Warren Buffett Quotes

Out of the 107 quotes in this article, 1 sums up Buffett’s investment philosophy succinctly. This quote is below:

“We select such investments on a long-term basis, weighing the same factors as would be involved in the purchase of 100% of an operating business:

(1) favorable long-term economic characteristics;
(2) competent and honest management;
(3) purchase price attractive when measured against the yardstick of value to a private owner; and
(4) an industry with which we are familiar and whose long-term business characteristics we feel competent to judge.”

11 Long-Term Investing Quotes from Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is a long-term investor. Three of his longest holdings are shown below:

– American Express Company (NYSE:AXP): 1st purchase in 1964

– The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO): 1st purchase in 1988

– Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC): 1st purchase in 1989

“I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.”

This quote shows Warren Buffett thinks in investing time frames of at least 5 years. But his holding period is preferably much longer…

“Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.”


If you aren’t willing to own a stock for ten years, don’t even think about owning it for ten minutes”

These quotes shows that a 10 year holing period is really what you should look for when examining stocks to buy.

Even 10 years is too short a time period for outstanding businesses.

“When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever.”


“Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre.”
