The point is that Buffett values a company from an owner's perspective

That's the conventional wisdom the Buffett arduously cultivates. I believe that Buffett's motivation is the accumulation of float as I said in my previous reply.

While he takes advantage of float, that doesn't tell us anything about how he values businesses.

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.
