It's time for more Fast Money Madness! As the NCAA tournament marches on, we're pairing off the most-talked about 64 companies on the street. And we're narrowing it down to a national champion -- Fast Money's favorite stock.

Tonight, the Sweet 16 continues as we turn to the streets of New York City to find the finest in finance.

The big match-up: #1 seed, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK), vs. #12 seed Morgan Stanley (MS).

Eric Bolling and Guy Adami agree that BRK is a steal, even at $108,000 a share. (Warren Buffet doesn’t believe in stock splits).

Karen Finerman says Morgan is her pick, for their short-term upside. She thinks everything is going right for them.

Jeff Macke picks BRK, because, well, Warren Buffet is a legend.

So BRK advances to the Elite 8 and will battle Goldman Sachs (GS). Stay tuned.
