Can't do any better than Warren Buffett. As a consolidator of so many different, long-term businesses, doesn't really fit with his portfolio. But if you wanted to buy just 1 stock and hold for 25 years, maybe this is the one you want. Questions on succession.

WEAK BUY

Hard to argue with its results. He owns a lot of the companies that Berkshire does, such as AAPL, CVX, BAC. Quality companies trading at reasonable prices, that pass the test of profitability and growth, with excitement around the business.

He doesn't want to pay the premium to have BRK manage companies for him. May make sense for an individual investor.

BUY

Invested premiums is what's made them money. Now a conglomerate. Very good allocator of capital, good acquisition decisions. Succession is one of the big questions, but seems solid. Very strong company.

We think BRK.B is a very competitive alternative relative to the S&P 500, BRK.B may not be the greatest performer but it protects the downside pretty well. The day will come when someone takes over Mr. Buffet as a succession, which could raise the question of whether the capital allocation decision would be as high-quality as before. But the transition is already in place, really. In terms of breaking up the company, the insider ownership at BRK.B is high, and it is a mega-cap company, so it is hard for any activist to participate in this situation. We think the likelihood of this scenario is quite low. There is a 15% withholding tax on US dividends in a TFSA, but we very highly doubt the company will change its dividend policy and start paying one.

It can pull so many levers, it's magnificent. Apple, Occidental Petroleum and other stock in his portfolio are magnificent. He bought japan at its lows. The company is rooted in car insurance, which can keep raising premiums. Warren Buffett is bulletproof.

WEAK BUY

Still one of the best ever. You'll get a portfolio of very good companies, but very heavily weighted to AAPL now. Still good at what they do. Question becomes about succession. Under Buffett, they'll always have too much cash, he will never overpay for something.

BUY

Core business is insurance. The float gets invested in its diverse portfolio, you can see the list online. Almost a play on the general economy. Probably strong management succession plans. You just need to take a long-term view on the overall economy. Takes away the decision making on securities, BRK does it for you.

COMMENT
Buy US stocks on a Canadian exchange?

No. If you purchase on a Canadian exchange, you're really just neutralizing the currency fluctuation of holding a US security.

His position is that holding US securities in USD is a benefit, as he wants exposure to the US dollar. He doesn't want to limit himself to an economy that represents 3% of the world's wealth. He encourages diversification at every level, including currency.

Likes it, but took profits because it's gone up a lot.

It is a challenging task to just pick 1 stock. Of course, we would never advise any investor to do so. That said, if we HAVE TO pick only one stock to invest the entire portfolio in 10 years without worrying too much about the volatility of the market, we think BRK.B would come to the top of the list due to its fortress balance sheet, a portfolio of well-diversified businesses, and slightly undervaluation. We think BRK.B could do well beyond Buffet, and has a decent chance of doing well against the S&P 500 (BRK.B tends to outperform in bear/flat market, and underperform in bull market).

COMMENT
On pace to become the next $T company, but without any AI.

Old school tech, but tried and true. Berkshire's annual letter to shareholders came out on the weekend. Warren Buffett credited Charlie Munger with being the architect of BRK, while Buffett was more the general contractor. Credits Charlie with changing Warren's mindset from buying fair businesses at wonderful prices, to buying wonderful businesses at fair prices. 

That's what BRK has come to be about. Identifying, buying and owning quality companies over the longer term.

BUY ON WEAKNESS

They've made a big move lately (up 72% in 3 years), but it remain strong and diverse, Wait for weakness to, say $370, to buy more. But if you like this long term, buy it today. Also consider KKR and Brookfield.

Standing on the shoulders of giants. Let other people make some choices for you. Once you buy it, no reason to ever sell unless it becomes too big a position in your portfolio.

We would be very comfortable buying BRK.B either through CDRs or directly. Lower interest rates should help the stock and also its likely ability to do acquisitions with its large cash balance.

Commit new funds?

Hard to bet against, fabulous history. He prefers to own the component parts, namely the top 3 holdings of AAPL, BAC, and CVX. This is not a coincidence, and avoids paying the premium to be part of the Berkshire family. Great management. He wouldn't argue too strongly against buying.
