BERKSHIRE HATHAWAYFinding Value in The Buckle Inc. (Kapitall)
In Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A) annual report, famed value investor Warren Buffett lists acquisition criteria that he deems to be important. He expects a record of consistent earnings power, good return on equity with little or no debt, capable management, and most importantly a simple business with entry barriers for competitors. Given Warren Buffett’s stellar investment track record, one would be hard pressed not to use his acquisition criteria as a benchmark or sanity check for their investments. Notwithstanding the price at which we can pay for companies that meet Buffett’s criteria, we think we have found a suitable candidate in The Buckle, Inc. (NYSE:BKE) as a potential pick for our portfolios.

I’m a kid from Akron who lived in poverty for a long time, and I sometimes send financial statements to one of the richest guys ever. It’s kind of scary. I’m like, ‘Why is he talking to me?’ But anyway, the e-mail was about representing your country. It’s not about sports. It’s about everything else.

The Billionaires vs. The Millionaires (ETFDailyNews)
Warren Buffett was at it again recently: telling anyone who would listen about the need for a “millionaires tax” in the United States. However, while the Corporate Media was (as usual) heaping praise on Buffett, the reality is that Warren Buffett is not being “magnanimous”, he’s being disingenuous. Why is Warren Buffett so adamant about the need for the Tax Man to start squeezing the millionaires? So that he (and his billionaire Oligarch-buddies) can continue to avoid paying his fair share of taxes.
