"Sorry Cassie I don't mean to be rude - but you don't even know what his methods are so how do you know they make no sense to you..."

Fair critisism Barcoo,I stand corrected.
I havn't studied him, Buffett is a very deep subject!
Some of the things he is quoted as saying though really
put me off exploring any further..

Hagstrom quotes him---

"Buffett is blunt: Unless you can watch stock holdings decline by 50 percent without becoming panic-stricken, you should not be in the stock market"
and of course the famous comment about not holding a stock for 5
minutes if you wouldn't hold it for 50 years( or words to that effect.)

Really I dont feel comfortable with those concepts.. but should people want to do it that way, more power to 'em!

Did you like O'Neill's books by the way ?

Best regards.
