Warren Buffett has had one of the longest and most successful investment careers of all time. While he's considered the "world's greatest value investor," there's another side to Buffett that is not very well known. Although Buffett has gained recognition for his value investing approach to the markets, the fact is that nobodyover the past fifty yearshas traded and invested with a more diverse group of strategies than Buffett.
Given the fact that Buffett's investment career has spanned five decades and multiple styles and disciplines, is it possible to Trade Like Warren Buffett? It's impossible to trade exactly like Warren Buffett, but with author James Altucher as your guide, you'll come close.
Trade Like Warren Buffett challenges the current coverage of this great investor by including details of all of Buffett's investing and trading methods, including mean reversion, commodities, bonds, arbitrage, market timing, funds, as well as Graham-Dodd. In addition to the value investing approach, this book discusses other, lesser-known trading strategies and techniques that have helped to make Buffett the greatest investor in history. To augment the discussion of each strategy, Trade Like Warren Buffett also includes interviews with leading financial professionals, who reveal in detail how they've successfully used the same techniques.
Altucher skillfully details Buffett's career and uncovers the paths that led to his success. You'll have a front row seat to the best that Buffett has to offer, including:
- The Early Years: Buffett's hedge fund years, when he built his fortune from essentially nothing to about $25 million
- The Middle Years: During the '70s and '80s, Buffett made the full transition from successful hedge fund manager to operator, asset allocator, and insurance company magnate
- The Later Years: During the '90s and '00s, there was a flight to safety from the dot-com bubble as well as a diversification into bonds, silver, fixed-income arbitrage, and ultimately, foreign currencies
