1. Thanks to my loyal readers, Value Walk has been a wild success. For the time being I will be posting a lot more static content and posts, while maintaining the same quality. I am not going to post everything on Twitter, Facebook etc. The best way to follow me without missing any posts, is through Feedburner/email.
2. I will be adding some new calculators to the site in a week or two.
3. I promised in the post 2/3 investor resource pages a week. I hope starting now to do this for the next few months.
The page has been completely revamped, and includes articles going back as far as 1951.
Below is a partial excerpt followed by link to full page, which can also be found under Value investors-> Current Value Investors(http://www.valuewalk.com/warren-buffett/). I am going to restructure the whole investor resource page menu as I add more investors.
THE GREATEST INVESTOR OF ALL TIMES
Chairperson and CEO of Berkshire Hathawayconsistently ranked as world’s richest man
A legendary investor and philanthropist
Also known as the oracle of Omaha
Warren Buffett is an authority on value investing.
In 1950 when he was only 20 years old, he saved $19,800. In 1952, he went to GEICO insurance company in Washington, DC. There he met its Vice President Lormer Davidson and with him he discussed all about insurance business. Buffett acquired his graduation from Colombia University. First, he wanted to work for Wall Street but later decided to work at Omaha as a stockbroker and also took Dale Carnegie’s course on public speaking. This course enabled him to teach the |Investment Principles” at the Omaha University. Most of his students were almost twice his age. While teaching he was able to purchase a Sinclair Texaco gas station. Unfortunately, this turn out to be an unsuccessful investment.
In 1952, he was employed in Benjamin Graham’s partnership. His initial salary at that time was $12000. Benjamin Graham retired in 1956 with that the partnership ended. Buffett’s savings were more than $174,000. Then he started Buffett Partnership Ltd in Omaha.
