Stocks have been on the proverbial "roller coaster ride" the last several days, and that means increased nervousness for many investors. A series of triple-digit Dow moves, especially the losses, can make it tough to sleep at night.
But despite the turmoil, the angst, the worries for some, I have a strong feeling Warren Buffett is sleeping just fine. He's not looking at the day-to-day movements of the Wall Street indexes. He's looking for long-term investments in solid companies selling at a discount, as he always does.
The previous Watching Warren Buffett post this week, Buffett Basics for Troubled Times, touched on some of the timeless Buffett strategies detailed in a U.S. News and World Reports cover story. It's been a popular post, so I asked CNBC's Managing Editor Tyler Mathisen to videotape a short conversation with Buffett-watcher Alex Markels, a senior writer for the magazine and author of How to Make Money the Buffett Way.
