Berkshire Without Buffett

One of the benefits of attending the Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B  ) shareholders' meeting is learning from the great value investors and Buffettologists who also make the yearly trek to Omaha. In this multipart series, Fool analyst Rex Moore speaks with Lawrence Cunningham, author of The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America. The book offers a unique approach by arranging all of Buffett's shareholder letters thematically, rather than chronologically.

Today, Professor Cunningham talks about what might happen to Berkshire shares when Buffett is gone.

    I don't see how there is any doubt that Berkshire won't plummet once Warren departs (god forbid he never does, I believe he is secretly a wizard). I will be investing a large portion of my savings into BRK once the price plummets within the next 20 years. The chef might be gone but the kitchen is still there.
