Everyone is always looking for an edge when it comes to equities. Wall Street has its celebrities just like the film and music industries, and Warren Edward Buffett is probably at the top of the list when it comes to following people who may have the best insight into where the market is heading. If you're just getting into stock investing and don't know about Berkshire Hathaway, it's one conglomerate you will want to research. They own substantial stakes in other companies like American Express, Coca-Cola, Apple - so much that when they buy or sell millions of shares in these companies it impacts their stock price. Conversely, when these companies do really poorly, the value of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio can swing by several billion dollars each day.
Yes!! That's several billion dollars.
Warren just released his annual letter to shareholders a few hours ago which is always something those in the industry like to read.
