This blog is being launched on the occasion of Warren Buffett’s 80th Birthday (August 30, 2010). It will primarily provide analyses of Berkshire Hathaway’s investments, news releases, and statements made by Warren Buffett. The intent is to expand upon major news items relating to Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway. I hope that the material provided here will be useful to value investors and others who wish to learn from Warren Buffett.
I have been closely following Warren Buffett’s investment philosophy for 25 years and regularly incorporate this material in my finance classes at the University of Maryland (Robert H. Smith School of Business). I have accompanied University of Maryland students on a trip to Omaha for a private Q&A session with Warren Buffett and regularly attend Berkshire Hathaway annual meetings. Detailed notes from the last five annual meetings as well as my recent media interviews relating to Mr. Buffett are available on my personal website:
