LIVE From Omaha: The Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting

Every year, Warren Buffett and his right-hand man Charlie Munger spend hours answering questions about investing, business, and life at Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-A  ) (NYSE: BRK-B  ) annual meeting. There are, however, no live cameras rolling, nor are there official transcripts, so if you want to hear what the Oracle has to say, you have to be in Omaha.

Lucky for you, we have a team of Foolish analysts ringside at the Berkshire meeting, so even if you can't make it in person, you can follow along with all of the action.

Time to buy Berkshire?
Thanks to the savvy of investing legend Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway's book value per share has grown a mind-blowing 586,817% over the past 48 years. But with Buffett aging and Berkshire rapidly evolving, is this insurance conglomerate still a buy today? In The Motley Fool's premium report on the company, Berkshire expert Joe Magyer provides investors with key reasons to buy as well as important risks to watch out for. Click here now for instant access to Joe's take on Berkshire!

    The BRKs strike me as similar to a growth mutual fund without the mgmt fees. Is this a reasonable comparison?

    Hey guys! Thanks for doing this!

    Am most grateful for you guys providing this live service to us fellow Fools....

    Just a few thoughts:

    1. Warren is now the single largest shareholder in Tesco PLC at 5.1% of the company. I wonder if you Motley Fools guys have any opinion or thoughts on this?

    2. Or the fact that Tesco's 2012 annual profits have fallen 52% (partly due to the write down on the US Fresh n Easy business and on the UK property portfolio/land bank)?

    3. Warren is also the single largest shareholder at Munich Re-insurance (11.2%) and BYD (10%). Do you Fool guys have any opinions about these shareholdings?

    3. If any of these issues do come up in the Berkshire Q&A session, and Warren comments on them could you guys jot them down here on the Motley Fool feed please?


    And keep up the good work guys!

    I can't believe I just read that Buffet said that Global Warming (Climate Change) doesn't affect their setting of insurance rates. This question has been a huge concern to me. I have to re-think my holding of Berkshire.
