Fake Multibaggers!

“We can pick multibaggers. Subscribe to our services and get MULTIBAGGERS” – Tom, Dick & Harry Looking at the current scenario, there seems to be a slot machine game being played on the bourses. Any Tom, Dick or Harry in some corner of the country thinks he is skilled enough to spot multibaggers! Since all the stocks are moving up, there are high chances that all the recommendations will work. This means that ‘Luck’ is predominant in stock picking.

And without one eye on these BHAGs, you end up with a mid-sized flat in a somewhat good locality, a half-decent car, your kids in an average school and perennially compromising your dreams in favour of a running cash flow. But what, if I tell you that you don’t need to live like this? That the key to unlock your goals is sheer common-sense? […]

Yes! Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway has inked a deal to buy-out H. J. Heinz, along with 3G Capital. Is it just his love for the ketchup, or does it make absolute business sense too? Does it fit into his typical style of investing? What is his investing style, by the way?
