When he began his investing career, he would read 600 to 1,000 pages a day. According to Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholder letters and over two decades of interviews, these are the books that have guided Buffett’s financial wisdom. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. When Warren Buffett started his investing career, he would read 600, 750, or 1,000 pages of a book a day. Even now, he says he still spends about 80% of his day reading. “Look, my job is essentially just corralling more and more and more facts and information, and occasionally seeing whether that leads to some action,” he once said in an interview. “We don’t read other people’s opinions,” he said. “We want to get the facts, and then think.” To help you get into … [Read more...] about 19 books billionaire Warren Buffett thinks everyone should read
Warren Buffett on Saturday rejected a frequent criticism that his Berkshire Hathaway Inc does not disclose enough about its more than 90, often large operating businesses or its common stock investments. Buffett defended Berkshire's disclosures in responding to three questions at Berkshire's annual shareholder meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. Meyer Shields, of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, is among the critics of Berkshire's disclosures, saying in an April 28 report they leave investors "disproportionately reliant" on Buffett's public persona and past investment successes rather than actual knowledge about the company. Berkshire owns or co-owns several companies, such as the BNSF railroad, large enough to be in the Fortune 500 on their own, yet which merit no more than a couple of pages in its quarterly and annual reports. Profit and revenue for many smaller units are not disclosed at all. Buffett said "I don't think we actually provide less information" in periodic reports, but may present … [Read more...] about Warren Buffett: Berkshire discloses enough about itself
By Nicole Friedman WSJ Erik Holm WSJ Thu., May 2, 2019 Warren Buffett has always known how to make a buck. As the annual meeting for his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has grown in popularity over the years, Mr. Buffett and his staff have gone to greater and greater lengths to make sure attendees have plenty to spend their money on. For more than a decade, the meeting has been held at a massive arena in downtown Omaha, Neb., big enough to accommodate the tens of thousands who now make the pilgrimage to the event, often called “Woodstock for Capitalists.” The arena is adjoined by a 194,300-square-foot exhibit hall, and on Berkshire weekend, it is filled with products from dozens of Berkshire-owned companies, offering everything from candy and soda to mobile homes and chartered plane flights. Not all of Berkshire’s 60-odd subsidiaries participate, but a look at the floor of the exhibit hall offers a glimpse at just how vast Mr. Buffett’s empire has … [Read more...] about Warren Buffett’s empire, in 194,300 square feet
REUTERS: When Warren Buffett takes the stage at Berkshire Hathaway Inc's shareholders' meeting on Saturday, the 88-year-old billionaire will be greeted, as usual, by tens of thousands of adoring followers from around the world.Yet the Berkshire chairman and chief executive officer's optimism about the state of capitalism, a likely theme as he and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger field questions for five hours, may appear out of touch with the rise of populism in his country.Buffett's endorsements of corporate stock buybacks, the much-criticized longtime Berkshire holding Wells Fargo, and employer-focused attempts to reform healthcare put the Oracle of Omaha at odds with the drive among some Americans to tackle income inequality using root-and-branch reforms.Many announced Democratic presidential candidates for 2020 have endorsed such measures as government-sponsored healthcare and the reining in of big banks, policies that might seem antithetical to Buffett's Omaha, Nebraska-based … [Read more...] about Pilgrimage to see Warren Buffett out of step with populist mood
