2016 Annual Meeting
About 2016 Annual Meeting

(April 30, 2016) After buying Precision Castparts for $37 billion, Buffett analyzes why the high-tech equipment maker will be better off as part of Berkshire. He also predicts how Berkshire would be affected by Donald Trump in the White House, dismisses "due diligence," details why Berkshire won’t be taken over by activist investors, and claims victory in his 10-year bet against Wall Street.
