ONLINE ORIGINAL: Homespun Wisdom from the ``Oracle of Omaha''
Best of Buffett
"Our goal is to find an outstanding business at a sensible price, not a mediocre business at a bargain price."
"Consciously paying more for a stock than its calculated value... should be labeled speculation (which is neither illegal, immoral, nor - in our view - financially fattening."
"The key to successful investing was the purchase of shares in good businesses when market prices were at a large discount from underlying business values."
More Buffett Quotes
"Clearly, investors must always keep their guard up and use accounting numbers as a beginning, not an end, in their attempts to calculate true 'economic earnings' accruing to them."
"Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks."
"Whatever you thought about the stock market before the attack on the World Trade Center is what you should be thinking today. I don't have any feeling that this will cause the market to behave much differently from how it would have behaved without this disaster. It's a market that has been through a bubble. If you think the market was way too high to start with, that's what you should still rationally be thinking. What has happened doesn't change the productivity of the American worker. It doesn't change my feeling about what to pay for a business that I've been negotiating to buy." Warren Buffett, "Three Leaders Speak,"
Fortune, October 1, 2001.
...I’ll keep looking for sensible acquisitions and continue to manage our resources so that Berkshire remains a financial Rock of Gibraltar. I’m sure we are in a recession, probably a relatively deep and extended one, but they are part of business life and we are prepared." ~ Warren Buffett ~
