    Warren Buffett tells CNBC in a live interview on Squawk Box this morning that he has "a lot of doubts" about Kraft's planned purchase of Cadbury and that he "feels poorer" in the wake of the deal.  The deal does not need to be approved by shareholders, but "If I had a chance to vote on this, I'd vote no."  But he rejected Joe Kernen's suggestion that he show his displeasure by selling Berkshire's stake of over 9 percent in Kraft.  That, he says, would be too expensive because Kraft's stock is still "undervalued."

    Stock index futures were lower Wednesday, indicating a pullback following the biggest gains for stocks since Jan. 4.

  • After years of opposing any split for Berkshire Hathaway's famously high-priced stock, shareholders meet tomorrow in Omaha to approve a 50-for-1 split for its Class B shares.  The move is being justified as a way to make it easier for BNSF shareholders to receive tax-free stock instead of cash when the railroad is acquired by Berkshire.  But some believe Buffett wouldn't mind if the split also clears the way for Berkshire's induction into the prestigious S&P 500 stock index.

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway won't be able to make good on its threat to vote against Kraft's agreement to buy Cadbury, even though Kraft had to raise its bid again to nearly $19 billion to close the deal.   Due to the way it is structured, Kraft shareholders won't need to approve the issuance of new shares.  Buffett, however, may have something to say about the matter when he's interviewed live tomorrow morning on CNBC's Squawk Box.

    Warren Buffett has a decision to make, now that Kraft is close to a friendly deal to acquire Cadbury for a sweetened bid of $19 billion, including a larger cash portion.  Berkshire, Kraft's largest shareholder, had signaled it was against a higher bid, but also warned Kraft against using too much of its "undervalued" stock for a purchase.
