The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, the guys discuss some major buys and sells by Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A ) today, including the sell-offs of the company's entire positions in Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ ) and General Electric (NYSE: GE ) , and the purchase of a major stake in Deere & Company (NYSE: DE ) . We hear about which of these decisions were most likely Warren Buffett driven, and whether or not the pullouts from JNJ and GE were simply because it was felt they could get more value for their money elsewhere, or if there was something deeper going on.
