Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE:BRK.B) is a holding company owning subsidiaries in a variety of business sectors. In the last three months, Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE:BRK.B) stock gained 12.6% and on March 5th it had a closing price of $253.15. Here is what the fund said:

“Berkshire Hathaway’s wide collection of businesses held up okay last year, though its stock trailed the market with a modest 2.4% return. Book value per share, the most relevant metric for Berkshire, increased an estimated 9%, while the ratio of its stock price to book value remains quite low compared to its historical average. While owning good, cash-generating businesses at reasonable prices can be decidedly uncool in a soaring market, history suggests that this works out well in the long run.”
