3 Reasons (Other Than Warren Buffett) to Buy Berkshire Stock

USA International Trade Administration

Shares in Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (symbols BRK.A and BRK.B) enjoyed a market-beating 2016. The lower-priced and more actively traded Class B shares surged 23.4% last year, compared with a 9.5% gain for Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index. Some who follow the company think investors can look forward to more of the same this year.

"We expect the outperformance to continue in 2017 as the outlook for [Berkshire's] major segments improves and upside remains from corporate tax reform and infrastructure spending," wrote UBS analyst Brian Meredith in a recent research note.

Buffett’s decades-long track record of success is reason enough to invest in Berkshire, but the 86-year-old won't be around forever.

So here are three good reasons other than Buffett to invest in Berkshire Hathaway's stock right now.
