Last month, we chatted with Emmy Award-winning journalist and FOX Business Network anchor Liz Claman about Warren Buffett – the unparalleled stock picker she’s had the privilege of interviewing more than 27 times in her career. In the first week of May, Claman attended the annual shareholder meeting for Berkshire Hathaway, the uber-profitable holding company Buffett still heads at the age of 82. This is a shareholder meeting unlike any other – an investor-palooza of sorts, complete with Buffett emblazoned souvenirs and more than 35,000 Buffett fans, top CEOs and even celebrities.
Claman got to spend the weekend in Omaha, Nebraska, catching up with Buffett and several other business leaders from around the country. And while she’s attended many of Berkshire’s annual meetings, this year she found something that had been missing for a few years: optimism. Read more in my new article on GoldenGirlFinance.com.
Warren Buffett’s been called all kinds of things: A sage, an oracle, a wizard, the greatest investor who ever lived. In terms of his stock-picking abilities, those terms are hard to argue with. In 2013, he had a net worth of around $50 billion, most of which he earned through many years of very smart investing. But Buffett isn’t just known for his wealth and stock wizardry. In fact, this 82-year-old might be better known for the witty quips and quotes he still delivers with remarkable regularity.
We wanted some insight into what Mr. Buffett is like – and perhaps learn a few of his secrets – so we chatted with Liz Claman, an Emmy Award-winning journalist and anchor at FOX Business Network. Since joining the network in 2007, Claman has spoken with Buffett 27 times, and will be sitting down with him again in May, when she hosts a “Weekend With Warren” live from the Berkshire Hathaway Headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.
These are the top questions we’d like to ask of the Oracle….but we don’t exactly travel in the same circles. So we brought our questions to Claman. Get some insight into what she’s learned about Buffett so far in my new post on GoldenGirlFinance.com.
