Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) probably enjoys more shareholder loyalty and dedication than any company in history. 

Year after year, shareholders return to Omaha to hear Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger expound on topics large and small. And Buffett and Munger are nothing if not consistent. They have been following the same common-sense investment philosophy for decades, and generously sharing the "secrets" to their success with anyone who cares to listen.

As one shareholder put it in this year's introductory video, going to the Berkshire annual meeting is a bit like going to church. Shareholders know what they're going to hear, they already believe in Buffett and Munger's approach, but they keep coming back to have the message reinforced.
