
Warren Buffett provides an up-to-date view on the markets, the economy, and the state of Berkshire Hathaway.
Buffett lamented these states of affairs in his widely read annual letter to Berkshire shareholders. Accompanying the letter was more bad news, that sinking stock prices and a big writedown for the company's Kraft Heinz Co investment fuelled a $25.39 billion (£19.4 billion) fourth-quarter net loss, and caused Berkshire to post its lowest annual profit since 2001. Buffett uses his shareholder letters to focus on Berkshire's operating businesses, tout the strength of the U.S. economy, and criticize thinking and business practices that get in the way.
Warren Buffett's company recorded a $25 billion loss in the fourth quarter because of a big drop in the paper value of several of its stock investments. Buffett said Saturday that Berkshire Hathaway's businesses are performing well overall, but it has to record the market value of its stock holdings at the end of each quarter and Buffett has struggled to find attractive acquisitions recently. Berkshire lost $25.4 billion, or $10.31 per Class B share, in the quarter.
While the Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chief executive officer said he’s still happy in his job, his eventual exit will prompt questions on whether to break up the company and how to utilize what will probably still be a large cash pile. Over more than five decades, Buffett has taken Berkshire Hathaway from a struggling textile company to a sprawling business empire across the insurance, railway, manufacturing, and energy industries. “Those letters, in aggregate over the last 10, 20 years, have a lot of value to guide the board and guide the successors,” said James Armstrong, who manages about $750 million including Berkshire shares as president of Henry H. Armstrong Associates.
Billionaire Warren Buffett says the company he built through decades of acquisitions continues to perform well even though he hasn't found any major deals at attractive prices recently. Buffett released his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway Inc. shareholders on Saturday. About that, we should rejoice: Americans will be both more prosperous and safer if all nations thrive," Buffett wrote.
Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway on Saturday wrote down over $3 billion related to its investment in Kraft Heinz. Buffett helped finance Heinz's deal with Kraft in 2015, but so far that investment has been rocky. Warren Buffett's bet on Kraft Heinz KHC is looking like an acquisition stumble with an unclear path forward .
The Omaha, Nebraska company’s balance sheet at year’s end included a $3-billion non-cash loss largely caused by Berkshire’s stake of more than 325 million shares in Kraft Heinz Co (NYSE: KHC), CEO Warren Buffett said in his annual letter to shareholders Saturday.
