Why Warren Buffett Really Likes Malone's Liberty Global

Consolidation on the Horizon?

Laffont cited Liberty Global as potentially an attractive asset for large European conglomerates or U.S.-based players looking to diversify from their home market. Laffont also cited Vodafone, AT&T and Comcast as possible suitors for Liberty Global, while noting that the company remains undervalued even if it is not up for sale.

The hedge fund manager said Liberty Global currently trades at about eleven times its free cash flow per share, and could more than double to $100 a share as European media markets catch up to the U.S.

Shares of Liberty Global were slipping 1.5% to $43, extending its 2014 decline to 5.5%. Berkshire Hathaway A shares were slipping 0.3% to $188,845.
