  1. And i still can’t afford a single Berkshire Hathaway share. How sad is that? Too expensive for my wallet 🙁

  2. It was nice indeed they broadcast their meeting live. I’ve been ripping my hair out for decades about not having this ability since virtually none of us can attend. SO its nice someone got the memo. Every investor in any company should watch these. It is very insightful and not as boring as you might think.

  3. The best advice is still to invest in markets you already know and go for the longterm.

  4. Thanks for the tip. I needed some advise on how and what to fill in my TFSA account.

  5. I use to respect Buffett immensely when he was younger. Although he does give some interesting advice from time to time his investment cleverness is now behind him. Some great books worth reading to all newbies though.

  6. lol, i have 3 of the 4 mentioned stocks. I am in good shape.

  7. The article brings up See’s candy. Never head of them and how it relates to Coca-Cola. Anyone have any backstory behind it?

  8. In short, it’s saying to invest in blue chip companies (high quality). But wouldn’t this say that these are for those who just want consistent dividend income and its not a path for those who want growth in their shares?

  9. Would Tim Hortons count as a defensive business to include in my portfolio?
