Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Closes Above the $150,000 Mark

Don't look now, but Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Class A shares have now eclipsed the $150,000 per share mark.  Last Friday, BRK/A closed above $150,000 for the first time ever, surpassing the stock's prior closing high of $149,200 reached on December 10th, 2007.  One share of BRK/A gained another $2,357 today to put it at $152,498 as of the close.

The B shares also made history today by closing above the $100 level for the first time ever.  

For those wondering, Berkshire has handily outperformed the broad market over the last twenty years, gaining 1,173% versus the S&P 500's gain of 253%.  

It's good to be Warren.
