Good candidate for a long-term hold. A portfolio of investments across many sectors. Nice way to play the general economy. As a portfolio manager, she prefers to make more direct investments in areas she's interested in.

Commercial property insurance is getting better. A hardening price environment. One of the 3 largest global reinsurers. Strongest balance sheet, so can charge the highest prices and give the most coverage. Strong cyclical exposure is a good play on recovering economy. Returns capital to shareholders by buying back shares. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $281.00)

Rebounded this year. A bet on US GDP improving. Reasonably priced. He wants to see what are they going to do with all this money, does Warren still have "it", is he going to promote his lieutenants. He'd rather own pure-play businesses. Buy it here, own it till the end of time, and you'll do fine.

(A Top Pick Jan 29/20, Up 4%) It's underperformed in the past 6 months because of the tech rally, but he expects this story to flip as Berkshire's hard assets will outperform the Nasdaq. So, now is a good time to own this. Also, he gets exposed to Apple via BRK. (He sold Apple given their high valuation.)

It's done so well over the years, you buy it when others don't want it, there's a lid on the price, and there's some negative press. He wouldn't bet against them.

They bought their first shares of this just very recently. Warren Buffet is very much not in favour with his investment style and investors were disappointed when they did not acquire anything during the market meltdown. Now is a perfect to time to buy a collection of wonderful private and public companies at the most attractive valuation -- 1.2 times book value. They also have a large cash position and not much debt. Apple has been the most successful investment they made in the past several years -- representing over 1/3 of the portfolio value. He is not concerned about the concentration in Apple. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $221.00)

This morning Buffet spent about $4 Billion on gas assets. The space is completely beat up. Buffet bought Nat Gas assets that were pipelines, i.e. infrastructure assets. Since you can’t easily replicate the business, it should do fairly well. He thinks BRK-N will do very well with this. The leader is the best capital allocator of all time.

One of the most successfully companies over several decades. They have struggled over the past couple of years. This does not mean they have lost their touch. Mr. Buffet takes a long term perspective that does not always match quarterly performance measures. If you own it, keep it.

Mr. Buffet says you should never bet against the US. He made a mistake on the US airlines and he admitted that and got out completely. If you want a defensive anchor in your portfolio then what better is this one. This is an attractive opportunity here.

This is a durable company. Half the business is focused on ultimate conservative businesses like insurance and utilities. This is a great longer term investment. They won't be immune to recent economic impacts, but he likes their diversified revenue stream.

BRK.B vs. DG Both somewhat defensive, but DG more so. S&P has outperformed BRK.B, mainly because it has a bit more torque. In the near term, BRK.B has more beta, so it will outperform if there's a market bounce. Be barbelled, and still hold a defensive name. Over the next 12-24 months, still likes DG.
