”Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” – Warren Buffett
Many of us idolize what Warren Buffett has built in his nearly 50 years of running his company, Berkshire Hathaway. Those who were fortunate to invest in his company stock when it was first issued heavily reaped the capital gains. Over 250 times their money from the first IPO. Imagine how many smart investors were able to afford homes, yatchs, cars, and school funds just from owning a few of those shares!
The real question that you’ve come for is how can you own a piece of the company without dishing out an entire mortgage worth of money for one share?
Berkshire Hathaway’s B class shares.
Yes! There is a second class of shares for every day people like ourselves to invest in. The share price as of this post is $209.19. It is slightly costly but it isn’t expensive. The stock price has gained nearly ten times return since its issuing. If you are looking to get a piece of Warren Buffett’s stock, NYSE:BRK.B shares are the way to go. From the looks of it, BRK.B doesn’t have any intentions to work against you. The only difference between NYSE:BRK.A and BRK.B (besides the obvious price difference) is that BRK.B is capable of having stock splits. Which means, you shouldn’t expect your $200 stock to reach $200,000. What you can expect is to get more opportunities to purchase more shares of Berkshire while getting increasing capital gains for years to come.
Until next time,
Live Long and Prosperous.
