I am not quite sure how to calculate how much an additional 27.7M shares (since 2012) would increase BRK's portion of WMTs earnings to get an indicator of why the purcases were made (undervaluation or increasing share of earnings), since the above statment only applies to the top four stock holdings.


I keep a spreadsheet with this info. I just use data from Yahoo so it could be off.

As of year end 2014.

Berkshire shares.......1,642,909
WMT shares owned.......67,707,909
WMT ttm earnings.......5.05
WMT dividend...........1.96
Berkshire dividend per A share.....$80.78
Berkshire dividend per B share.....$ .05
Berkshire *UE per A share.........$127
Berkshire UE per B Share..........$ .08

*Undistributed earnings

Wells Fargo is the largest contributor (I think)

Dividend per A $412.00
UE per A $795.00
