Warren Buffett: Buy American Stocks

In a 10/17/08 article in The New York Times, famed investor Warren Buffett writes that he is buying U.S. stocks and recommends others do so too.  Here are some of his main points:

  • Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.
  • The stock market will move higher well before either sentiment or the economy turns up.
  • Bad news is an investor's best friend.  It lets you buy a slice of America's future at a marked-down price.
  • Cash equivalents are a terrible long-term asset.
  • Equities will almost certainly outperform cash over the next decade, probably by a substantial degree.
