The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, Jeff Fischer, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the guys talk about several of Berkshire Hathaway's (NYS: BRK.A) major buys and sells this week, which were largely shifts away from consumer-oriented companies and into more industrials. This included a large purchase of shares in Deere & Company (NYS: DE) . Deere has been making steady dividend increases, but they also have a lot of expansion ahead of them in developing markets, which makes them an interesting buy.
