Berkshire Hathaway is a holding company with a wide array of subsidiaries engaged in diverse activities. The firm's core business segment is insurance, run primarily through Geico, Berkshire Hathaway Reinsurance Group, and Berkshire Hathaway Primary Group. Berkshire has used the excess cash thrown off from these and its other operations over the years to acquire Burlington Northern Santa Fe (railroad), Berkshire Hathaway Energy (utilities and energy distributors), and the firms that make up its manufacturing, service, and retailing operations (which include five of Berkshire's largest noninsurance pretax earnings generators: Precision Castparts, Lubrizol, Clayton Homes, Marmon, and IMC/ISCAR). The conglomerate is unique in that it is run on a completely decentralized basis. Show more

Berkshire pares huge Apple stake as cash, operating profit set records

"SHM: OMAHA, Neb. (Reuters) - Berkshire Hathaway significantly reduced its enormous stake in Apple in the first quarter, as Warren Buffett's conglomerate let its cash hoard swell to a record $189 billion."

Buffett's company also posted a record operating profit exceeding $11 billion, as its insurance operations benefited from improved underwriting and higher income from investments as interest rates rose.Based on changes in Apple's stock price, Berkshire appears to have sold about 115 million shares, or 13% of its holdings, in the quarter, ending with about 790 million."

The subject of BNSF vs UP comes up occasionally at the annual SH meeting Q&A session in Omaha. Shareholders have asked Warren why UNP's numbers are often somewhat better than BNSF's. Buffett has made it clear that he thinks UP's a damn well run operation.

Cat (see below) is spectacular. My similar DE has been almost as good. That's one Buffett should have held onto with his son Howard's connection to Deere and farming.. But large and mega cap blue chips in general have been the place to be in the past few years. My son just bought some Union Pacific at $200; it's now $250. I told him that was a "Buffett stock" for sure. The bulk of my money has been in large cap index funds for decades. Only small caps and microcaps have lagged and I leave those for our local penny stock gamblers,

You are aware I track and chart stuff, right?
I don't care what your sons do. I'm telling you the facts.
You don't see it as much in S&P index ETFs, but it's more apparent in some of the 2X bears and bull stuff.

If you wish to disagree with me, that's fine. But I can do without all the histrionics. Your engineer and CPA sons I'm sure don't have the time to track investments like I do. Just as my supervisor of engineers daughter just calls me for help with her investments.
And you've admitted you are a buy and hold guy.

Most ETF's are merely Hedge funds in drag.

bar1080 bar1080 3 months ago
LORD! Indexes track exactly, but index FUNDS ALWAYS have some microscopic tracking error.

Indexes can't be bought directly so an investor can only approximate them via a fund like a mutual fund or an ETF. Variation in stock weighting and rebalancing is inevitable. Also funds must keep cash reserves for redemptions. Those reserves will be a slight drag in rising markets and a benefit in falling ones. Even buying all 500 (or more correctly 503) stocks in the S&P won't produce a perfect match.

I really try to help IHUBers, often uninformed gamblers, but it's not easy.

I bought my first Index fund around 1990 when very few people knew of their advantages. My two sons -- an engineer and a CPA -- have had money in index funds since right after they were born. Now, as adults, their retirement money is mostly indexed, and they have no interest in changing that.

"Had to do the split to maintain affordability."

Also Buffett was somewhat irked by the investment companies who were offering (alleged) shadow funds tracking BRK shares with much lower entry points, so the split was a way of countering that too.

"So in 1996, chief executive officer (CEO) Warren Buffett and the board responded by issuing 517,500 shares of Class B shares. This allowed anyone interested to invest in the company for 1/30th the price (and equity) of a Class A share of stock. "

A 50-to-1 stock split in 2010 sent the ratio to 1/1,500th, which means each share of a Class A common stock was convertible at any time to 1,500 shares of Class B common stock.

"Class B shares carried correspondingly lower voting rights as well (of the voting rights of a Class A share 1/200th of the per-share voting rights. later changed to 1/10,000th) and Buffett marketed Class B shares as a long-term investment and as an open-ended offering, so as to prevent volatility as a result of supply concerns.

In 1962, Warren Buffett began buying stock in Berkshire Hathaway after noticing it was statistically undervalued. Buffett bought the stock with the idea that as Berkshire closed textile mills and freed capital, there would be a tender offer at some point and they could sell the stock for a profit. Eventually, Buffett acknowledged that the textile business was waning and the company's financial situation was not going to improve. In 1964, Stanton made an oral tender offer to buy back Buffett's stake in the company for $111/2 per share. Buffett agreed to the deal. A few weeks later, Warren Buffett received the tender offer in writing, but the tender offer was for only $113/8. Buffett later admitted that this lower, undercutting offer made him angry.[16] Instead of selling at the slightly lower price, Buffett decided to buy more of the stock to take control of the company and fire Stanton (which he did). However, this made Buffett the majority owner of a failing textile business.

Buffett initially maintained Berkshire's core business of textiles, but by 1967, he was expanding into the insurance industry and other investments. Berkshire first ventured into the insurance business with the purchase of National Indemnity Company. In the late 1970s, Berkshire acquired an equity stake in the Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO), which forms the core of its insurance operations today (and is a major source of capital for Berkshire Hathaway's other investments). In 1985, the last textile operations (Hathaway's historic core) were shut down.[17]

Buffett has described purchasing Berkshire Hathaway as the biggest investment mistake he had ever made, denying him compounded investment returns of about $200 billion over the subsequent 45 years.[16] He has estimated that had he invested the same money directly in insurance businesses instead of buying out Berkshire Hathaway (due to what he perceived as a slight by an individual), it would have paid off several hundredfold

This from Quora seems accurate:

"Berkshire Hathaway was in business since the 1830s. "Its stock was traded prior to the establishment of the SEC and the registration requirements in the 1930s, so it never filed for an IPO as companies now do."

The SEC was created in 1934. Likely original Berkshire shares were first issued in certificated form under state law to a handful of company insiders and traded OTC very thinly. I made a page to explain the "B" shares which were created in 1996 in connection with BRK's huge acquisition of the BN railroad.

Investors who bought $1,000 of Amazon shares at the time of its IPO could have bought 18.55 AMZN shares based on the $18 price point.

Stock splits of Amazon in June 1998 (2:1), January 1999 (3:1), September 1999 (2:1) and June 2022 (20:1) would have turned the 18.55 AMZN shares into 13,334.4 shares today.

Based on a price of $113.92 for Amazon shares at the time of writing, the $1,000 investment would be worth $1,519,054.85 today.

AMZN is currently at $153.

??? How old are you? "I had bought shares of it when it first came out, " Berkshire Hathaway dates back to the 1830s, Buffett started buying in the around 1960s when it was a textile mill and shirt maker trading OTC. You can find varying dates on this but mostly unreliable info from Quora, and such.

From Nasdaq.com

"If you invested $100 in 1965...
When Buffett took control of Berkshire Hathaway in 1965, shares were valued at about $19. Today, Class A shares trade for around $459,800, which represents a mind-boggling return of 2,419,900%. That means $100 invested in 1965 would now be worth roughly $2.42 million."

See this from Quora which seems accurate:
"Berkshire Hathaway was in business since the 1830s. Its stock was traded prior to the establishment of the SEC and the registration requirements in the 1930s, so it never filed for an IPO as companies now do."
