    Cruising For Deals At The BRK Tradeshow

    Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting kicked off Friday and, as luck would have it, one of the 27,000 (tiny) fractional owners of the company is a DealBreaker reader. Curtis Walker has been liveblogging the jamboree, which, in year’s past, has included Warren Buffett losing to an 11 year old at ping pong, and teaching a […]

    Warren Buffett Is Either A (pick one):

    MarketWatch’s David Weidner has finally narrowed down the choices and now you must choose between the two: liar or genocidal maniac? Human-rights groups said they were disappointed Darfur didn’t figure into Buffett’s decision. Don’t believe a word of it…If it were all about the profit, Buffett, by his own admission, left money on the table. […]

    At Least One Subsidiary of Citic Group Does Not Consider Itself Too Good To Be Seen in Public With Bear Stearns

    Though China Citic Bank Corp, the banking unit of China Citic Group, said as recently as Thursday that it hadn’t spoken with Bear Stearns about buying a stake in the awesomely declining Madison Avenue stock, nor did it plan to “in the next three months,” China’s Citic Securities Co., another unit of Citic Group*, agreed […]

    Buffett Denies Bear Interest, Objectifies PetroChina

    In an interview with Liz Claman’s sweater puppets Thursday on Fox, Warren Buffett rebuffed the rumor that Berkshire Hathaway is considering a stake in Bear Stearns, following Citic’s denial on Thursday of having any desire to purchase shares of the precipitously declining stock. Referring to a New York Times article from last month that claimed […]

    Did This Billboard Get Buffett To Sell PetroChina? The ‘WSJ’ Says Maybe.

    Having cut its stake to 652.9 million shares, down from 2.3 billion at the end of 2006, Berkshire Hathaway now owns less than 5 percent of PetroChina, and won’t be required to file additional updates on stock sales, leading analysts to believe that the rest of it could have been sold already. Some people want […]

    You Know How We Feel About This

    Warren Buffett has once again reduced Berkshire Hathaway’s stake in PetroChina. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is the sixth time since July that Buffett has sold shares in the oil and gas producer, this time unloading 220.5 million worth about $362 million, at an average price of HK$12.80 each.

    Why Doesn’t Warren Buffett Want To Fund Genocide Anymore?

    For reasons totally lost on us, Warren Buffett has once again scaled back Berkshire Hathaway’s stake in PetroChina. In July, Berk sold holdings in the company worth $27 million. Last week, it was $136 million. And just today, 28 million shares valued at $40 million, reducing BRK’s interest to a paltry 8.93 percent from over […]

    Google bigger than Berkshire

    From the WSJ’s MarketBeat column, Google is bigger than Berkshire Hathaway in terms of market cap. Coming off the second worst week of the year for stocks, and the end of the 14 quarter streak of double-digit earnings growth for S&P companies, Google now has a market cap of $166.3bn and Berkshire Hathaway has a […]

    Buffet to shareholders: No, I will not play “Freebird”

    Clogging up O’Hare, Charon to the Midwest, one puddle jumper at a time, over 25,000 people descended upon Omaha this weekend for Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting. Nicknamed the “Woodstock of Capitalism,” Warren Buffet did headline this year’s event with a little ukulele playing (although he didn’t light it on fire afterwards, or play with […]

    Berkshire Hathaway Stock Price As An Agency Cost

    The stunningly high price of Berkshire Hathaway stock—now over $100,000—might make many companies consider a stock split. Investors like splits because they can make the equity trade easier. There’s a far more limited numbers of buyers for a stock priced at $100K than at $100. But Berkshire Hathaway has refused to split its stock despite […]

    Not-So-Live from Omaha

    As you may have noticed, much of the financial press is in Omaha at the moment, attending the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. We’re not in Omaha because, well, it’s Omaha, but we were hoping there would be some interesting reports from the inside. (Then we remembered that the correlation between People Who Would Attend a […]
