Warren Buffett’s Snowflake, Barrick Gold bets signal new strategy

  • Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has made surprise bets on Barrick Gold and Snowflake in recent months, clashing with the investor’s past warnings about gold, tech stocks, and IPOs.
  • Berkshire’s bosses may be pursuing smaller, more frequent investments and cashing in on corporate actions, Brian Gongol, a longtime Berkshire shareholder, told Business Insider.
  • “I wouldn’t be surprised if Buffett, Weschler, Combs, and Ajit Jain all got on the phone and had a talk where they decided to ‘think small’ with some fraction of the company’s cash pile,” Gongol said.
  • Buffett and his team also signaled Berkshire was “the best big investment they could find” when they spent $5.1 billion buying back stock in May and June, Gongol said.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway stunned investors when it revealed a $560 million stake in Barrick Gold in August, and shocked them again with its $735 million bet on Snowflake when it went public in September.

After all, the billionaire investor has blasted gold as an inferior asset and repeatedly warned against backing aggressively valued, lossmaking technology companies, and IPOs.

Yet Barrick and Snowflake aren’t necessarily betrayals of Buffett’s principles, according to Brian Gongol, a longtime Berkshire shareholder and close follower of the company.

“At first glance, the Snowflake investment really does look out of character — even for Weschler and Combs,” Gongol told Business Insider, referring to Buffett’s two portfolio managers, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs.

However, he pointed to Buffett’s description of “work-outs” — investing opportunities driven by corporate actions such as mergers, spinoffs, and reorganizations — in his 1962 letter to investors in his partnership.

  •  Silver Lake is launching a 25-year investment strategy, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.
  • The private-equity giant is becoming even more like Warren Buffett with its longer investing timeframe.
  • Silver Lake has invested billions of dollars in Twitter, Airbnb, Expedia, and other businesses during the pandemic, similar to how Buffett handed cash to the likes of Goldman Sachs and General Electric during the 2008 financial crisis.
  • The firm has also emulated Buffett by lending money at lofty interest rates and securing equity warrants.

Silver Lake pulled from Warren Buffett’s playbook when it injected cash into ailing companies during the coronavirus crash this year. The private-equity giant is emulating the famed investor once again with the launch of a 25-year investment strategy.

Abu Dhabi’s sovereign-wealth fund, Mubadala, is acquiring a sub-5% stake in Silver Lake and contributing $2 billion to the new fund, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Silver Lake, which manages more than $60 billion in total assets, has a quarter of a century to employ Mubadala’s cash and realize any gains — more than double the usual 10-year timeframe for private-equity funds, The Journal said.

Buffett, the billionaire CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has championed long-term investing for decades and held stocks such as Coca-Cola for more than 30 years. “Our favorite holding period is forever,” Buffett wrote in his 1988 shareholder letter.

Silver Lake hasn’t just adopted a Buffett-esque investment horizon, it has also taken up his mantle
