Warren Buffett Talks Business
Legendary investor Warren Buffett imparts investing advice that is both shrewd and homespun in this session filmed in late 1994 before an audience of business students at the University of North Carolina. Seated casually on the edge of a desk, the “Oracle of Omaha” opens the session by recounting how he became involved with the investment firm of Solomon Brothers after a financial scandal at the end of the 1980s and had to suddenly pick someone to run the company. Detailing how he sizes up executives, Buffett engages the students in a mental game about identifying potentially successful people, and winds up urging them to cultivate the desirable qualities in themselves. To get the students more involved, Buffett quickly moves to a question-and-answer session, inviting the students to ask “nasty questions” to keep things interesting. For the most part Buffett gets softball questions, but his answers to such queries as why he never split the stock of his investment company, Berkshire Hathaway, how he values other companies, and in general what it takes to become a great investor, Buffett is expansive and cites numerous examples from his own life. And while his general principles are probably familiar to anyone truly interested in investing, hearing Buffett express them in his own style is instructive. It might be noted that as Buffett has typically avoided technology stocks on principle, his remarks on his own particular investment style have aged well, and though this appearance was before the market’s steep advance in the 1990s, it is not out of date. –Robert J.
