With the confidence of a man who has been there before, there was nothing about the financial meltdown that could rattle Warren Buffett.  In fact, while most investors were busy stuffing cash into their mattresses, the grandfatherly Buffett chose to wade into the panic, plucking stocks from the bargain bin. After all, heading for the exits just isn't his style... And that's why I have chosen Warren Buffet as my "Investor of the Year." You see, Warren marches to the beat of a different market drum. What seems to scare everyone else is strangely music to his ears. 2,039% Cumulative Gains... Just 16 months... Pure ...

Bill Gates, America's richest man with a net worth of $50 billion, has a personal balance sheet larger than the gross domestic product (GDP) of 140 countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Bolivia and Uruguay.

The World's Best Investment Philosophy
Ayn Rand argues that all of us have a philosophy of life. It’s just that your philosophy is either conscious, explicit, rational and practical or unconscious, random, unidentified and, therefore, impractical. It was her conviction that without a philosophy based on evidence and reason, you are inevitably led to “unwarranted conclusions, ... market research, surveys and trends


The Warren Buffett Investment Principles
That's because when it comes right down to it the best brand in the business belongs to Warren Buffett, that grandfatherly billionaire from Omaha, Nebraska. That's true now more than ever up on Wall Street, where the investing classes hang on his every word these days as they continue to come to grips with the dangers of a sub prime contagion that was never contained. Of course, to the set of value investors that have been following Warren Buffet's investment principles for years, all of this renewed attention probably comes as no surprise at all. There is a reason after all that he's called the Oracle of Omaha. industry trends, business articles and survey research
Today's Blue Chip Stock Market

Together, that put September's withdraws at the top of the all time list tripling the previous record set in 2001. Now if that's not a stampede to cash I don't know what one is. But as all of that money headed for the mattresses, folks like Warren Buffett have been going in through the out door, believing that certain ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

A Constructive Criticism of Value Funds
The month of May has been particularly difficult for value funds, which widely underperformed major indices. Their underperformance, in my opinion, should be a warning sign to investors of these funds, as it is not entirely clear that value managers have learned from the mistakes made in 2008. Although I am a big believer in value investing, there are several things about value funds that seem contrary to common sense investment principles. Not only have these well-known value funds underperformed, but in most of the cases they have done so significantly. According to, their May performance looks like this: To the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
