Warren Buffett Uses His Annual Letter to Warn About Wall Street and Recount Berkshire’s Successes

“She is sensible—very sensible—instinctively knowing that pundits should always be ignored,” Mr. Buffett wrote about Bertie. “After all, if she could reliably predict tomorrow’s winners, would she freely share her valuable insights and thereby increase competitive buying? That would be like finding gold and then handing a map to the neighbors showing its location.”
