Buy Berkshire Hathaway


About Berkshire Hathaway (BKRB)

Founded by legendary investor Warren Buffet, the company was a conglomerate of textile mills as recently as 1962. Over the ensuing years, Buffet acquired a majority stake and in 1967 started diversifying by taking equity stakes in other businesses, or buying them outright. 

Berkshire Hathaway now has investments in many privately-held companies, including GEICO, Dairy Queen, Pampered Chef, Fruit of the Loom, and NetJets, as well as in public companies such as Amazon, Apple, Wrigley, Coca Cola and many more. 

Berkshire Hathaway stock price

Berkshire Hathaway believes in reinvesting all profits from the companies and stocks it owns into more asset purchases. Over the years, Berkshire Hathaway has produced extraordinary capital growth for investors (over 2.7 million % between 1965 and 2019) due to this compounding effect. 

Berkshire Hathaway Shares - Class A stock or 'BRK.A' - are now worth over $250,000 ($286,140 at the time of writing) each. For most investors, that's just not affordable.

That is why in 1996 Buffet created a new class of share called Berkshire Hathaway Class B Stock (BRK.B) at a more affordable price.  

What the bears are saying

  • Warren Buffet is 89: The legendary investor has been sharing his investment philosophy for years but hasn't nominated a successor yet.  
  • Diversification makes it tricky to keep track of investment performance: With so many investments, how does Berkshire Hathaway keep track of them for continued top performance?
  • There are better value shares to buy: Berkshire Hathaway shares command a high price due to the stellar reputation and track record of Buffet?  

What the bulls are saying

  • There’s no stopping Berkshire Hathaway: Berkshire Hathaway has been one of the most successful and profitable companies in the world for years. There’s no sign of it slowing down. 
  • Diversity gives safety AND growth: Berkshire Hathaway is remarkably diversified and well-placed to absorb economic shocks. 
  • It has a big future: Because BH doesn’t pay dividends and instead reinvests all its profits, it is expected to continue compounding in value.
