S&P Cuts Rating on Berkshire Hathaway
Alternative methods have some use, but we think discounted cash flow is the most fundamentally sound way to value the conglomerate, as we discuss in the final installment of our 5-part series.
In Part 4 of a 5-part series, Morningstar's Gregg Warren and Drew Woodbury say valuing Berkshire's insurance and investment units using the float method is hypothetically an improvement, but in practice a number of important problems pop up.
We'd like to see Buffett address future acquisitions, his take on the economy, the firm's succession plan, and more at this year's annual meeting.
Although these three firms might be too small for Berkshire, they have great competitive advantages, and our analysts think they're cheap, too.
