Berkshire Hathaway amends share repurchase program

The Board of Directors of Berkshire Hathaway has authorized an amendment to Berkshire's share repurchase program. The earlier share repurchase program provided that the price paid for repurchases would not exceed a 20% premium over the then-current book value of such shares. Under the amendment adopted by the Board of Directors, share repurchases can be made at any time that both Warren Buffett, Berkshire's Chairman and CEO, and Charlie Munger, a Berkshire Vice Chairman, believe that the repurchase price is below Berkshire's intrinsic value, conservatively determined. The current policy whereby share repurchases will not be made if they would reduce the value of Berkshire's consolidated cash, cash equivalents and U.S. Treasury Bills holdings below $20B will continue. Berkshire will not initiate any share repurchases under the amended program until it publicly releases its second quarter earnings, currently scheduled after the close of the markets on Friday, August 3, 2018.

Amazon/JPMorgan/Berkshire venture still negative for drug supply chain, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes notes that Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) and JPMorgan (JPM) announced the appointment of Atul Gawande as the CEO of their new healthcare joint venture, effective July 9th. The analyst sees this appointment as indicating an emphasis on enablement of change in the system, along with thought and policy leadership, and believes the appointment of an operating oriented President or COO could refine the outlook for scope. Wilkes continues to see this venture as negative for drug supply chain and self-insured employer oriented MCOs.

PG&E would be 'contiguous fit' in Berkshire power portfolio, says Gordon Haskett
Gordon Haskett analyst Don Bilson noted that Warren Buffett bought Portland-based PacifiCorp in 2005 and then bought a Nevada utility in 2013, adding that PG&E (PCG) would be a "contiguous fit" in Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A) portfolio. PG&E's current market cap of $20B is "hardly daunting" for Berkshire, added Bilson, who also noted that recent media reports indicate that Elliott Management, which butted heads with Buffett last year when Berkshire was trying to buy a Texas utility, is also involved with a stake in PG&E.

Bernstein offers list of possible CEOs for Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan venture
After Berkshire' (BRK.A) Warren Buffett and JPMorgan's (JPM) Jamie Dimon announced on CNBC that they have selected a CEO for their healthcare joint venture with Amazon (AMZN) and added that they would announce the name in about two weeks, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes noted that Geisinger CEO David Feinberg denied accepting the position and said he is committed to Geisinger. The ultimate choice of the CEO will inform on the intended scope of the NewCo and how the companies will prioritize strategic direction and needed capabilities, said Wilkes, who offered a list of potential CEO candidates that includes Gary Loveman, Rick Jelinek, Matt Manders, Patrick Conway, Amir Rubin, Owen Tripp, Chris Grant, Marc Harrison, Andy Slavitt, Todd Park and Peter Orszag.

USG price target raised to $44 from $34 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Keith Hughes raised his price target on USG (USG) to $44, saying he expects Knauf to raise its offer price for the company above the latest $42 bid while also anticipating the deal to close. Hughes adds that the support for the deal from Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) "greatly increases the odds" that the deal is finalized. Hughes keeps his Hold rating on USG.

Efforts to strengthen in-store healthcare offering positive for Walmart, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma notes that the push to provide consumer-driven and lower-cost healthcare continues its push into retail as The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart (WMT) is in discussions to acquire or develop a closer partnership Humana (HUM). This is on the heels of Amazon's (AMZN) recent JV with Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) and JPMorgan (JPM) to provide healthcare for employees, he adds. The analyst views any efforts to strengthen the in-store healthcare offering as a positive for Walmart's stock.
