Invest like Warren Buffet
Written by Michael Rivezzo
No,it's probably not economically possible for you to actually invest like Warren Buffet. His trading volume is in the billions and his investments usually signify ownershop of a company. He even gets a price that is strictly for the "VIP" investors. These stocks are commonly known as preferred shares.
Warren Buffet appears to have some cult like following in the business world. His books become instant New York Times Bestsellers and everytime he invests it makes the front page on every business journal. His company Berkshire Hathaway is currently trading over 100,000 dollars. Investors who are financially able to afford one share make it every year to the shareholder's meeting to hear Warren speak. He owns over 5% of Coke and didn't follow the whole dot come phase of the late 90's.
But yet its still possible to invest like him regardless of assets. His strategy is yet simple for even the common investor. Invest in companies that are well-established, while yet undervalued. In the slang of investors, Buffet is a long trader, he holds shares for the long run. He learned the hard way that you must have patience with the stock market and he is known for several quotes regarding this.
""The stock market is designed to transfer money from the active to the patient."
