Berkshire's Latest Big Buy

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.

Warren Buffett's long track record of success has made him one of the best investors of all time. With Buffett at the helm, Berkshire Hathaway has grown book value per share at a compounded annual rate of 19.8% for nearly 50 years! Despite an incredible historical track record, investors have to understand the key issues to watch moving forward. To help investors, The Fool's resident Berkshire Hathaway expert, Joe Magyer, has created this premium research report on the company. Inside you'll receive ongoing updates as key news hits, as well as reasons to both buy and sell the stock. Claim a copy by clicking here now.
