A Great Haven for Stormy Markets

(New York)

Are you looking for places to ride out the current storm in markets? It is a tough time to be doing so, as even traditional bastions of safety-utilities, healthcare, and consumer staples-have been deeply wounded lately. Here is one you probably haven't thought of-Berkshire Hathaway's stock. The captain of the Berkshire ship, Warren Buffett has long been a master of profiting in down markets, and with the company's $100 bn in cash, the combination looks appealing. One CIO put it this way, saying "As a long-term Berkshire holder, this is the kind of environment that you hope for given all the cash … I love the risk-reward, embedded safety, and diversity of the earnings flows".

FINSUM : Berkshire is not the kind of stock that is going to get hammered in down markets, and it would seem to have a lot of upside in such environments. Seems like a potentially good buy.
