    Warren Buffett tells CNBC he has no regrets about any of the decisions he made over the weekend one year ago when the financial crisis was at its worst.  In a taped interview with Squawk Box's Becky Quick airing tonight, Buffett says he "looked hard" at a telephoned offer that Friday night to buy AIG's property casualty operation for around $25 billion, but decided against it.  He also recalls that he was approached to do a reinsurance deal that might have helped clear the way for a Barclay's rescue of Lehman, but it didn't come together.

    I was discussing the financial collapse with Clint Goodrich...I told him that Warren Buffett said, "When the tide goes out, you see who's been swimming naked." Goodrich rolled his eyes. Turns out, he thinks Buffett isn't much of an oracle. What?? Isn't that like saying Tiger Woods isn't much of a golfer??

    Shares of Chinese electric-car maker BYD rallied 8 percent in Hong Kong trading today (Monday), finishing at an all-time closing of HK$48.60.  The buying was apparently sparked by news wire headlines quoting BYD's chairman as saying Warren Buffett "wants" or "intends" to raise Berkshire Hathaway's 10 percent stake in the company.  That interest, however, may not be new and doesn't necessarily mean Buffett will be able to buy more shares from BYD.
