In a stunning last-second spike, shares of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway closed today (Friday) at $147,000 each.
That's an increase of $18,990 a share, or 14.83 percent, the biggest one-day move ever for Berkshire.
It was just late July that Berkshire was down 25 percent from its all-time high set last December.
It is now just 1.5 percent below that closing high of $149,200 and up 31.5 percent above the near-term July 39 low of $111,750.
The stock is up 3.8 percent on the year, compared to the S&P's 14.5 percent YTD decline.
Just this morning, we had a post reporting that Buffett was beating the market for the year, after underperforming the S&P for several months. Now, it's not even close.
The jump to $147 thousand came in the last few trades of the session. Most of the day, the stock was trading between $130,000 and $135,000. The spike appears to be related to a big disparity between buy and sell orders at the close.
