Warren Buffett is scheduled for a live interview on CNBC television this coming Wednesday morning at 11:45a ET on The Call. Squawk Box's Becky Quick will be speaking with Buffett in New York City, just before his lunch with last year's charity auction high bidder.
Warren Buffett confirms to CNBC's Becky Quick that Berkshire Hathaway has made changes to some of its controversial bets on the long-term health of stocks. Buffett told Becky last night by telephone that roughly $2 billion of put options on the benchmark S&P 500 stock index have been altered. Changes have also been made to a derivative on a foreign stock index, but he's not saying which one. The new contracts have a lower strike price but cover a shorter time period.
Andrew Ross Sorkin, DealBook editor for The New York Times, writes about his simple takeaway from Warren Buffett at this weekend's Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting.
As part of CNBC's coverage of tomorrow's Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting, two of the afternoon programs discussed a question we've been hearing in recent months: Has Warren Buffett lost his way? And does he get a "free pass" from the media? Take a look at the video clips.
Berkshire Hathaway's market value may be down about 30 percent since last year's shareholders meeting, and the economy may be the pits, but Omaha will still be this weekend's hot destination for Warren Buffett fans.
In a conversation published today focusing on why he likes Wells Fargo, Warren Buffett told Fortune's Adam Lashinsky: "We own stock in four banks: USB, Wells, M&T, and SunTrust." That raised a question. What about the five million Bank of America shares owned by Berkshire Hathaway as of the end of last year? We now have the answer to the 'mystery' of the 'missing' B of A shares, straight from Buffett himself.
In his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, Warren Buffett says he did some "dumb things in investments" last year, while defending Berkshire's "equity put" derivatives contracts. Buffett also predicts the economy will "be in shambles throughout 2009 - and for that matter, probably well beyond - but that conclusion does not tell us whether the stock market will rise or fall." He's still optimistic for the long-term, however, again pointing out that "our country has faced far worse travails in the past" but always "we've overcome them." He says confidently, "America's best days lie ahead."
There may be a reason there wasn’t more infrastructure spending in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Members of Congress may have been fearful about just whom they would be helping if they spent more money on big public works projects. Why? Because they could face the prospects of having to defend allotting taxpayer money which gives jobs to illegal immigrants.
