Every year, Warren Buffett and his partner at Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B), Charlie Munger, invite shareholders, Wall Street Analysts, and the media to convene in Omaha, Nebraska for Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting.
The annual meeting is a county fair of sorts, featuring booths packed with products made by Berkshire Hathaway’s companies that are for sale and light-hearted games, including a challenge to beat Warren Buffett in a newspaper-tossing contest iin the past and a 5k road race sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway’s Brooks Running this year.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: Signet Jewelers Limited(SIG)
- [By Ben Levisohn]
Signet Jewelers (SIG) soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after reporting better-than-expected earnings and offering a staunch defense of the company’s culture.
Signet Jewelersgained 8.7% to $70.02 today, while the S&P 500 ticked up 0.1% to 2,364.87.
CFRA’s Efraim Levy still sees “risks” despite Signet’s defense of itself today:
We lower our 12-month target by $4 to $81, or 11X our FY 18 (Jan.) EPS of $7.35 (reduced $0.30). We apply a P/E below SIG’s 10-year forward average of 13.4X, to reflect challenges of negative same-store sales, offset by our favorable longer-term view of SIG’s market position. SIG today addressed recent headlines, but we still see risks, despite implied upside potential to our target. Posts adjusted Jan-Q EPS of $4.03 vs. $3.63, in line with Capital IQ consensus and January guidance. Same-store sales fell an in-line 4.5%, dragged down by the Sterling Jewelers division.
Signet Jewelers’ market capitalization rose to $4.9 billion today from $4.5 billion yesterday.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)
- [By Igor Novgorodtsev]
InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.
