Buffett Annual Letter Highlights Heinz Deal, Investing Advice

Buffett's letter highlights a strategy used to acquire Heinz as well as opportunities for more investment in energy. Buffett also says Berkshire increased its stake in four blue chip names: American Express, Coca-Cola, IBM and Wells Fargo. Buffett says those investments are a way for Berkshire to increase returns without having to own the companies outright. As for areas of caution, Buffett says over the next decade bad news about public pensions will be front and center. TheStreet's Ruben Ramirez has details from New York.
