I recently published a screen showing how one can make money using data from Wall Street analysts and was intrigued to see Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) on the list of passing stocks. That caught me by surprise, not because there’s anything wrong with BRK.B but because it’s not the sort of stock I typically associate with any aspect of the sell side. Motivated by curiosity, I decided to take a fresh look at Berkshire’s fundamentals in a way I hadn’t since the late 1990s, when I covered the company at Value Line.
