Will Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway be the Same After Friday?

February 12, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ For years, most investors have dreamed of owning a piece of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, but the company’s uber-expensive share price is a little out of the common investor’s price range. However, Friday’s move involving Berkshire Hathaway could give people a chance to buy in at a more manageable price.

Berkshire Hathaway joins the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index Friday and is expected to make up more than 1% of the S&P 500 all by itself from day one.

Although the company’s Class A stock, currently at $115,000 a share, is still unattainable for average investors, Berkshire Hathaway’s Class B stock recently saw a 50-to-1 split and sits at more than $70 a share. The company’s entry into the S&P 500 makes those Class B shares more obtainable to fund managers and their portfolios.

On Thursday, Burlington Northern Corp. shareholders approved the sale of the railroad company to Berkshire Hathaway.
