One of the benefits of attending the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders' meeting is learning from the great value investors and Buffettologists who also make the yearly trek to Omaha.

Today, Professor Cunningham explains how Berkshire's enormous cash position led to purchases of regulated companies with a built-in moat.
