Breaking News

In this week’s investment news:

 

1) Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway’s AGM 2015 is underway just as I am typing this post!

Berkshire’s record speaks for itself. Over the last 50 years, per-share book value has grown from $19 to $146,186, a rate of 19.4% compounded annually (For Berkshire’s A shares). Woah, just woah. And just for your information, as at 1 May 2015, one Berkshire A share traded at US$215,800!

For a better appreciation of how far Berkshire’s reach extends to, check out this Bloomberg article. Berkshire has businesses all the way from utilities, insurance, carpets, railways and even paint! And this doesn’t even include it’s wide portfolio of listed equities!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading one of Warren Buffett’s letters to shareholders, well you are in for a treat with the link to his 2014 Letter right HERE.

To follow the events that have unfolded during the AGM, you can check out this link – a live blog of the event!

Did we also mention that one of VIA founders – Stanley is right there in the middle of the action! We can’t wait to hear about his experience from one of the best AGMs that a value investor could possibly attend!

2) Grexit. Not Again?

Following up on our highlight on this last week, Grexit is like the news that just keeps on giving!

Now there’s even a poll conducted by Reuters on money market traders with a 40% chance of Greece exiting the euro zone. If a bank run happens, things might get even uglier. Fast.

 

 

Have a great Sunday 🙂
