New VIDEOS (2011) of Buffett Lectures and MORE

Beware of geeks bearing formulas.

Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.–Warren Buffett


Buffett on an INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY and the Four Filters in finding investments. He discusses search strategy, valuation and moats. 10 minutes:  This will get you started.

A great review of his life and investing principles–Buffett Lecture to UGA Students on July 2011 (1 hour and 20 minutes):

Buffett lectures on Valuation, Moats, and You to Graduate Business School Students in INDIA (101 minutes):

Repeats some of what he said to the University of Georgia students but the interaction with the Indian Students is educational.

If you are hearing Buffett’s lectures for the first time, I STRONGLY suggest you read his writings (The Essays and Lessons of Warren Buffett) FREE here: then go back and hear the lectures again.  Repeat as necessary.

For example, his attack on Beta is instructive for our discussion of skill vs. luck (Yachtman) that we will continue later. See his quote: The fashion of beta, according to Buffett, suffers from inattention to “a fundamental principle: Itis better to be approximately right than precisely wrong.” Long-term investment success depends not on studying betas and maintaining a diversified portfolio, but on recognizing that as an investor, one is the owner of a business. Reconfiguring a portfolio by buying and selling stocks to accommodate the desired beta-risk profile defeats long-term investment success. Such “flitting from flower to flower” imposes huge transaction costs in the forms of spreads, fees and commissions, not to mention taxes.

  1. Thank you for pulling all of these lectures together. Very helpful

  2. Great resources 😀
    Thanks for sharing!

    On the buttom of the page there is a video which Alice Shroeder, the author of The Snowball explains the thought process that Buffett goes through to make his investmenet decision (forward to about 24:20). Schroeder originally wrote an entire chapter explains this process, but the publisher decided that it might be too difficult for average readers to understand it and decided to eliminate for the book.
