Always. It pays to have the best capital allocator of all time on your side.

Buffet's chasing plain vanilla. Great for the long term but the world is ready for something more flavorful in the short run. Note the trendline is converging on the S&P500. BRK-B is definitely behaving like a mutual fund.

In only a few words? Warren Buffet. He's built a machine that continues to outperform the market and will continue to do so long into the future. The underlying businesses do very well and it is currently at a very solid valuation.

After the worst financial collapse since the Great Depression, three officials from the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission visited Warren Buffett at his office in Omaha, Nebraska. They wanted to ask America’s most successful investor about his 24 million shares in the credit-rating agency Moody’s. The commission would later identify Moody’s and other rating agencies as “key enablers of the financial meltdown,” for granting super-safe triple-A ratings to securities that were backed by junk mortgages. Trillions of dollars’ worth of rotten financial instruments—the fuel of the crisis—“could not have been marketed and sold without [the rating agencies’] seal of approval,” the commission concluded.
During that May 26, 2010, meeting, Buffett deflected responsibility for Moody’s actions. “I knew nothing about the management of Moody’s,” he told the federal investigators, explaining candidly why he owned so muThe single most important decision in evaluating a business is pricing power,” Buffett said. “If you’ve got the power to raise prices without losing business to a competitor, you’ve got a very good business.” The “big three” rating agencies—Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, and Fitch—controlled 95 percent of the rating-agency market, an insurmountable advantage over would-be competitors. “If you’ve got a good enough business, if you have a monopoly newspaper or if you have a network television station,” Buffett concluded, “your idiot nephew could run it.” Moody’s faced practically no market competition.

This is the wizard behind the curtain. The Wizard is 88 and I see an article in Motley Fool saying BUY AND NEVER SELL. I say shorrt nw
