Apologies if this has already been posted.

I recently came across this academic paper - http://www.econ.yale.edu/~af227/pdf/Buffett%27s%20Alpha%20-%... which purports to explain Buffett's outperformance. I found it quite interesting because all the recent academic findings the authors used (the betting against beta and quality factors) were long since informally discussed in Buffet's annual letters!
