    Q4 results will show a very large unrealized gain and newer accounting rules will require BRK to report these gains as earnings. Apple is up, BAC is up, BYD is up, some big gains in Q4.............Last quarter the share price popped on earnings and the buyback of $9 billion in stock. What do you suppose will be the buyback in Q4 given the large cash hoard and lack of good opportunities elsewhere in the market?? My guess is $14 billion

    Help me with this. I want to invest 200k into Brk.b and leave it for 20+ years. I would like to know how should I buy? Wait, put limit or how should I do it. Thanks!

    What is up with BRKB? Yields are up. Banks are in a massive run and BRKB is down today. We are having a very hard time at $233-$234. Thoughts? I would think the current rotation to value really helps BRKB.
    Bullish

    Help me with this. I believe that Berkshire bought 25% of a Chinese company called BYD and lists under BYDDY about 12 years ago. It is isn't listed in the 13F because it isn't an American company. I looked at it tonight and it has gone from about $9 a share to around $65 a share in the last year. The company is presently worth about $94 billion dollars. I'm I right that his initial investment in this company which was about $250 million is now worth about $23 billion? Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks for any help.

    UPS? Costco? Brookfield? Exxon? What do you guys think the undisclosed position is?

    For anyone to think there isn't a problem with SPECULATION in this current market environment....just ask yourself this....Do you think the 10 million plus new retail brokerage accounts, 500 plus IPOs and the dozens of stocks up 100% plus in the last year, coupled with near free money operate in a vacuum? Do you think the shareholders in those securities, only own those up the most and won't impact the thousands of other stocks? The tide will go out eventually. Buffett is patiently waiting.

    The Yield Curve moving big time in our direction. Very Bullish for Berkshire. Ultimately a real problem for the general market. We're in early innings of major outperformance here,

    My recommendation to those who worry daily about the price of a share is...Don't. I prefer the price stays low and goes lower so that Warren can purchase more shares. I have been buying since January 1999 as funds become available. If you purchased the stock because you want it to go up, you purchased the wrong stock.

    Read Berkshire Hathaway Owners Manual. If you haven't or don't agree with it, you purchased the wrong stock

    I get why JAD doesn't like BRK stock, and has moved on to greener pastures. According to his intrinsic value assessment, BRK#$%$ had an intrinsic value of $189 at the end of 2019, and an intrinsic value of $204 at the end of 2020. Now, Buffett bought back shares in both 2019 and 2020. In the fourth quarter of 2019, Buffett paid up to $222 per B, and in the first quarter of 2020, Buffett paid up to $226 per B.If a person believes that the management is being a poor steward of the corporate assets, they under no circumstance should invest in that company.

    I used to have respect for Bill Miller....Fairly good value investor....He basically just used the justification for buying intangible bitcoin that other rich guys were doing it, and an inflation hedge.

    I am finding that the future may be to sell intangible goods like value in computer games, digital coins, and then just by tangible assets like land. People are attracted because they see the measuring stick going up and think it will continue (recency bias) and others are doing it (social proof bias). Great games to take peoples legal tender by giving them perceived value with poor liquidity.

    Guys, serious question?
    Thank god last year was over for BRKB. I think BRKB was pulling the SP 500 back with its low performance. You guys still think BRKB should NOT be broken into little companies to bring value back to the shareholders? I still own it even now, and I keep telling myself to hold it until it reaches the intrinsic value people here are so wrapped up with. But I also have that fear that it would never reach it, and probably should get rid of it. It's a constant decision point. Sigh!

    The buyback program is genius. When it was amended in 2018 to remove the 1.2bv rule the stock went up 5% just on that news. Now WB buys $10B back a quarter and no one bats an eye. The stock actually goes down. Maybe when fundamentals actually matter Brk will break out. One can hope

    Evidently, BYD is a value play having a P/E of only 245.

    Warren Buffet says we should ignore the gyrations of the unrealized investment gains and that makes sense over the short term, but over the longer term these gains tend to have staying power. If Apple becomes a more valuable company, then it stands to reason the roughly 1 billion shares that Berkshire owns should drive the value of Berkshire up as well over time. Same for BYD the Chinese EV maker. Ok maybe the doubling of share price during Q4 will not hold, but some of it will and Berkshire owns 25% of BYD.
    Given recent gains in the market, Berkshire is undervalued and given the $9 billion share buy back in Q3 it is apparent that Berkshire also think the shares are undervalued.........2021 is going to be a stellar year for BRK
    In my opinion .........
