Gregg Warren says share repurchases and dividends as the only way for Berkshire to meaningfully reduce its cash balances in the near term.
Greggory Warren: A big topic for us of late with regard to wide-moat rated Berkshire Hathaway is the company's growing cash hoard and the changes it could produce in capital allocation decisions longer term.
With the firm expected to generate $5 billion to $10 billion in quarterly free cash flows going forward, and valuations for both public and private businesses elevated, we envision Berkshire surpassing the $150 billion balance sheet cash threshold that CEO Warren Buffett said would be difficult for him to defend longer term.
