I think that at least while he's around, an owner of Berkshire will get a return close to how the business performs. Multiple expansion simply isn't on the cards.

I agree and said much the same thing in an earlier post. Mr. Market hates conglomerates, even the most successful one in history. Most others are being pressured to spin-off unrelated or low-growth businesses.

Only a very large acquisition of a growth business will excite Mr. Market into revaluing BRK. Or maybe a significant share buyback.
