Berkshire Hathaway is a massive conglomerate. With a market cap over $300 billion, the company directly owns dozens of businesses and holds huge stakes in many more, some of which include America's largest companies like Coca-Cola, IBM, Wells Fargo, and American Express. In his 50th letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, Buffett addresses this structure, which he says has a terrible reputation with investors, which it "richly deserves." But of course, it could probably be worse: Berkshire could be a private-equity firm. In his letter, Buffett writes that the bad reputation for conglomerates is mostly owing to the problems this structure had in the 1960s, when companies were acquiring any and all other businesses in an effort to boost per-share earnings. Eventually this scheme fell apart and the conglomerate structure — which often involved a holding company owning disparate businesses under one roof — became out of fashion.
