It Pays to Be a Part of Buffett's Favorite Banks

In the following video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer discusses the announcement that Berkshire Hathaway  (NYSE: BRK-B  ) is issuing new debt, with Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS  ) and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC  ) as the book runners on the deal. Berkshire owns a stake in both banks, and Warren Buffett thinks very highly of both. Matt tells us why it pays to be on Buffett's favorite list.

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.

    I could be wrong on this, but from what I have read, Warren Buffett no longer has any money invested in Goldman Sachs. I believe GS repaid the money they had borrowed from Berkshire Hathaway, albeit at a tidy profit for BRK.
