Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is undervalued

Investors have been cheered by the 2015 annual report – here’s why.

Summary: Investors would be happy with Berkshire Hathaway's annual report, with the stock gaining two per cent and still looking attractive at 1.3 times book value. Despite declines in the value of its equity portfolio with key holdings like American Express and IBM in the red so far this year, analysts believe book value could hit as high as $167,000 by year’s end.

Key take out: It’s not unreasonable to expect BRKA could expand its book value by close to 10 per cent each year into the future.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
