Year's Biggest Financial Event, LIVE
Apr 30, 2016

April 30, 2016 is an important event for investors the world over. On that day, Berkshire Hathaway will hold its annual general meeting (AGM). Its where Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger will discuss the Berkshire business, dole out nuggets of investment wisdom and also answer investor's questions.

Now, the AGM has always been held in Omaha, USA. So if you wanted to hear Buffett and Munger speak, you had to travel all the way there.

Indeed, it's the world's most anticipated shareholder meeting, with well over 35,000 shareholders from all over the world traveling to Omaha every year. And the last AGM saw a record participation of 40,000 investors.

But there's an important development this year. The AGM will be webcast live on Yahoo, at 8.30 pm India time.

To give you a flavour of how widely followed this AGM, here is an excerpt from Buffett's latest 2015 annual letter:

  • Charlie and I have finally decided to enter the 21st Century. Our annual meeting this year will be webcast worldwide in its entirety. To view the meeting, simply go to https://finance.yahoo.com/brklivestream Saturday, April 30th. The Yahoo! webcast will begin with a half hour of interviews with managers, directors and shareholders.

    This new arrangement will serve two purposes. First, it may level off or modestly decrease attendance at the meeting. Last year's record of more than 40,000 attendees strained our capacity. In addition to quickly filling the CenturyLink Center's main arena, we packed its overflow rooms and then spilled into two large meeting rooms at the adjoining Omaha Hilton. All major hotels were sold out notwithstanding Airbnb's stepped-up presence.

Thus, even if you don't travel all the way to Omaha, you can still hear Buffett and Munger speak live.

All thanks to the magic of technology and live streaming.

So, if you are a die-hard Buffett and Munger fan or even a firm believer in value investing, we are sure this is not an event you would want to miss.
