How does the “Oracle of Omaha” do it? “My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest,” Buffet said. “My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions.”

Coca-Cola made you and your children fat and gave you heart disease and diabeetus*. Now sugar water sales are plummeting, so they're just selling you filtered municipal water for the same price. Wells Fargo stole your identity. Verizon... is just an a-hole for selling FiOS to Frontier when Frontier wasn't ready to absorb it.
soundtechie said: The point that being lost here is that those stocks where a good buy *when he bought them*. If they've gone up since then, they may no longer be a good buy. That's not quite accurate. You will hear Warren explain that if he has a position in a company he still sees upside potential. Of course you would not get the all the move. But his holding periods are very long. So you could actually follow his picks. Or just buy some Berkshire
his strategy isn't exactly rocket science. Not hard to put together a spreadsheet to calculate what he would consider 'favorable' stocks to purchase. Once identified, it's a matter of doing research to figure out which of those 'favorable' investments are good companies that should be invested in. One of his filters happens to be strong/consistent dividend growth
