"General Mills definitely qualifies as the elusive "elephant" Buffett has been trying to bag the past few years."
Buffett will still be running Berkshire Hathaway one year from now.
This has been my best prediction for the past two years and I see no reason not to go for a three-peat, although each year there's a greater chance it will be proved wrong. Even though he will turn 84 in August, Buffett is showing no signs of slowing down and still says "I truly do feel like tap-dancing to work every day."
The mayor of New Bedford, Mass., wants to save Berkshire Hathaway's old headquarters from demolition, but he's having trouble finding buyers.
Even Warren Buffett himself isn't interested.
The Wall Street Journal reports the owner of the 86-year-old "squat, dilapidated office building" at 129 Cove Street wants to build a parking lot in its place but has agreed to wait a few months while the city looks for a buyer for what once housed the Berkshire Hathaway textile company.
Detroit has "huge potential" and might even be a place for Berkshire Hathaway to invest, Warren Buffett said Tuesday night, according to a Detroit Free Press report.
The legendary investor, at a news conference with other Wall Street heavyweights, called the city an underutilized resource, the paper said.
Warren Buffett is one of the most famous billionaires in the world. He also loves sharing his advice with kids as part of his Secret Millionaires Club. Here, he answers five questions, including what he thinks the biggest mistake is that parents make when teaching their kids about money and how he learned about money.
Do you think most parents do a good job teaching their kids about money?
Most parents know how important it is to teach kids about money and managing it properly. There was a study many years ago questioning how to predict business success later in life. The answer to the study was the age you started your first business impacted how successful you were later in life. Teaching kids sound financial habits at an early age gives all kids the opportunity to be successful when they are an adult.
Even as stocks continue to hit all-time highs, Warren Buffett said "they're in a zone of reasonableness."
In a live interview on "CBS This Morning" today, Buffett responded to activist investor Carl Icahn's comments, in which he said that as the Dow Jones Industrial Average touches 16,000 for the first time, stocks appear to be overpriced.

A separate amended filing for the second quarter, shows that most of the shares, 31.2 million of them, were added during the three months ending June 30.
The performance did not air nationally on the program, but a small portion of it was captured by Today.com associate editor and Orange Room digital producer Matt Murray and posted on Instagram.
Sean "Diddy" Combs wants some advice from Warren Buffett on how to become richer than the Omaha billionaire.
In an interview with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo for "Closing Bell" about his new "Revolt" music cable channel, Combs spoke about how he wants to be seen as competing with the top business people in the world, not just other African-American rappers, and said he could use some help.
When Berkshire loaned $3 billion to GE in a massive vote of confidence at the height of the 2008 credit crisis, the fund got five-year warrants giving it the right to buy almost 135 million shares of GE at $22.25 each.
Then in February of this year, GE quietly revealed an agreement to modify the deal by making it a "net share settlement."

Rather than have Berkshire spend $3 billion to buy the stock and then sell or hold onto it, GE agreed to give Berkshire stock that's worth as much as Berkshire would have realized by exercising the warrants and then immediately selling the shares.
It's a smaller stake, but Berkshire doesn't have to put out any cash for it.
Warren Buffett said Wednesday the threat to not raise the nation's debt limit "after you've already spent the money" is a "political weapon of mass destruction" comparable to poison gas and shouldn't be used by either party.
"I know it's been used in the past, but we used the atomic bomb back in 1945 but we decided we weren't going to do something like that again," he said hours before the government's midnight deadline to raise the debt limit or possibly default.
