Berkshire Hathaway continues to be one of the best vehicles for retirement

The Palm Beach Examiner

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) has been a godsend for investors over many decades. The company does not throw off a dividend, and the only tax implications in owning the stock are when you sell. The annual per share market value of BRK has been 20 percent since 1965, while the S&P 500 has only returned just over 10 percent per year. It is like a mutual fund, as it is a conglomerate and operates without the fees or tax implications of a mutual fund.
