caption Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. source Getty Images / Matthew Peyton Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, loves to read. When he began his investing career, he would read 600 to 1,000 pages a day. According to Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholder letters and over two decades of interviews, these are the books that have guided Buffett’s financial wisdom. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. When Warren Buffett started his investing career, he would read 600, 750, or 1,000 pages of a book a day. Even now, he says he still spends about 80% of his day reading. “Look, my job is essentially just corralling more and more and more facts and information, and occasionally seeing whether that leads to some action,” he once said in an interview. “We don’t read other people’s opinions,” he said. “We want to get the facts, and then think.” To help you get into … [Read more...] about 19 books billionaire Warren Buffett thinks everyone should read
By Heather Haddon WSJ Vipal Monga WSJ Wed., May 15, 2019 Burger King parent Restaurant Brands International Inc. is under pressure from investors to show it has a plan to boost sales at its restaurant chains. The company, which is backed by 3G Capital and also owns Tim Hortons and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, boosted profit over several years by cutting costs and expanding into new markets. Shareholders benefited from a 20% compounded increase in the company’s share price over the past three years, to some 89.37 Canadian dollars at the close of trading on Tuesday in Toronto. Now, Burger King and Popeyes have lost some momentum. Burger King is closing underperforming restaurants as same-store sales growth has cooled. Popeyes has posted falling or flat same-store sales in the past three quarters. Tim Hortons, Canada’s most popular coffee chain and the biggest of those businesses by revenue, is also in trouble. The company fought with franchisees in … [Read more...] about Tim Hortons parent defends strategy as sales growth cools
By Jason Zweig WSJ Fri., May 3, 2019 Charlie Munger is a living reminder that to be a great investor, you must be a great learner. Listening to the vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., as my colleague Nicole Friedman and I did on a visit to his Los Angeles home in late April, you would never guess that one of the world’s greatest investors is 95 years old—or that he is nearly blind, or that he can barely walk without severe back pain. Mr. Munger has a superabundance of stamina, curiosity and concentration that many people a third his age would envy. Nicole and I—along with Mr. Munger’s friend Peter Kaufman, chief executive of Glenair Inc., an aerospace-parts manufacturer in Glendale, Calif.—were there to talk with him about his obsession with designing buildings for schools and other nonprofits. But Mr. Munger was there to talk about anything on his mind, which is just about everything. His favorite activity, he says, is figuring out … [Read more...] about Dinner with Charlie: the world according to Mr. Munger
By Nicole Friedman WSJ Erik Holm WSJ Thu., May 2, 2019 Warren Buffett has always known how to make a buck. As the annual meeting for his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has grown in popularity over the years, Mr. Buffett and his staff have gone to greater and greater lengths to make sure attendees have plenty to spend their money on. For more than a decade, the meeting has been held at a massive arena in downtown Omaha, Neb., big enough to accommodate the tens of thousands who now make the pilgrimage to the event, often called “Woodstock for Capitalists.” The arena is adjoined by a 194,300-square-foot exhibit hall, and on Berkshire weekend, it is filled with products from dozens of Berkshire-owned companies, offering everything from candy and soda to mobile homes and chartered plane flights. Not all of Berkshire’s 60-odd subsidiaries participate, but a look at the floor of the exhibit hall offers a glimpse at just how vast Mr. Buffett’s empire has … [Read more...] about Warren Buffett’s empire, in 194,300 square feet
