One share of Berkshire Hathaway stock hit $200,000 for the first time today!
Berkshire Hathaway Class A stock is the most expensive stock in the U.S. This is what happens to a company that continues to increase earnings over time and never splits its stock. Owner, Founder, and CEO, Warren Buffett does not believe in stock splits.
A little history ala Yahoo Finance:
– The stock it $1000 in 1983
– $10,000 in 1992
– $100,000 in 2006
Even Warren got hit during the Great Recession of 2008-09 when the stock was cut in half from its high of $149,000 in 2007 to about $72,000 in 2009. Well, it’s back!
