Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A): A Penny For Your Thoughts?

Is contrary-to-the-contrarian Klarman taking a wiser, more conservative approach to the markets than perma-bull Buffett? Time will tell best of all.

A penny for your thoughts?
As always, long-term success in the markets will be a direct result of smart stock picking. The presence of some troubling macro elements doesn’t mean that certain stocks won’t flourish in the coming months and years. This is the Buffett approach: Choose good companies and try to relax.
