Shares of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) hit a new all-time high on Monday in the wake of last weekend’s annual meeting.  Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett talked stocks, bonds and succession.
In an interview with CNBC, Buffett called stocks "reasonably priced" and said bonds were a "terrible" investment right now. In our lead story on Monday's Investor Beat,  Motley Fool analysts Andy Cross and Jason Moser talk about Buffett's latest musings.

  • Shares of 3D (DDD) Systems rose on Monday after the company was added to the S&P MidCap 400 Index. 
  • Tysons Foods (TSN) fell as consumers shifted from pricier beef to cheaper chicken. 
  • Monster Beverage (MNST) lost some of its fizz after the company was sued by the city of San Francisco.   
And we close Monday's installment with two stocks to watch. Jason has Disney (DIS) on his mind, while Andy is watching Snyder’s-Lance (LNCE)

All the naysayers sound jealous to me. Buffet is very good to charities, has helped others earn money and lives a relatively simple life style.

I think Buffet is a decent person...But he certainly is mellowing the last few years, good for him.

lovely.. transporting coal across the country with his newly purchased railroad, polluting his way to big profits. No one can get in his way. Money talks big time. Buying off anyone who can keep that coal rolling. the coal dust coming off the tons of the thousands of railroad cars loaded to the top, riding through populated areas. people getting sick, breathing it into their lungs; Dust into the waterways...and onward.

A man so admired for his power, his arrogance, and his self-righteousness, that make him iconic in the amoral world of high finance. When Buffett speaks from his thrown wall street grovels. Have mercy!

LOL... people put their faith trust and pixie dust into the hands of a guy who should be building ships in bottles at the senior center. We STINK with octogenarians too immature to stop playing with money and make-believing they have all their faculties and mental sharpness. Worse yet are those who are so greedy that they make-believe he's the Energizer bunny and will just keep going. What for? This guy is a psychopath.
