How Warren Buffett’s portfolio is hurting and what he’s likely doing right now

I read an article by Shawn Langlois a couple of days ago on MarketWatch. He’d analysed Warren Buffett’s portfolio of public companies held by Berkshire Hathaway. And citing information provided by Bespoke Investment Group, he estimated that the stocks were down by an average of 37% at the recent bottom of the general market plunge.Buffett’s never seen anything like it!Of course, in the couple of days since, Buffett will have seen many of his holdings bounce back up a bit. But the billionaire’s stock picks are not immune to market volatility. And I’m hoping that may make you feel a little more comfortable with the performance of your own portfolio recently.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Every stock in the Buffett stable was down. Names such as Apple, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, American Express, Wells Fargo, Kraft Heinz and others. But Buffett himself is barely raising one of those famous eyebrows.According to Langlois, Buffett did say earlier in the month that he’d never seen anything like the coronavirus pandemic in all his years of investing. But “if you stick around long enough, you’ll see everything in markets,” he told Yahoo Finance. “And it may have taken me to 89 years of age to throw this one into the experience.”Of course, Buffett is as cool as a cucumber about the whole affair. He’s known for imploring us all to become comfortable with reversals that can take our portfolios down by 50% and more. And we mustn’t sell up in a panic and run for the hills. Instead, he says “be greedy when others are fearful” – I’m sure you know the tune by now!Focused on allocating capitalIndeed, instead of panicking, I reckon Buffett is probably focused on where he can invest some of the billions of cash he’s sitting on. The money has been waiting for times such as this, and now he’s probably going to find a new home for some of it.And that’s what I’m doing too. Now’s the opportunity to go shopping for shares backed by strong, cash-generating and well-financed business. I’m looking for companies with robust quality metrics, high profit margins, a consistent record of trading, incremental growth and an identifiable niche in the market that’s defendable.But I’m not that clever, because I got all those ideas from Buffett. And he’s a billionaire because of his approach to investing, whereas I’m not! However, I think every individual investor can benefit from studying Buffett’s career, techniques and wisdom. He broadcasts loud and clear, and one of the best sources of information is his library of shareholder letters he produces for those holding Berkshire Hathaway stock. Happily, he makes the letters available to all. Just Google it.But if you haven’t the time or inclination to pick your own shares, don’t let it put you off investing in the stock market. Simple, low-cost, passive index trackers, and managed funds, may also serve you well in the years ahead. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Munster stand up for their Man

first_imgFor more information, see www.mycharity.ie/event/munster_rugby_charity_cycleThis article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK All the O’s – O’Gara, O’Callaghan and O’ConnellIf you’re looking for a change of pace this month, take a leaf out of Donncha O’Callaghan’s book. He’s urging rugby fans in Ireland and the UK to get on their bikes in support of Paul Darbyshire.Originally from Wigan, Darbyshire is Munster’s head of strength and conditioning, having arrived at the province in 2007 from rugby league side Warrington Wolves, and was sadly diagnosed with motor neurone disease in September. O’Callaghan, joined by the rest of the Munster squad and a horde of red-shirted fans, will take part in a cycle ride, which covers 300 miles from 19-23 June and goes from Musgrave Park to Colwyn Bay via Dublin, then on to Warrington. Anyone can take part, whether cycling or just dropping in for the craic, and funds raised will go to the Darbyshire family and research into the illness.The news came as a shock to Munster, not least because of the mentality Darbyshire has instilled the squad. “The initial shock was frightening for us because Darbs is like superman,” says O’Callaghan. “He changed the mindset in how we trained and made us believe that our bodies could do anything. He’s still coming to our matches, which is typical of him.”O’Callaghan says Darbyshire and his family are an integral part of Munster. “If the lads are ever going out for a meal Darbs will always come with us. He’s the real heartbeat of the place. He’s a massive part ofour squad and so are his family, and that will always be the case.”The cycle ride will be a tough haul, just like Darbyshire’s training routines, but rugby stars from all the provinces, hurlers, footballers and rugby league players are all looking forward to having a great time. “Even (John) Hayes, who’d probably break a bike if he sat on it, will be around squirting us with water bottles and his wife will be doing physio,” O’Callaghan says. “The craic will be hugely important. It’s the way Darbs would have done it.” Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here.

Day One Highlights from the IRB Junior World Championship

first_imgThursday Jun 6, 2013 Day One Highlights from the IRB Junior World Championship The IRB Junior World Championship kicked off in France yesterday, with defending champions South Africa looking strong, and Argentina, England, Ireland, New Zealand and Wales all winning their games. We’ve got highlights from all six matches for you. If you were following RD on Twitter or Facebook last night you will have noted that it was quite an eventful evening in the tournament, as South Africa came close to racking up 100 points against the USA, while New Zealand beat Fiji comfortably in a game that included 2 red cards.Below are quick match recaps from all six games, as well as links to all the highlights from the IRB. If you prefer it, you also have the option to view all the videos and info on one page. In what was considered a junior version of ‘Le Crunch’, hosts France failed to score a try as England came away 30-6 victors. Captain Jack Clifford scored twice, following on from his hat-trick against France in the Six Nations earlier this year. View Highlights Ireland were ‘over the moon’ with their 19-15 upset victory over Australia in Vannes. Last year they shocked eventual champions South Africa on the opening day, so this second big scalp will give them confidence going forward. Australia meanwhile felt they didn’t take their opportunities. View Highlights South Africa recordered the biggest ever winning margin as they beat the USA 97-0 in La Roche-sur-Yon. They scored 16 tries in total, and came close to the elusive 100 mark at full time, but captain Ruan Steenkamp held onto a pass over the tryline. Sevens star Seabelo Senatla scored four tries. View Highlights In the most talked about game of the day, for all the wrong reasons, Fiji had two players red carded and three yellow carded as they lost 59-6 to New Zealand. At one stage they were playing with just 11 players on the park. After some debatable decisions, the referee was booed off the park.View Highlights The young Argentinians showed that they’re a force to be reckoned with as they were convincing 44-13 winners against Scotland, who admitted that they were hammered up front. Test capped flyhalf Patricio Fernandez scored 29 points. Argentina play Samoa next, in a match they will be favourites to win. View Highlights Wales and Samoa opened the tournament, as the Welshmen notched up a convincing 42-3 bonus point win over the pacific islanders.
