The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.
Jason and Brendan are heading to Omaha! That’s right, the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting awaits, and in preparation, Jason asks Brendan to pick a company with characteristics consistent with the Buffett style of investing that could make a great fit for Berkshire's portfolio. Brendan thinks that an underappreciated company -- United Technologies -- could be an ideal fit. The company has a wide moat around it, has demonstrated strong and consistent earnings and ROE for the past decade-plus, and is currently selling for cheap.
