Wise Words From Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett On Value Investing – CNBC
2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient
Warren Buffett On The Economy, The Deficit, LeBron James And BP


“The single most important decision in evaluating a business is pricing power. If you’ve got the power to raise prices without losing business to a competitor, you’ve got a very good business. And if you have to have a prayer session before raising the price by 10 percent, then you’ve got a terrible business.”

“The extraordinary business does not require good management.”

“Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.”
