Stocks Falling, Buffett Buying

Buffett Old School

He bought a shitload during the 230 point crash, you should too.

Warren Buffett loves it when a plan comes together, just like ol' Hannibal. The best guess you can make is that Buffett bought more of what he already owns.

The market continues it's drop today. The S&P 500 was at 1,984 last Friday, today it sits at 1,939.  The Dow Jones has fared worse falling from Friday's 17,138 to today's 16,763.  Let stocks tank because Warren is buying and he hopes stock prices continue to fall.  Best guess is he is adding to his current line-up of Berkshire holdings.  Link to interview from CNBC....

Let's review that list.  At this point as equities continue to drop consider buying what Berkshire is holding, that consists of the following:
