Berkshire Hathaway shareholders gathered in Omaha, Nebraska for the company's annual meeting and as usual came away with their money's worth.
Buffett loyalists need not worry about Chairman Warren Buffett retiring in a hurry. He once again reminded them that "I love my job". He did, however, say that he might hire up to four CIOs to replace him when he does step down. (He is actively seeking a successor -- if that is possible?)
Buffett also said the company would consider a mega-acquisition if it made sense.
In the past year, Buffett slipped to third on the world's richest list, according to Forbes. but he achieved distinction as a philanthropist during that time. Last fall, he pledge most of his fortune to charity.
Shortly after that pledge in the form of Berkshire Hathaway stock -- the bulk of it earmarked for the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation -- Buffett sat down with with CNBC's Liz Claman for a wide-ranging, exclusive interview.
