Not only is Berkshire selling at a large discount to our estimate of its intrinsic value, but we expect it to grow this value 8% to 10% annually over the long term.

In addition, if the current discount narrows (i.e., BRK trades up from 1.26x to 1.50x book value), shares could be worth about $360 in five years, equivalent to a compound annual return of 13%.

Buffett interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uddpWu5-1Uk

Thanks for posting. Buffett looking sharp!  Only thing noticeable is the heavy breathing which is somewhat familiar to me with my 90 year old mother. I wonder why Yahoo doesn’t try to edit that out.

Interesting comment about being early in deploying cash during 2008-09. “Ran out of powder at the depth of the crisis”. $122B and counting = Lesson learned, ha?

Yes, interesting "out of powder"-comment related to the situation in the GFC. Cash & cash equivalents at USD 25.334 B at YE 2008. Thank you for sharing to Liberty.

That interview is from earlier this year. Not new.
