Berkshire Hathaway Breaks $150,000

On Friday, for the first time ever, shares of Berkshire Hathaway ($BRKA) closed over $150,000. In December 2007, the stock popped its head above $150K a few times, but was never able to hang on by the close. Then came bad times. Not that long ago, September 2011 to be precise, BRKA dropped below $100,000.

Since 1998, Berkshire has lost a lot of its historical super mojo. Still, it’s been a good performer. Berkshire first closed at $15,000 on May 27, 1993 — almost 20 years ago. The stock first broke $1,500 only eight years before that on March 19, 1985.
