Warren Buffett approves Berkshire Hathaway to implement new meaningful stock repurchases. Buffett sends a positive signal to the stock market with the Berkshire $1 billion stock buyback. This stock buyback program involves $1 billion Berkshire Hathaway share repurchases as of 2018Q3 and thus boosts the share price almost 5% in early-November 2018. This program can continue into the final weeks of the current calendar year.

From July 2018 to November 2018, Berkshire has been an active net buyer of $24 billion U.S. stocks. This decision doubles the overall dollar volume in the first half of the current year. Until July 2018, Berkshire Hathaway would repurchase shares only if the stock price fell below 120% of its book value (about $152 per share as of October 2018). A recent amendment allows Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to approve share repurchases if they believe that the stock price is lower than its intrinsic value. This amendment provides greater flexibility for new stock buyback programs and so results in meaningful share repurchases at Berkshire Hathaway. Warren Buffett points out that the intrinsic value of Berkshire Hathaway far exceeds its book value particularly in the property and casualty insurance businesses.
