Example text

Under Buffett’s direction, the company now owns interests in a variety of different businesses, ranging from insurance to candy. The nature of these businesses, and how Buffett happens to choose them, is the subject of intense study by investors small and large. Buffett has quite simply been called the world’s greatest investor. And with good reason. According to Berkshire’s 2000 annual report, the company has achieved annual compound investment returns of 23 percent over the past 36 years. If you’ve been a student of the stock market for any length of time, you know what an extraordinary record this is.

Why should we engage in life planning? Why not just live in the moment and enjoy our money as it flows to us throughout our lifetimes? Well, certain things in life require more than one month’s salary. And paying for them after the fact doesn’t work so well either. Commercialism and credit cards have formed terrible habits in the American people. They make us want things, and then they show us how easy it is to get them. Buy now, pay later.

During his senior year at the University of Nebraska, Buffett read Benjamin Graham and David Dodd’s classic book, Security Analysis. This book so influenced Buffett that after receiving his college degree he went to New York to study with Ben Graham at the Columbia Graduate Business School. Graham, who had lost everything in the stock market crash of 1929, preached the importance of understanding a company’s intrinsic value and said that without some idea of a company’s true worth, the “tides of pessimism and euphoria which sweep the market” could mislead investors into overvaluing or undervaluing a stock.
