2014 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting

We bring Berkshire to you with our on-the-spot meeting coverage.

If you didn't make the pilgrimage to the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting this year, has the next best thing: on-the-ground coverage from Omaha.

Check out our meeting blog and breaking video reports featuring commentary from Morningstar's Berkshire analysts Greggory Warren and Vincent Lui, Morningstar StockInvestor editor Matt Coffina, and markets editor Jeremy Glaser.

We also posted plenty of Berkshire coverage in the week leading up to the meeting, including our analysts latest thinking on succession planning, the firm's cash position, its competitive advantages, and more. We also took a look at managers who have successfully bought stocks like Buffett and which managers are still making big bets on Berkshire itself.
