Example text

49 WARREN BUFFETT He did well in school, coming 16th out of 374, and attended the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. He applied to Harvard for further study, but was turned down. This proved to be a great blessing in disguise, because his second choice, Columbia, was the academic home of Benjamin Graham, the genius pioneer of stock market analysis. ” Graham’s method was the opposite of speculation: he looked for the underlying value of a stock and for discrepancies between this value and the stock price.

Most of the young men he had worked with could only complain about how little they were getting paid for the little work they did. Come five o’clock, it never ceased to amaze him how crowded were the elevators in his building! His own philosophy was that if he was given a piece of work to do, he would finish it that day even if it meant staying late. ” Because he had adopted the philosophy that a person “got in this world about what he worked for,” he had achieved more by the age of 25 than many do in a whole career.

Personal traits In contrast to mutual fund supremos like Peter Lynch, Lowenstein observes, Buffett seems like something from another era.
