Hot Value Stocks To Buy For 2019

Thanks to new accounting rules, Berkshire Hathaway’s(NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B) record first-quarter operating profit looks like a $1.1 billion loss. Confused? In this Industry Focus: Financials clip, Michael Douglass and Matt Frankel break down Berkshire’s first-quarter numbers for you.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on May 7, 2018.

Michael Douglass: The first thing we’re going to talk about today is the fact that Berkshire actually reported a loss in earnings in the documentation leading up to the conference.

Matt Frankel: Yeah. Buffett said in his letter this year, about three months ago, that shareholders shouldn’t pay much attention to Berkshire’s earnings going forward. Basically, there’s an accounting change now that requires what they call unrealized gains on investments, meaning stocks they haven’t sold yet, to be included in earnings figures. As most listeners know, the stock market did not have a great first quarter to 2018. This was especially true for some of Buffett’s stocks. Wells Fargo had a particularly bad time. Coca-Cola, Kraft Heinz are all doing pretty poorly. This made Berkshire look like they lost over $1 billion, when in reality, their operating earnings, which is the earnings that are actually being generated by its businesses, grew to a record high level, up almost 50% year over year. It was actually about a $5 billion profit, and the change in value of the company’s stock portfolio made it look like a loss.
