Buffett Says Seabreeze’s Kass To Be Bear at Berkshire Meeting

Douglas Kass, founder of Seabreeze Partners Management Inc., answered Warren Buffett’s call for someone who’s bearish on Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A) to ask questions at the firm’s annual meeting.

Buffett selected Kass, the billionaire said in an interview with CNBC today, after he wrote in his annual letter March 1 that he was looking for an investment professional who’s negative on the stock, or betting on its decline, to ask questions at the May 4 meeting for his Omaha, Nebraska-based company.
