Questions We'd Like to Hear at Berkshire's Annual Meeting
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.
The main focus of Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A) (BRK.B) annual meeting is the question-and-answer segment that Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger hold, where the two men have for a number of years fielded questions from a trio of financial journalists and from shareholders themselves (via a lottery). In an added twist, Berkshire included a panel of three analysts who cover Berkshire's stock in the Q&A segment last year.
The panel remains in place for this year's meeting, as well, but has been tweaked a little to include one insurance analyst from the sell-side (Cliff Gallant of Nomura Securities (NMR)), one generalist analyst from the buy-side (Jonathan Brandt of Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb--the investment firm behind
Sequoia (SEQUX)), and an analyst/investor who is bearish on Berkshire (which we now know will be Doug Kass, founder of the hedge fund firm Seabreeze Partners Management).
