Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the conglomerate run by billionaire Warren Buffett, on Saturday reported a 67 percent increase in quarterly operating profit, as insurance underwriting rebounded and several businesses benefited from a growing economy and improving demand.

亿万富翁沃伦·巴菲特旗下集团伯克希尔-哈撒韦于周六宣布上季度运营利润上涨67%,保险公司业绩实现反弹,几家及子公司也因经济增长和需求增加而获益。

Results topped analyst forecasts, as underwriting profit at the Geico auto insurance unit more than quintupled, while earnings surged at the BNSF railroad and rose in Berkshire’s service and retailing operations.

这个结果在分析人士的预料之外,Geico车险公司的盈利上涨了五倍多,BNSF铁路公司和服务及零售板块的营收利润大幅飙升。

Net income, meanwhile, nearly tripled, though that reflected a new accounting rule requiring Berkshire to report unrealized gains on its stock investments with earnings. Buffett says that rule distorts net results and can mislead investors.

与此同时,尽管新的会计准则要求伯克希尔-哈撒韦公司上报股票投资收入中的未实现收益,伯克希尔-哈撒韦公司的净收入仍然增加了近三倍之多。巴菲特表示这项准则影响了公司净值,会误导投资人。

Berkshire said second-quarter operating profit rose to $6.89 billion, or roughly $4,190 per Class A share, from $4.12 billion, or $2,505 per share, a year earlier.

伯克希尔表示第二季度营收利润由去年的A股每股2505美元,总价41.2亿美元上涨到A股每股4190美元,总价68.9亿美元。

Analysts on average expected operating profit of $3,387 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

根据 Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S估计,分析人士普遍预测每股股价为3387美元。

Net income rose to $12.01 billion, or $7,301 per Class A share, from $4.26 billion, or $2,592 per share, a year earlier.

公司的净收入则由去年的每股2592美元总价42.6亿美元上升至每股7301美元,总价120.1亿美元。

Book value per Class A share, which reflects assets minus liabilities and is a preferred measure of growth for Buffett, rose 3 percent from the end of March to $217,677.

A股每股净值反映了资产与债务之差,这是巴菲特钟爱的业绩增长衡量法,而伯克希尔-哈撒韦的A股每股净值比3月底增长了3%,达到217,677美元。

Berkshire also ended June with $111.1 billion of cash and equivalents, some of which Buffett could use to repurchase stock under a new policy giving him and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger more freedom to conduct buybacks as big acquisitions have been hard to find.

截止六月底,伯克希尔-哈撒韦的现金和等价物达到1110.1亿美元,大型收购的机会可遇不可求,而在新政策规定下巴菲特和副主席查理?芒格在股票回购方面享有更多的自由,巴菲特可以使用部分现金回购股票。

Buffett has made no major acquisitions for Berkshire since the $32.1 billion purchase of aircraft parts maker Precision Castparts in January 2016.

自从2016年1月斥资321亿美元收购飞机零部件生产商精密铸件公司以来,巴菲特还没进行任何大型收购。

He has spent some money on stocks, and Berkshire said it ended June with a $47.2 billion stake in iPhone maker Apple Inc.

巴菲特将部分资金投入股票,伯克希尔-哈撒韦表示截止6月底已收购了苹果公司价值472亿的股票。

Berkshire said it has not bought back stock in 2018.

伯克希尔-哈撒韦表示公司在2018年并未进行股票回购。

Class A shares of Berkshire closed Friday at $304,671, or 7 percent below their Jan. 29 peak, while Class B shares closed at $200.24, or 8 percent below its peak on the same day.

上周五,伯克希尔-哈撒韦的A股股价收于304,671美元,比今年1月29日的最高点下降7%;而B股股价则收于200.24美元,比今年1月29日最高点下降8%。
