Buffett's Berkshire to Invest $10 Billion in Occidental For Anadarko Takeover

(edited)

Warren Buffett is getting involved in a rare bidding war unfolding in the energy industry. Berkshire Hathaway has committed a $10 billion preferred stock investment in Occidental Petroleum contingent on the company completing its proposed takeover of Anadarko Petroleum. Last week, Occidental made a rival bid for the oil and gas driller, challenging Chevron’s $33 billion buyout of Anadarko.
