Warren Buffett, the legendary investor and chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway
Buffett says the treatments, which will begin in mid-July, will restrict his travel but won't otherwise affect his daily routine. Presumably, this means that Buffett still intends to participate in Berkshire's upcoming annual meeting, which is attended by tens of thousands and widely lauded as "Woodstock for Capitalists." The jarring news sent shares of Berkshire down around 2% in after-hours trading.
