The board of directors at Berkshire Hathaway recently approved a share buyback of 9,200 of its Class A shares at a premium of 1.2 times the share price, even higher than the 1.1 times share price Warren Buffett had previously mentioned. While the market often views share buybacks positively, they're often executed notoriously poorly, losing investors money in the process. In this video, Motley Fool analysts Morgan Housel and Matt Koppenheffer discuss what they think of the buyback, and whether Berkshire is still a buy.

Warren Buffett's long track record of success has made him one of the best investors of all time. With Buffett at the helm, Berkshire Hathaway has grown book value per share at a compounded annual rate of 19.8% for nearly 50 years! Despite an incredible historical track record, investors have to understand the key issues to watch moving forward. To help investors, the Fool's resident Berkshire Hathaway expert, Joe Magyer, has created this premium research report on the company.
