Warning! GuruFocus has detected 1 Warning Sign with WFC. If we go back through the archives, it is clear that Munger is far more patient than his colleague at Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B). Buffett has an advantage in that he owns Berkshire Hathaway and can do what he likes with the conglomerate's cash pile.
Warning! GuruFocus has detected 4 Warning Sign with AMZN. As a result, I want to highlight a selection of quotes from one of the most comprehensive interviews Bezos (who is relatively media shy) has ever given. It is a lengthy and frank talk about Amazon's successes and failures over the years.
The following four stocks are currently in the midst of strong trends according to VantagePoint, an AI charting platform that uses intermarket analysis and artificial intelligence to predict future price action 1-3 days in advance. Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) is up 18 percent since making a low on July 28.

The Fools are on the fence about some of these points as an impetus to dump an investment, but they're definitely ones you need to consider.

Bill Gates is the second richest man in the world (after Amazon's Jeff Bezos), with a net worth of over just under $95 billion as of August 17, 2018, according to Forbes. Gates has since retired from the day to day functioning of Microsoft and focuses his efforts on his philanthropic causes through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Foundation has a substantial portfolio of investments.
Wondering when Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is going to hit $1 trillion is so 1980s. Just $90 billion away from $1 and nine zeros, AMZN stock needs to increase $184 or 9.8% to become only the second public company to hit the exclusive market cap. No, the logical question is to ask when Amazon will hit $2 trillion.
The Oracle of Omaha hasn't invested in these areas. But they're great opportunities for investors who aren't already billionaires.

Both Fluke and Flounder are flat, bottom dwelling fish that live in the waters off Long Island. For those of you who like to get out there and fish these waters, these are fish that make for good eating, and generally speaking, are just not equipped to put up much of a fight.
A quarter is often shown with its relevant year, as in Q1 2018 or Q1/18, which represents the first quarter of the year 2018.

Each 10-Q contains the public company's unaudited financial statements and company operations information for the previous three months (quarter). 10-Qs are required for the first three quarters of the year.
Dollar strength has been a significant weight upon financial markets. President Xi, thought to be setting up for the long game against President Trump, might possibly be put in the position of trying to show progress on trade ahead of his nation's Q3 GDP report on October 15. The Chinese Commerce Ministry reaches out, and accepts the U.S. Treasury Department's long-standing invitation to come to Washington to talk.
Warren Buffett was a major shareholders in Walmart until 2016, when he sold most of Berkshire Hathaway's stake in the retailer. At that time, Buffett cited Jeff Bezos and Amazon as a threat that made retail stocks a "tough" game. Walmart stock has risen from the $70-range to the $100-range since Berkshire sold billions in shares, but Berkshire has seen newer holdings in tech, such as Apple, and deep value plays, such as Teva Pharmaceuticals, perform very well.
Cheap and sleek, manufactured housing in the U.S. is primed for a comeback. Consolidation among producers after the subprime crisis and the exodus of lenders have left just a few businesses -- including three owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) took five and a half years to go from a $500 billion to a $1 trillion company. Now, investors will expect AAPL stock to double in less time, ratcheting up the expectations in the months and years ahead. Here are what I consider the pros and cons of owning AAPL stock under this intense scrutiny.
