Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A)‘s Warren Buffet has had to face some disappointment to the tune of $280 million from his investment in the energy giant, Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM).

” Buffet increased his position in Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) earlier this year. The stock is down nearly 7% in 2014, in part due to the losses in October. Shares are now rebounding and that is good news for Berkshire, which has nearly $4 billion invested in the oil company. Exxon’s latest earnings beat a couple of weeks ago was good news as well […],” reported Marino.

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) is among the biggest oil companies in the world. Oil prices are a significant factor with regards to profitability of these companies and from the looks of it they are still struggling to find their support level.
