Warren Buffett is one of the worlds most successful investors, amassing a fortune of over $84 billion dollars! Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to think like Warren Buffett? Well now you can!
Warren’s daughter-in-law, Mary Buffett wrote a book called ‘Buffettology’, which delves into the thinking of Buffett. It’s a fantastic book – a must read. Towards the start of the book Mary talks through 9 key questions that Buffett will always ask when he’s determining if a stock is worth buying. These are questions that anyone can answer. You don’t need a degree or much knowledge in investing to have a crack at answering these yourself.
This episode we each choose a company and answer the first 4 questions ourselves, to see if we’ve chosen a company that Buffett himself would invest in.
In this episode you will learn:
- If our businesses have an identifiable consumer monopoly
- If the earnings of our companies are strong, and showing upward trend
- If our companies are conservatively financed
- If the companies of choice consistently earn high rate of return on shareholders’ equity
