In the latest trading session, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B) closed at $206.70, marking a +0.74% move from the previous day.
In Berkshire Hathaway ( NYSE:BRK.B )'s most recently reported quarter, underwriting profitability inflected higher at the Company's insurance subsidiaries, particularly at GEICO, as higher pricing and a dearth of mega-cats combined to drive substantially better year-over-year results. The Company also amended their share repurchase program and removed their buy-limit of 20% premium to book value, replacing it with what Warren Buffett ( Trades , Portfolio ) (CEO) or Charlie Munger ( Trades , Portfolio ) (Vice Chairman) deem to be cheap enough relative to intrinsic value. If and when the cost of capital rises, either from the reversal of global quantitative easing or higher volatility, we expect Berkshire to ease up on buybacks and deploy capital at very high rates of return.

Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors (if not the most) of all time, and chief stock-picker for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). Since assembling the group of companies that would eventually become Berkshire back in 1964, the so-called Oracle of Omaha's baby has trounced the broad market's return. That has led the market to hunt down so-called "Warren Buffett stocks" in hopes of benefitting from his wisdom and discipline. But Buffett, at 88 years of age, already has had to step away from complete control of Berkshire Hathaway, unable to keep up the pace of study needed to keep his fund's holdings optimized. Other acolytes have emerged, and out of necessity have started making stock picks for Berkshire without necessarily requiring Buffett's blessing. Todd Combs and Ted Weschler are at least running a big part of the show. Their selections aren't always divulged as non-Buffett picks. From a shareholder's perspective, Berkshire and its collective chiefs are one and the same, and reported as such. It's sometimes quite clear, though, that Warren Buffett had little-to-nothing to do with a particular holding. Here are five Berkshire Hathaway holdings that might not necessarily be "Warren Buffett stocks." That's because they're out of character with the decades' worth of insight and tips he's been willing to dish out. More importantly: They might give us clues as to the direction of Berkshire's picks once Buffett is completely out of the picture. SEE ALSO: How Well Do You Really Know Warren Buffett?
