This Is One of Warren Buffett's Worst Money Mistakes Ever?

On May 3, Warren Buffett will take dozens of questions from Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B  ) (NYSE: BRK-A  ) shareholders during the company's annual shareholder meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. A handful of Motley Fool analysts will journey to the meeting to hear Warren Buffett's investing wisdom.

In the following video, Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Brendan Mathews, two of the analysts that will be attending the meeting, discuss what they hope to hear from Buffett during the famous Q&A session. Brendan details why he wants to hear a more in-depth explanation from Buffett regarding Berkshire Hathaway's purchases of IBM stock during the past several years. IBM is one of Berkshire's largest stock positions, but the investment hasn't been a fruitful one yet. David wonders if these purchases could ultimately be one of the few investing mistakes Buffett has made during his long and successful career. Brendan and David also touch on the "Bear" case that is set to be presented during the meeting. Each year, Buffett invites one person to make the argument against investing in Berkshire Hathaway for the long-term.
