Berkshire Hathaway has made around $358 million on Apple

by Julia La Roche

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B) has made around $358.6 million (on paper) on its large investment in Apple (AAPL).

On Tuesday evening, Apple smashed Wall Street analysts’ earning expectations and surpassed estimates for iPhone sales. The tech giant’s stock was last trading up around 5.3%, up $6.43, at $127.78 per share.

Assuming Berkshire hasn’t bought or sold shares in the past four months, its position in Apple—which is over 15.22 million shares—is currently valued at $1.94 billion.

Berkshire Hathaway, which has historically avoided investing in technology companies, snapped up a large position in Apple stock last year.

Berkshire Hathaway began building the position during the first quarter of 2016, buying just over 9.8 million shares, a regulatory filing posted last May showed. The average purchase price is unclear.

During the second quarter, Berkshire Hathaway increased its position by 55%, adding more than 5.4 million more shares. The position was unchanged during the third quarter. Data for the fourth quarter is not yet available.

Back in November, Buffett was asked at an event for undergraduate and graduate students in Omaha why he doesn’t invest in technology companies.

The “Oracle of Omaha” hinted that his investment deputies— Ted Weschler and Todd Combs— are responsible for buying Apple, according to notes posted by Dr. David Kass, a professor of finance at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business:

“Ted (Weschler) and Todd (Combs) each have about $9 billion to invest. One or more invested in Apple. With Apple, people get hooked on things that they like. [Buffett] has a competitive edge within his circle of competence (which does not include tech companies).

His circle grows wider over time but outside of his circle tech people know better than he does. [Buffett] mentioned that he did not invest in Microsoft even though it had no cost of goods sold and was earning a ‘royalty on the world’ since the world needed its operating system.”

Buffett said in an interview with Charlie Rose that aired on Friday that he bought $12 billion worth of stock since Donald J. Trump won the election. He didn’t name the stocks. Regulatory filings for the fourth quarter are expected to come out in mid-February.

Best Stocks to Buy: Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B)

by Elyka Haryani

Dividend Yield: N/A
Long-Term Growth: 8.8%

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) might be a peculiar stock to add to a list of stocks to buy forever. After all, Warren Buffett is getting up there in years, and he won’t be running the company for much longer unless we find a way to clone him (I’m keeping my fingers crossed).

Alas, I don’t see that as being likely. The truth is, we have to get used to the idea of a Berkshire without Buffett

That’s OK. The empire that Buffett built is a durable one that will be around long after the Oracle has left us. Buffett has almost always eschewed technology companies (with his purchase of IBM being a glaring and unfortunate exception) because they are prone to disruption.

Most of Berkshire’s portfolio is full of boring, old-line business like consumer staples and insurance. Berkshire Hathaway also has interests in trains and utilities and in niche businesses like Nebraska Furniture Mart and See’s Candies.

Nothing about Buffett’s empire is interesting. It’s as boring as Buffett’s home state of Nebraska itself. And that’s exactly why I like Berkshire and consider it a safe stock to buy and hold forever.

Best Growth Stocks for Retirement: Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B)

It might seem odd to include Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.B) — which is run by legendary value investor Warren Buffett — on a list of growth stocks. But in looking at the company’s returns, it only makes sense.

From 1964 to 2016, Berkshire Hathaway’s book value was up an eye-popping 884,319% and its market value 1,972,595%. To put that in perspective, the S&P 500 is up about 12,717% over the same period.

Buffett has also never paid a dividend, believing that the cash would be better spent on new investment opportunities by Buffett himself. In retrospect, it’s hard to argue with him.

Despite its stodgy, conservative reputation, Berkshire Hathaway is very much a growth stock. Unfortunately, Mr. Buffett won’t be with us forever.

I don’t believe the Oracle will ever hang up his hat. He’s far more likely to die with his boots on, doing what he does best until the very end. But the man is also 86 years old, so we have to ponder life after Buffett.

Buffett has built a solid portfolio of operating businesses run by capable people and has already started delegating some of the day-to-day portfolio management to Ted Weschler and Todd Combs. And Buffett is famous for preferring “idiot-proof” businesses that should perform well long after the Oracle is no longer with us.

In his own words, “When a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.”

Berkshire should be a solid choice as a long-term growth stock for retirement.

10 More Retirement Stocks to Hold Forever: Berkshire Hathaway (BRK)

We’ll start with Buffett’s company itself. It did look for a while like the “Oracle of Omaha” might have lost his magic.

Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway actually underperformed the S&P 500 between the beginning of 2008 and the start of 2016. The above-market returns Buffett and partner Charlie Munger had provided for decades seemed to have come to an end.

But BRK has rallied of late, gaining nearly 30% over the past year. Investment managers Ted Weschler and Todd Combs have an increasing amount of responsibility for the portfolio – and are doing quite well themselves.

Berkshire’s wholly-owned businesses provide significant diversification, with the insurance business (notably GEICO) in particular providing a defensive component as well.

Admittedly, Berkshire Hathaway stock doesn’t pay a dividend, with Buffett long arguing that he and Munger were the best stewards of excess profits.

But he changed his tune somewhat at this year’s annual meeting, with Berkshire having the enviable problem of too much cash and not enough compelling investments.

Potential retirement income and ownership of a world-class portfolio of assets would be an enticing combination, but with or without a dividend, Berkshire stock is a worthwhile long-term buy.

Best Stocks to Buy for the Next Decade: Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B)

Warren Buffett is 87 years old. Eventually, he’s going to step out of the game. The argument is that his departure will create a panic that will send Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) stock spiraling downward.

Personally, I don’t subscribe to that theory.

Businesses — whether it be a huge holding company like Buffett’s or something much less grandiose — are valued by calculating the present value of its future cash flows. Berkshire Hathaway’s are significant.

Another way is to value a business is to look at the sum of all its parts.

Berkshire Hathaway owns hundreds of businesses; each of these firms, if sold at auction, would be worth more than the current stock price would seem to reflect.

If Buffett moved on and the company was broken up in a prudent manner over an extended period, Berkshire Hathaway investors would benefit greatly from such a process.

The best part of Berkshire Hathaway? You get a quasi-mutual fund with a diversified group of holdings and no management fees.

That’s the best kind of buy-and-hold investment.
