Vanguard's Index Move Triggers a $1B Stock Buy

News summary by MFWire's editors

The ongoing evolution of Vanguard's [profile] indexing has had another big impact on the financial world-- this time for Berkshire Hathaway, reports Allan Roth for CBS News.

The Vanguard Total Stock Index fund will buy $1 billion worth of Berkshire stock.

The move results from an October 2 announcement that the giant index fund company is changing index providers for 22 of its index funds: from MSCI to FTSE and the University of Chicago's CRSP.

Berkshire has two different share classes, but MSCI included only the B share and left out the A share. Since Berkshire's total value comprises both share classes, the CRSP index includes both. The additional purchase represents about 0.5 percent of Berkshire shares.
