    Liberty Global bills itself as the world's largest international TV and broadband company, with operations in seven European countries. And the company – represented via Class A (LBTYA) and Liberty Global Class C Shares (LBTYK, $29.16) shares – is one of Berkshire's bets on communications and media companies whipped up by billionaire dealmaker John Malone. 

  • [By ]

    That's better than we can say for the Class A shares (LBTYA), which Berkshire Hathaway jettisoned completely during the second quarter. 

    Underperformance seems a likely motivating factor here. Consider that Buffett paid an average estimated price of $38.69 per share when he entered his Class A stake during the fourth quarter of 2013. At the end of Q2, the shares traded at $27.16.
