Last week I stumbled across this excellent video about Graham which includes old clips from his investment classes as well as some of his former students (including Warren Buffett, Rob Brandes and Irving Kahn) giving interviews about the effect the legendary investor had on them:

There’s no doubt that Warren Buffett is ridiculously rich but if you made a few pips on the USD/JPY dip today and you’re feeling flush, then take a quick look at this tool that shows how much of a drop in the bucket your salary is compared to the $13.5 billion Uncle Warren made last year.
And if you’re admiring Messi’s magnificence today note that it took Buffett less than two days to earn Messi’s $64m paycheck last year.
“Long ago, Sir Isaac Newton gave us three laws of motion, which were the work of genius. But Sir Isaac’s talents didn’t extend to investing: He lost a bundle in the South Sea Bubble, explaining later, ‘I can calculate the movement of the stars, but not the madness of men.’ If he had not been traumatized by this loss, Sir Isaac might well have gone on to discover the Fourth Law of Motion: For investors as a whole, returns decrease as motion increases.” Warren Buffett

How Warren Buffett lost $1 billion in one stock http://t.co/SPAB4SsLRV

If you invest in the stock market you’re almost 100% certain to have heard of Warren Buffett. Indeed, you’ve probably read books about him, or you might have read his annual shareholder letter, or even been to the spectacle that is the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting.
Now’s your chance to watch an interesting documentary that offers an intimate look at the life of Warren Buffett. The documentary offers an eye opening view of how he runs the company (complete with a tour of his office), the annual shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, and a peak at his many eccentricities.
Of course the film also reviews how he made his money, how he operates, how he came to operate in the way he does, and how he thinks about his wealth which is in the tens of billions of dollars.
Small investors are in danger of getting screwed, thanks to big activists, their Twitter accounts and the business media that cover them, says Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners.
This summer, activists such as Carl Icahn, Dan Loeb and Bill Ackman have been hogging the financial headlines and brawling over stocks such as Dell, Apple, Sony, JCPenney and Herbalife, mostly to their own benefit.
Kass tells On the Money he’s concerned we’re headed back to the go-go days of 2006-07, when business-news outlets helped pump stocks and the media failed to provide a check on the market that small investors needed.
CNBC contributor Kass, who attended Warren Buffett’s recent gabfest to throw a few curveballs at Berkshire Hathaway, casts his net wide and says we’re all guilty.
He was particularly irked about the reporting surrounding Icahn’s Apple position, which helped push up the stock, and he was disappointed by outsize coverage of Omega Advisors’ 31,000-share Apple buy this quarter.
“My criticism is of the entire media business. The reason I point this out is because the small investor piles in when Apple is up 10 percent. It’s caveat emptor, but the poor lemmings pay top dollar.”
Kass went so far as to email CNBC’s “Halftime Report” host, Scott Wapner, who’s been in the thick of things, to complain about the coverage. >> Read More
POSCO’s (005940.KS) new chief executive said the steelmaker will shy away from expanding manufacturing capacity for the time being, and raise cash by selling non-core assets and by listing some affiliates – a marked break with the strategy set by his predecessor.
“I will take the bold step of shedding non-core businesses,” Kwon Oh-joon told an annual meeting of POSCO shareholders on his first day on the job.
“POSCO will not pursue fresh investments aimed at quantitative growth, and instead focus on downstream investments aiming at boosting value,” he said in a separate statement, noting that the global steel market is suffering from serious oversupply.
His predecessor, Chung Joon-yang, who led POSCO for five years, spearheaded investments and acquisitions that left the steel giant with high debt levels, leading to a series of rating cuts by credit rating agencies. >> Read More
A Record 1,645 Billionaires Made the 2014 List of the World’s Richest People with an Aggregate Net Worth of $6.4 Trillion, Up from $5.4 Trillion Last Year
Bill Gates Topped the List With the #1 Spot; Gates Has Been #1 for 15 of the last 20 Years
Bill Gates (#1) was back on top as the world’s richest person on Forbes’ 28th annual ranking of the world’s billionaires after a four-year hiatus; Gates has topped the list for 15 of the last 20 years. With a net worth of $76 billion, up from $67 billion in 2013, the technology guru moved up on the list by one slot this year. Gates beat out telecom mogul Carlos Slim Helu (#2), who had maintained the #1 spot for the past four consecutive years but lost $1 billion of his net worth, now valued at $72 billion. Spanish clothing retailer Amancio Ortega (best known for the Zara fashion chain) maintained his #3 spot from 2013, but increased his net worth $7 billion for a total of $64 billion, ahead of Warren Buffett (#4)with a net worth of $58.2 billion. American gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson (#8), increased his net worth by $11.5 billion, and made it back into the top ten for the first time since 2007. >> Read More
There’s nothing like getting a big bang for your buck, and no one knows that more than billionaire investor Warren Buffett.
The 83-year-old founder of Berkshire Hathaway, whose investments have consistently beaten the stock market over the past 50 years, shared a few tips in this year’s annual letter to shareholders, including comparing the stock market with sex.
Mr Buffett said new investors tend to buy shares when the markets are rising and optimism is high, only to get disillusioned when prices fall.
Quoting the late money manager Barton Biggs, whose attention to emerging markets in the 1980s marked him as one of the world’s first and foremost global investment strategists, Mr Buffett added: “A bull market is like sex. It feels best just before it ends.”
He advised investors to “keep things simple” by “accumulating shares over a long period, and never sell when the news is bad and stocks are well off their highs”.
