  • Business Week magazine cover: Hold for Mr. Buffett Please

    Warren Buffett can be a great boss, hands-off and complimentary, with plenty of great advice if you want or need it.  But it really helps if you're making money for him.  Otherwise, writes Alice Schroeder in the new Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine, "the famously passive investor can swing into action to protect his investment."

  • Alice Schroeder's authorized biography of Warren Buffett is now available in a trade paperback edition.  In an "updated and condensed" version of The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, Schroeder adds a new 31-page chapter covering events after the hardcover's publication last year.  She candidly describes how Buffett made a "series of characteristic brilliant moves interspersed with some surprising errors" as the financial crisis unfolded. With thanks to Bantam and Random House, here is an excerpt from Schroeder's new material.

  • Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway was doing more selling than buying of stocks during the second quarter, but there is one new holding: New Jersey-based medical technology company Becton Dickinson.  Berkshire also added to its stake in Johnson & Johnson, although the holdings are still well below where they were before Buffett sold over 33 million shares last fall.
