An interesting book with lots of facts. Tells us how Warren Buffet invests and how to invest. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stocks and finance. This is a very in depth book written by Buffets wife on how and when Buffet decided to invest and in what also that investors should not be scared of losing a little because it will happen the key point is not giving in because like everything the stock will eventually rise and the investor will start making money. Key companies and st ...more
This book talks about the stocks Warren Buffett has in his portfolio in 2011. Surprisingly, many of the stocks talked about in this book are the same ones I would pick if I was in the stock market. However, the books goes into reasoning behind why Warren Buffett picks them, instead of a hunch.

Tip of the iceberg of selecting high-return stocks.

In addition to brief summary of businesses and introducing the reader to discounting of future revenue stream and the notion of "equity bond". As its main dish, the book plays engages in: let's conservatively extrapolate past 10 years of financial performance to the next 10.
While some "Buffett stocks" are probably the best stocks to do that to (KO, WFC), it is a dangerous game to play, and grossly oversimplifies what I suspect Buffett thinks abo
This one with business suite on the cover I don't mind. Not a 'selfie' pics.
Actually I just read 10 chapter out of 24 but I think it's enough to get the majority of the idea. So P/E and Book Value.
I never interested into copycating the way other people trading. My first good book in swing trading is "Swing trading for dummies" where I found motto "don't let other people do the analysis for you", not people in twitter, nor mailing list. And then I read the hardcore "charting only not looking at

The Warren Buffett Stock Portfolio is a nice primer for beginner-level long-term investors. The book gives a compact overview of Warren Buffett's ideology on playing the stock market, as well as a short bio on how he made his wealth. He outlines his method through three indicators - historic ~10-year trend P/E ratios, whether xyz company has a "durable competitive advantage", - and espouses the purchase of shares in bear markets.

This book is a decent read and provides a case study of 17 major f

This is very much a formula book with predictable, repetitive language. But obviously, the writers are more about directly communicating practical information than they are about writing dynamic sentences. This book is a primer for stock market and investor aficionados, where I rank myself as an amateur who wants to be more investor-savvy. Reading this as an audiobook, I learned some big-picture facts: how Warren Buffet chooses his investments, why and when he buys into companies, things to look ...more

Probably the most interesting aspect of this book includes the last chapter detailing the new management to Berkshire Hathaway; Todd Combs and Ted Weschler. Combs is already appearing very Buffett-like in his recent investments in Mastercard and Dollar General for the firm.

The book uses repetition to cover key Buffett holdings such as Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, Moody's and Wal-Mart, projecting forward using the 10 year earnings growth rate and initial rate of return for each stock and subsequently
Robert Popple
This book is a must read for any serious stock market investor. Warren is no run-of-the-mill investor, rather a brilliant strategic thinker who applies sound fundamentals to investing. Forget speculation; it's not on Warren's radar screen. This book provides the basic methodology of EPS and BVPS that he uses to size up the advisability of sinking money into a long term investment, vividly illustrated with seventeen worked examples. A no-lose read!
Christopher Obert
An interesting book. It was not written by Mr. Buffett but the authors say that is relays the facts that Warren lives by. The book did have a few typos but it only disrupted my reading a little bit. The book gives a quick background on Mr. Buffett and his stock picking mentality and give details on 18 different stocks. It is a quick read and the chapters on the 18 stocks could be read in any order or you could just read the reports on the stocks that you are interested in. In general I would say ...more

Not applicable to Indian markets where fixed deposits can get you 11-14% returns
This book does a very good job of boiling down Mr. Buffett's investment strategy into a series of repeatable steps. This approach makes it simple to apply (in some measure) the same techniques in one's own personal investment approach.
Formulaic, clear and concise. No new information past the first thirty pages or so, it's the same stuff throughout the entite book.
This is exactly as advertised, no more or less.
Debbie Thompson
I really enjoyed this book. Fascinating information about these large companies and investment numbers.
