Headquartered in Omaha, US, Berkshire Hathaway is currently the highest-priced shares in the US.

Initially, they started with Textile manufacturing and now own numerous companies under it. 

Why Berkshire Hathaway stock is so expensive?

Berkshire Hathaway has a long history of constant growth and has been involved with numerous companies. This has helped the company in gaining a good reputation in the market. Another major reason is the company did not go through any stock splits. This helped in increasing the number of shares outstanding while decreasing the price of each share. On the other hand, companies like Microsoft, Apple, or Amazon offer stock splits which make the share trading at much lower prices because of their higher share count. 

Moreover, as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet doesn’t promote any stock splits. Intentionally, he has kept the price of share high as it makes hard to trade, hence, discourages people from short term trading.
