Warren Buffett – investor

These are Warren Buffett’s good things.

What are some good things you’ve read?

The Intelligent Investor, “my favorite book on investing.”

The Smartest Guys in the Room.  A book “well reported and well written.”

The annual letter that Jamie Dimon at JP Morgan writes.

What are some good things you’ve watched?

Nebraska Football.  In 2008 Buffett suggested they should win at least eight games, they won nine.

When Buffett was 21 he took the Dale Carnegie course saying “I couldn’t get in front of a crowd and give ‘ya my name.”

Buffett watches the stock market and in 2004 told investors it’s tough to know when to buy and sell in those markets. “That may seem easy to do when one looks through an always-clean, rear-view mirror. Unfortunately, however, it’s the windshield through which investors must peer, and that glass is invariably fogged.”

What are some good things you’ve used?

Cards for Bridge. In 2009 Buffett joked that when playing Bridge, if a naked woman walked by he wouldn’t even see her.

A Cadillac after seeing the GM CEO on television.  Buffett paid cash.
