Berkshire Hathaway: A stock that even indexers can like (TheGlobeAndMail)
Today I’m a full-fledged index investor, but there was a time when I owned some individual stocks. What was my favourite company back then? Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A) I was a devoted fan. For more than a dozen years, whenever its share price dropped, I scurried to buy more. By 2011, my Berkshire holdings had grown to $370,000 (U.S.). Like most stock investors, I had my reasons for owning it, but one in particular might surprise you. To me, it was an index fund on speed.
