Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway Challenge

|Includes:Berkshire Hathaway Inc (BRK.A), BRK.B

At the beginning of the year I decided to test the theory that an individual investor using the right tools, common sense and discipline could not only beat the market but the best professional investor, Warren Buffett as well. Here's the quarter end progress report of the market and Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway fund vs. 3 of my own model portfolios that are carried on Barchart Stock Picks.

S & P 500

YTD - 10.61%
1 year - 14.20%

Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway Class A (NYSE:BRK.A)

YTD - 16.57%
1 year - 28.20%

YTD - 15.82%
1 year - 32.62%

Van Meerten Small Cap portfolio (VMVLS)
