Since you are such an expert on Buffett, maybe you could tell us how Buffett distinguishes between acquisitions and buying publicly traded stocks in terms of his valuation process.

Plenty has been written about Buffett's valuation methods and I don't have anything fresh to add to that volume of lore. And I don't think that it makes any difference to the topic of this thread which is the myth: "Invest like an owner." When you buy an asset you have to put a value on it to determine if the ask price is "reasonable." Both owners and investors have to do that.
