Things Are Going Great for Wabtec

With a brand-new chairman and president -- and a stock-split and improved dividend yield to boot -- everything seems to be going great for Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies¬† (NYSE: WAB  ) this week. Shareholders are up 60% over the past year, and the company's got one of the fastest projected growth rates in the whole railroad equipment supply industry.

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.
