Berkshire Hathaway increases DaVita stake

Bobby Raines 11/11/2013

Berkshire Hathaway, already a beneficial owner of shares of DaVita Healthcare Partners Inc. ( DVA ) , bought 3,700,294 shares of that company's common stock between Nov. 6 and Nov. 8. At prices ranging from $53.25 to $55.98 per share, Berkshire paid a total of $204,046,688 while increasing its stake in the company by 11.8%.

IK-> The technicals for DVA ($57.10 up $0.80) are bearish with a neutral trend. Recent support has been around $53.53 and recent resistance has been around $57.45. Standard & Poor's has a three STARs (out of five) rating on the stock. Look at the Jan. 45/50 bull-put spread for a 20-cent credit. That's a 4.17% return and the stock has to fall 12.4% to cause a problem.  [InvestorsKeyhole, Various news and data services]
