Warren Buffett's Annual Letter Is Coming This Weekend: What To Expect
Food company Kraft Heinz Co (NASDAQ:KHC), one of Berkshire's big holdings, lost more than 20 percent Friday morning, but this will likely take a backseat to any hints of what Berkshire plans to do with its $116 billion pile of cash, CNBC reported.
Expectations remain the same as they have in recent years — that the company hasn't identified any compelling large-scale purchases.
Buffett's last major deal took place in 2016, when Berkshire spent $32 billion to acquire Precision Castparts. The following year, the "Oracle of Omaha" said in his annual letter that prices for "decent, but far from spectacular" businesses had moved to all-time highs.
Investors will also be looking out for commentary related to share buybacks. Berkshire approved a new stock buyback policy last year, and it is not yet clear if it was active in the fourth quarter.
Finally, the letter may include commentary on one of Main Street's hot topics, according to CNBC: health care.
