NEW YORK: The slide in US stock prices punished Berkshire Hathaway Inc’s bottom line in the second quarter as the company run by billionaire Warren Buffett posted a US$43.8bil (RM195bil) loss.

Berkshire nevertheless generated nearly US$9.3bil (RM41.4bil) of profit from its operating businesses, as improvement from reinsurance and the BNSF railroad offset a loss at the Geico car insurer, where car parts shortages and higher vehicle prices boosted losses from accidents.

Rising interest rates and dividend payouts helped Berkshire’s insurance units generate more money from investments, while the strengthening US dollar boosted profit from the company’s European and Japanese debt investments.

Berkshire also slowed purchases of its stocks, including its own, though it ended June with US$105.4bil (RM469.4bil) of cash and equivalents it could still deploy.

“It shows the fickle nature of markets,” said Tom Russo, a partner at Gardner, Russo & Quinn in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, who invests more than US$8bil (RM35.6bil), of which 17% is in Berkshire. “It’s business as usual at Berkshire Hathaway.”

Investors closely watch Berkshire because of Buffett’s reputation, and because results from the Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate’s dozens of operating units often mirror broader economic trends.

Berkshire owns dozens of businesses, including steady earners such as its namesake energy company, several insurers and industrial companies, and familiar consumer brands such as Dairy Queen, Duracell, Fruit of the Loom and See’s Candies.

In its quarterly report, Berkshire said “significant disruptions of supply chains and higher costs have persisted” as new Covid-19 variants emerge and because of geopolitical conflicts including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

But it said direct losses to the company have not been material, despite the impact of higher costs for materials, shipping and labour.

Net results suffered from Berkshire’s US$53bil (RM236bil) of losses from investments and derivatives.

Stocks of three major holdings – Apple Inc, Bank of America Corp and American Express Co – each fell more than 21%, compared with a 16% decline in the Standard & Poor’s 500.

Accounting rules require Berkshire to report the losses with its results even if it buys and sells nothing.

Buffett urges investors to ignore the fluctuations, and Berkshire will make money if stocks rise over time.

In 2020, for example, Berkshire lost nearly US$50bil (RM222.7bil) in the first quarter as the pandemic took hold, but made US$42.5bil (RM189.3bil) for the full year.

      最后,本港不时有大树倒塌的原因是配合的政策不足。根据资料A,现时政府未有针对初期受真菌感染或被白蚁侵蚀树木的补救指引,建议尽快制订。事实上,本港的保育树木者,多年来均倡议实施树木法。法例能规管合资格者评估树木,以防意外倒下。可惜,法案已在香港讨论多年,但始终未能落实。个中原因包括香港缺乏合资格的树艺师、欠缺完整的评估准则、外判方式以效率而非质素为本等。结果,法案搁置,在没有制度的监测下,香港维护树木的情况就像进入了恶性循环,导致不时有大树倒塌。故此,没有政策支援是本港不时有树木倒塌的原因之一。无聊来看看。
