But with a well-known, heavily followed stock like BRK-B, what are the odds that it is ever going to be seriously undervalued?

Berkshire has been "seriously" undervalued twice in the past decade. It has been "undervalued" for a decent part of the decade: between 2004-2006.5 it didn't move at all, even though the company profits kept rising.

Like any other stock, it has times of over-performance and under-performance. The questions on the Berkshire board are legion: "Do you think BRK is undervalued today?" Had you bought it in early 2009 you would have an almost 80% gain already. Had you bought it in late 2007 you would be sitting on a loss.
