Buffett-back BYD’s profit soars (ThePost)
Chinese auto and battery maker BYD says half-year profit soared as sales in the world’s biggest car market recovered.

Warren Buffett is a man that needs little introduction. Many know him as one of the world’s wealthiest men (Buffett occupies the fourth spot on Forbes’s ‘World’s Billionaires List’) who built his remarkable fortune largely through rational and intelligent investing through his company, the American conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

Berkshire Hathaway: A stock that even indexers can like (TheGlobeAndMail)
Today I’m a full-fledged index investor, but there was a time when I owned some individual stocks. What was my favourite company back then? Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A) I was a devoted fan. For more than a dozen years, whenever its share price dropped, I scurried to buy more. By 2011, my Berkshire holdings had grown to $370,000 (U.S.). Like most stock investors, I had my reasons for owning it, but one in particular might surprise you. To me, it was an index fund on speed.
