The travails and triumphs of the market visited two of its mavens this week, when a PR fiasco sunk Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) stock United Airlines and an unlikely burst occurred in one of Prem Watsa (Trades, Portfolio)’s most stubborn stocks, BlackBerry.
Shares of United Continental Holdings dropped 4.29% on Monday and Tuesday, shaving $88.9 million off of Buffett’s holding as it sunk from $2.07 billion in value to $1.98 billion. The drop came not from operational trouble but from investors turned off by the airline’s treatment of passenger aboard a flight and its subsequent handling of the blowback.
