Traders, what do you think?
"Buffett is smarter than you, he’s richer than you and he’s a mean SOB,” exclaims Jeff Macke, "and I say that with admiration."
I like that Buffett is finding opportunities in GE as well as Goldman and Wells Fargo . I think that takes the market higher, adds Joe Terranova.
I don’t think you can equate Wells Fargo which he bought for valuations to Goldman and GE which were bought under completely different circumstances, counters Guy Adami.
It suggests to me a bailout will get done, adds Pete Najarian. I think it benefits the regional banks.
What do you think? We want to know!
