In a note released on Friday, KBW’s Meyer Shields and Christopher Campbell try to estimate the damage that the Brexit selloff has done to the book value of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A): Reuters Britain voted to exit the European Union driving markets significantly lower, with the Nikkei (-7.9%), DAX (-7.2%), CAC (-8.7%), FTSE 100 (-4.2%), and S&P 500 Futures (currently down 3.5%) all down. Beyond the impact on its equity portfolio, we expect to see a negative book value impact of $798 million ($169/share) if current conditions persist..

Holding stocks for the long run has obvious appeal. The historical record shows that if you simply ignore the short-term noise and focus on the next 10 or 20 years, you’ll do fine, and perhaps substantially better than fine. The big risk is that you chicken out midway through the next period of subpar performance. Embracing the long run looks easy on paper, when we have the benefit of seeing the outcome for a specific period in the past.
