Warren Buffett's Empire Nears Trillion-dollar Club As Class A Shares Hit Above $600,000

This week, $Berkshire Hathaway-A (BRK.A.US)$ achieved a historic milestone as its Class A shares closed above $600,000 for the first time.

本周, $伯克希尔-A (BRK.A.US)$ 其A类股票首次收于60万美元以上,实现了历史性的里程碑。

The surge in share price brings Warren Buffett's iconic conglomerate closer to the coveted $1 trillion market valuation, a feat not yet achieved by any U.S. company outside the technology sector.


Currently positioned as the seventh-largest company in the U.S. with a market capitalization of approximately $880 billion, Berkshire Hathaway is now only $120 billion shy of reaching the trillion-dollar mark.


This development sets the stage for an intriguing race against $Eli Lilly and Co (LLY.US)$, which trails with a valuation of $749 billion.

这一事态发展为一场有趣的竞争奠定了基础 $礼来 (LLY.US)$,其估值为7,490亿美元。

Since Buffett took the helm of Berkshire Hathaway in 1965, the company's stock has seen an astronomical rise of 3,215,489%, from about $19 per share to $610,962, as reported by Business Insider.


This growth trajectory underscores Buffett's strategic vision and reluctance to split the company's Class A shares, aiming instead to attract long-term, buy-and-hold investors.


In 1996, Berkshire Hathaway introduced Class B shares to provide a more accessible investment option without compromising the investment quality sought by Buffett.


Despite a stock split in 2010, the Class A shares have continued to climb, reaching new heights and solidifying Berkshire Hathaway's position as a powerhouse in the global financial landscape. The conglomerate's journey to this milestone has been marked by significant acquisitions, including a nearly 30% stake in $Occidental Petroleum (OXY.US)$ and the purchase of insurance giant Alleghany for $11.6 billion.

尽管在2010年进行了股票拆分,但A类股票仍在继续攀升,达到了新的高度,巩固了伯克希尔·哈撒韦公司作为全球金融格局强国的地位。该集团实现这一里程碑的过程以重大收购为标志,其中包括近30%的股份 $西方石油 (OXY.US)$ 以及以116亿美元的价格收购保险巨头阿勒格尼。
