Warren Buffett's stocks on sale

Warren Buffett—the greatest investor alive—has a simple investing strategy: buy low and hold forever. He prefers companies with long-term competitive advantages. He doesn't time the market. He just buys when the stocks look like a bargain.

A potentially successful investing strategy, then, would be to buy the stocks he owns when they sell near or below his purchase price. As of late February 2011, here are stocks that meet that criteria:


  1. Invest for the long term... not new, just smart.

  2. While Warren Buffet is no doubt bright and makes fewer investment mistakes than most others, Buffet is not infallible. He has even publicly admitted to making investment mistakes in the past such as US Air. Wouldn't your strategy just over-expose an investor to his mistakes and under expose him to Warren Buffet's winning investments? If one wants to replicate Warren Buffet's returns why not actually invest with Warren Buffet by buying shares in Berkshire Hathaway, perhaps "class b" shares if you can't afford the "class a" shares?
