The following video is part of this week's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Jason Moser and Bill Barker, discuss the latest business news. For a long time, Apple was seen as one of the biggest, cash-rich companies that was not paying a dividend. That changed earlier this week, when Apple announced it will begin paying a quarterly dividend of $2.65 a share. In this segment, the guys discuss whether Berkshire Hathaway will be the next to step up and begin paying a dividend.
