Look for gains when Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway reports third quarter earnings after the bell rings on today's (Friday) Wall Street trading session.
Operating earnings should get a boost from profits generated by new Berkshire subsidiary Burlington Northern Santa Fe, just as they did during the second quarter .
The consensus forecast of the handful of analysts who follow Berkshire calls for operating profits of $1676.67 per Class A share.
That would be an increase of almost 27 percent from $1325 per share for last year's third quarter.
What people are looking for when they relocate changes from time to time. In the 90s, it was a city with low crime. Then, it was places with good schools.
“These days, you want a job and to make sure you can get a house there,” said Bert Sperling of BestPlaces.net,which helps people find the best places to live, work or retire.
Sperling crunched the numbers to find the 10 best cities to relocate to today. The list takes into consideration all kinds of data points from cost of living to crime rates, the number of colleges and how healthy the population is, as well as access to museums, shows, sporting and other events. Plus, one you might not think of – stability.
“We’re a big believer in the concept of stability, where there is modest, controllable growth,” Sperling explained. “Big booms lead to disruption, and ultimately big busts. Neither is good for livability.”
Here are Sperling’s Best Cities to Relocate to in America – Why they’re the best and who’s hiring there.
