  • Buffett Up Big on Chinese Investment, Goldman Sachs 0 comments
    Jul 31, 2009 8:35 AM | about stocks: BRK.A, BRK.B, GS

    We generally don't pay much attention to short-term tallies of whose stocks are up or down, but Warren Buffett's success in picking investments over the past year is notable because the media has been beating up on him about "being too early" for quite some time. We recall several segments on financial television that criticized Buffett's investment in Goldman Sachs because the warrants he obtained quickly went underwater. Well, the naysayers have to move over because Buffett's long-term style has once again produced solid results in the short term, too.

    Read the Bloomberg article on Buffett's recent successes.

    Disclosure: No positions.
