Omaha, NE - Berkshire Hathaway shareholders left Omaha Sunday knowing a bit more about Warren Buffett’s health.
Buffett told shareholders he's doing just fine after his recent prostate cancer diagnosis.
Sunday, the Oracle of Omaha sold jewelry, had some laughs, and closed off the annual Berkshire hatchway meeting.
Always the salesman Warren Buffett wasted no time peddling product at Borsheims.
Brushing off worries about his health, and turning to what warren buffet does best closing the deal.
"Warren is just an honest man you just don't see that too much anymore,” said one shareholder.
Buffett reassured shareholders at the big Berkshire Hathaway meeting he's feeling just fine.
"I’ve had much worse than this,” said Buffett. “10 years ago I had a portion of my colon removed; I went into the hospital with a colon and came out with a semi colon so that's way worse than this.”
Buffett closed out the annual event, with what looked more like a rock concert, than an investors meeting.
"It's just great and you meet so many people from all over the country all over the world for that matter,” said Osceola resident Duane Jones.
One of those people was Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
He preferred a quick game of bridge on the second story of Borsheims, and a soft drink, to jewelry sales.
Two of the world’s richest people, thousands of anxious investors looking for a financial vision,
the economy, taxes, and the bottom line.
Wrapping up another Berkshire weekend in Omaha.
Warren Buffett plans to undergo radiation treatment in July, and says it won't slow him down one bit.
He has chosen someone to succeed him as CEO, along with two back up candidates, but won't mention names.
