Warren Buffett speaking to a group of students...

I really thought Buffet was making a mistake when he did that piece in the NY Times telling Americans to load the boat on U.S. equities last fall. He knows he’s not a good market timer so he shouldn’t have dumped so much money in the markets at one time. I don’t care what his holding period is, if you can get a better deal on the same stocks months later, one should take advantage of that.
