Berkshire Seen Failing Buffett 5-Year Test for First Time

Warren Buffett probably missed his target for the first time in 44 years.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc., his $292 billion company, is poised to report that it failed to increase net worth more rapidly than the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index during the past five years, according to analyst estimates. It would be the first time the billionaire investor fell short of the goal since he took over the Omaha, Nebraska-based company in 1965.
