    Buffett says owning IBM shares could prove a mistake: CNBC

    Reuters
    Warren Buffett, chairman and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, told CNBC on Monday the firm's ownership of IBM shares could prove a mistake and that he was buying more US stocks overall since the end of last year. "We've owned stocks that we've lost money in," said Buffett, the world's third-richest person. "If I'm wrong, you sell them out and take a big loss. We've done that on a few occasions with stocks and bonds over the years." Berkshire, which held an 8.59% stake in IBM as of Dec. 31, 2015, said in an annual shareholder letter on Saturday that it planned to keep that stake despite a $2.6 billion paper loss at the end of last year. Buffett told the cable television network he did not think he was wrong for owning IBM shares so far, but said it "could be" a mistake.

    GE's makeover: It's all in the corporate history
    GE's move to discard its financial and banking assets and concentrate on its industrial strengths is not a failure, but an attempt to see the future and move towards it. What it will do after selling off GE Capital is anyone's guess. But It's not alone in this - the story of capitalism is one of mutations, makeovers and corporate changelings.
