Speculating on Buffett's Next Acquisition

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 speculates on Berkshire's next big acquisition.

Meanwhile, solid companies selling at depressed prices have consistently helped generations of the world's most successful investors preserve capital, minimize risk, and achieve long-term, market-trampling returns.

    I absolutely detest that you consistently put out these teasers on browser pages and then require that a video be watched. I simply don't do well with video (more people than you think are in that category) and much prefer being able to read actual words. Bottom line is that I don't watch the videos and I feel 2nd classs.

    Is Warren tired of destroying family businesses and taking them over?

    I'm sure you know the reason he is the biggest fan of the estate (death) tax, right? His companies move in and buy family businesses that can't afford the death tax and then spits them back out for a profit. He doesn't like paying taxes himself but sure wants others to get nailed.

    Although he has done very well in business I think he is a pathetic human being that has very low moral character.
