6 Things Missing From Warren Buffett’s Annual Letter

Kevin Clayton. Clayton Homes. Manufactured housing.

 

Geico Insurance is mentioned in Buffett’s latest annual letter.  The glories of float, compound interest, and reasons for buying that gecko symbol insurance brand is part of what is promoted in Warren Buffett’s annual cover letter to Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) shareholders.

But the 6 words just below the featured image, above? They are nowhere to be found in that same cover letter.

What is and isn’t shown by Buffett ought to matter to industry pros and investors. Never forget, those BRK shareholders are Buffett’s and Charlie Munger’s partners.  He is speaking to them, and to others he hopes to attract to his fold. They are also deflecting from critics, via that same letter.

We’ll look more at potentially why those 6 things that influence affordable housing and HUD Code manufactured homes aren’t mentioned, plus the data from the report itself, another time soon.

But for now, with no further adieu, let’s dive into the headlines of various reports and market reviews from the week that was from 2.17.2019 to 2.24.2019.
