I love the investor, Warren Buffett. Hate the politician, Warren Buffett, but love the investor.

Invest Like Warren Buffett

On 12/06/2009, in Investment Strategies, by Jordan Wilson

Want to mimic the value investing style of famed investor, Warren Buffett?

This Globe and Mail article examines how to invest like Mr. Buffett.

The article references Validea, a company that allows you to track model portfolios each based on the philosophy of a different investment guru. Not interested in Warren Buffett?
