Warren Buffett says he won't sell IBM shares: report

close

New York:

Berkshire Hathaway chairman and chief executive Warren Buffett said that he would not sell shares of IBM Corp., even as the company missed earnings expectations last month.

"I won't be a seller of IBM," Buffett told a TV channel ahead of Berkshire's annual shareholder meeting, which will begin May 4 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Buffett also said he did not buy more shares of IBM following the company's disappointing earnings results, which led to an 8 per cent drop in the company's shares a day later.

Buffett added that he may buy more shares in IBM "from time to time", but that he neither bought nor sold shares after the company's quarterly earnings miss. He said that he "may have added a little bit" to Berkshire's stake in the company in the first quarter.

Buffett also told the news channel that he is "100 per cent" in favor of JPMorgan Chase chairman and chief executive Jamie Dimon maintaining both roles at the bank. Dimon faces a shareholder vote this month at JPMorgan's annual meeting that could push the board to strip him of his chairman's role.
