OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Investor Warren Buffett's annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders will be released on March 1.
Buffett prefers to release his letter, which accompanies Berkshire's annual report, on a Saturday. But this year regulatory deadlines will force the billionaire to release the report on a Friday afternoon for the first time since 2008.
Buffett's shareholder letter is one of the most-quoted and best-read business documents because of his humor and skill at explaining complicated subjects. Buffett, who is Berkshire's chairman and chief executive, also addresses other topics besides the company's financial results.
And investors are always looking for clues about what Buffett might buy next, and who will lead the Omaha-based conglomerate he built after the 82-year-old is no longer around.
