The Most Important Warren Buffett Question Ever

It is the most pressing and important Warren Buffett question ever. No, not why he gets a free pass every year when he talks down stocks so that he can buy them; and no, not why he is so fond of the bullying Bill Gates.
The big question: Is he, or is he not, related to Jimmy “Margaritaville” Buffett? Because we investors & parrotheads want to know.

The answer can finally be revealed, and it is that the two Buffetts are … not related. According to a story in Fortune, Warren and Jimmy submitted to DNA tests (Warren spit repeatedly into a spectacle that was then FedEx-ed) through the Google-backed (and Sergey-spousal run) 23andMe two months ago, and the result was that the two men share a common ancestor — but only 10,000 years ago, long before surnames existed.

So much for that long-rumored Warren/Jimmy connection of a formal South Pacific penal colony.

  1. Warren buffett may have been a really great value investor. The problem that most folks don"t realize is this Warren Buffett has stated on numerous occasions and very directory to anyone considering buying shares in his holding company Berkshire Hathaway. Don't simply because of the holding companies extreme popularity its not the best place to be. The holding company as far as Warren Buffett sees it is overvalued in other words it is not a good value investment.. Theirs another very good point that warren buffett makes about Berkshire Hathaway and that is because of its enormous size it is forced to invest in largecap and megacap stocks which do not generally produce the very large returns that .Berkshire Hathaway has delivered in the past. But all of this stuff that Warren talks about concerning Berkshire Hathaway always seems to fall on deaf ears.
