The rally in Berkshire Hathaway stock this year could stall after the company’s fourth‑quarter earnings report released on Saturday. The results beat expectations: Operating earnings per Class A share rose 30% to $5,881 in the fourth quarter, about 3% above the FactSet consensus. But the beat was smaller than in the third quarter, when earnings topped expectations by nearly 15%. Profits were lower in the fourth quarter at two of Berkshire’s key divisions ‑ Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, a freight transportation company, and Berkshire Hathaway Energy, which operates a group of electric utilities, natural gas pipelines, and a real estate brokerage business.

Mercedes‑Benz Group raised its dividend despite posting a decline for fourth‑quarter sales and net profit, and forecast lower earnings this year on geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty. The German luxury‑car maker said that net profit slipped 21.5% on year to 3.16 billion euros ($3.42 billion), as inflation and supply‑chain costs pressured the company’s bottom line. Analysts expected net profit to finish the quarter at EUR2.80 billion, according to Visible Alpha.
