RAPAPORT... Revenue from Berkshire Hathaway’s retail division, including three jewelry businesses, grew 14 percent to $15.09 billion last year, the company reported over the weekend.

Pre-tax earnings for the unit increased 17 percent to $659 million in 2016, the Warren Buffett-owned conglomerate said.

The rise in sales reflected the acquisitions of car-dealership group Berkshire Hathaway Automotive and motorcycle-accessory retailer Detlev Louis Motorrad in 2015. The retail division also includes jewelers Borsheims, Helzberg and Ben Bridge.
