Just as we posted activity yesterday, news today that Berkshire Hathaway is acquiring Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Two more Global 5000 companies being combined.
This could bean investment on an undervalued entity or a bet on infrastructure spending or the fact that oil prices sky rocket and shipping comes off highways and onto the rails.
For marketers & sales folks, probably little change if you are calling on Burlington Northern. Berkshire tends to let acquisitions operate fairly autonomously.
