That is a great quote, and he has done a very good job at doing that in the past. Its always good to prepare for your predictions if you believe them to be true.

This is one of my favorite one's: "Predicting rain doesn't count. Building arks does."

Preparation for something bad to happen is more important that predicting it will happen. Your prediction won't save you, nor will it stop the act from happening. Very down-to-earth advice.

I agree with you, Cents. I'm sure he will never let the secret out of how he really predicts the market as well as he does. I will admit that I don't follow him as closely as I should, but I do love some of his famous business quotes.

I think its also important to note, he certainly isn't the only person to attribute to his success, especially today. He is getting up there in age and has a huge investment team behind him. I would say he is not in the deal flow today as much as he was in the 70s and 80s. He still likes to give advice and be in the public, but I would say he isn't running the day to day investments anymore.

I will admit I pay attention when I hear Warren Buffet's name come up, but I don't go out of my way to follow him or seek out his comments. I tend to think he probably keeps his true strategy close to the vest and what he puts out for the public is very generalized.

I agree. I would probably say I am not a Buffet cult follower, but I have to agree it is very hard to ignore his investment insights. He has been extremely consistent and obviously hugely successful when it comes to investing.

That's very true. Buffet is certainly not a bad one to follow when it comes to investment strategy. He makes money far more consistently than many so-called brokers and financial advisers.

That's the truth, isn't it?! Warren Buffet is a financial genius and I wish I had an ounce of his capability for knowing the right thing to do and when to do it.

There are few charts look as strong as s&p 500 and are providing some of the positive feedback as market is bottomed in 2009 and s&p 500 have gained 215% and some of the investors remains bullish, the market cap to gross domestic GDP ratio displays market is seriously overvalued.As per interview published in Fortune Magazine in 2001 warren buffet states that market cap to GDP indicator is probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.
As per Buffet indicator s&p500 will return approx 0.2% a year at this level of valuation which includes dividends yielding around 2% a year.
