As many of you already know, The Morningstar Ultimate Stock-Pickers Team regularly reviews the investment choices of managers we admire in light of the independent research done by our own equity analysts. Stock picks of managers we like will often overlap with the views of our equity research department, providing us with investment ideas we can pursue further.

Like many of the analysts here at Morningstar, we have a high regard for  Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B), regularly sifting through the holdings, purchases and sales of the iconic managers--Warren Buffett, Charles Munger, and Lou Simpson--behind the investment choices at the firm. Buffett has been involved in Berkshire's investment portfolio for much of the last forty years, while Munger has been contributing to investment decisions at the firm for nearly as long. Simpson, who has announced he is retiring at the end of the year, has managed Geico's investment portfolio for decades. This type of longevity is rare among asset managers.
