Ronan’s Live Pre-Stream to the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting (Warren Buffett’s Company)

Warren Buffett is likely the world’s most famous living investor. Each year, his company (Berkshire) holds a meeting with over 40,000 people where he takes questions for about six hours. This year, that meeting takes place at 4 pm Boston time (9 pm Irish time) on Saturday May 2nd and will all be compressed into a one hour meeting by video.

Right before the meeting, I’ll be doing a 30 min pre-stream – starting at 3.30 pm Boston time and 8.30 pm Irish time – to cover:

A little background on how Berkshire/Buffett makes money, including a very rough tour of the company’s cash flow and balance sheet.

Some comments/reaction to Berkshire’s results from the first quarter of 2020 (which likely reveal what Buffett did (or didn’t do) with his money during the market crash due to COVID). Note that these will only be realised early morning on May 2nd.

A preview of a few questions that Buffett is likely to get asked during the 45 min Q&A session.

Has your business got PPE for when the economy reopens?

It’s a thought that dawned on me when chatting with my mother today. I feel that people are so focused on figuring out when the economy will reopen that we haven’t started to plan yet for what will happen when things do reopen. Are we planning for what will be needed to go about daily life and work?

I’m not saying we should reopen soon. I’m just thinking that once some dates are announced around reopening, there might be another big rush to get masks, sanitizer etc.

I’m not sure how this will play out, but it’s something I’m thinking about as I plan for continued production of hand sanitizer. Will all businesses initially recommend wearing masks? Will there be guidance around hand washing or sanitizing? It seems like there is a good chance the answer is yes.
