Berkshire Hathaway is regarded as the mover of markets and one of the biggest funds in the world, and is managed by Warren Buffett. By means of a linear factor model, macroeconomic variables and market factors are regressed on the monthly performance of Berkshire Hathaway. The goal is to see whether Warren Buffet is really a value investor. A new set of factors are identified in an attempt to predict Berkshire Hathaway returns.Journal of Asset Management (2004) 5, 272–276; doi:10.1057/palgrave.jam.2240145
