What’s the Best Nickname for Warren Buffett?

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Visitor's Guide Cover 2017This year’s annual meeting theme is a definite nod to one of Warren Buffett’s nicknames. He’s often referred to as the “Wizard of Omaha,” and this theme definitely has a yellow brick road, there’s-no-place-like-home feel going to it.

Omaha’s Buffett-focused reporter, The Omaha World-Herald’s Steve Jordon, is apparently not a fan of that nickname. In his column last week, he noted his preference of a nickname.
“Personally, I prefer “Oracle,” but that’s tougher to show in a drawing”. – Steve Jordon, Omaha World-Herald reporter
So what do you think? Do you have a nickname you use for our esteemed Chairman? Take our poll to vote on your favorite, or submit your suggestion for a nickname for Mr. Buffett!


The Wienermobile is Coming to #BRK2016!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Get excited, hot dog fans.

There’s going to be a Wienermobile at this year’s Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Weekend!

Oscar Meyer WienermobileHow great is that!?!

The Omaha World Herald’s Steve Jordon mentioned it in his weekly Warren Watch wrap-up, which is always a key place for news about Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

He notes:
Buffett’s favorite meal these days is an Oscar Mayer hot dog (by Kraft) with Heinz ketchup or mustard and a Coke.
Not sure we’ll be serving hot dogs at our Friday cocktail party or Sunday shareholder brunch at Borsheims. But you can believe we’ll have lots of Coke products. And I’m certain you can get your fill of hot dogs down at the CenturyLink Center on Saturday!

Buffett’s Berkshire (Almost) Autobiography To Sell for $20

Monday, April 13th, 2015

It’s not an official autobiography, but the Omaha World Herald’s Steve Jordon says it’s as close as we’ll probably get to one. Warren Buffett is releasing a Berkshire Hathaway 50th anniversary book during Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend and it sounds like a thing of beauty.

The book was originally expected to be inexpensive, with mainly reprints of Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders and other documents. But the project grew and it is now a 120-page hardcover book, says Jordon in his Sunday Omaha World Herald Warren Watch column. He says the book will sell for $20 and only at the CenturyLink Center during the Friday and Saturday shopping periods. And it will have photos with captions written by Buffett.

Read all about it in Jordon’s Warren Watch column.

We can’t wait to get our hands on the book and add it to our collection of Berkshire Hathaway-related reading material!
