Warren Buffett Reaps $10 Billion From Crisis-Era Investments

A comment from Warren Buffett:

“In terms of simple profitability, an average investor could have done just as well investing in the stock market if they bought during the panic period. You make your best buys when people are overwhelmingly fearful.

Without bailouts Buffett’s firm doesn’t survive.

Nassim Taleb on Buffett v. Soros

Nassim Taleb:

Asked…if returns such as those posted by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Chief Executive Officer Warren Buffett — who amassed the world’s third-biggest personal fortune through decades of stock picks and takeovers — are the product of luck or talent, Taleb said both played a part. If given a choice between investing with Buffett and billionaire investor George Soros, Taleb also said he would probably pick the latter. “I am not saying Buffett isn’t as good as Soros,” he said. “I am saying that the probability Soros’s returns come from randomness is much smaller because he did almost everything: he bought currencies, he sold currencies, he did arbitrages. He made a lot more decisions. Buffett followed a strategy to buy companies that had a certain earnings profile, and it worked for him. There is a lot more luck involved in this strategy.”

Much wisdom there. More.
