  5. 5. Warren Buffett’s Investing Questions <ul><li>Before Warren Buffett invests a dime, he asks: </li></ul><ul><li>Is the company in an industry with good economics? That is, is it not in an industry competing on price?    </li></ul><ul><li>Does the company have a consumer monopoly or brand name that commands loyalty?    </li></ul><ul><li>Can anyone with an abundance of resources compete successfully with the company?    </li></ul><ul><li>Are the earnings on an upward trend with good and consistent profit margins?    </li></ul><ul><li>Is the debt-to-equity ratio low, or is the earnings-to-debt ratio high? Can the company repay debt even in years when earnings are lower than average?    </li></ul><ul><li>Does the company have high and consistent returns on invested capital?    </li></ul><ul><li>Does the company retain earnings for growth?    </li></ul><ul><li>Does the business have high maintenance cost of operations, high capital expenditure or investment cash outflow? (If so, that’s not good.)    </li></ul><ul><li>Does the company reinvest earnings in good business opportunities? Does management have a good track record of profiting from these investments?    </li></ul><ul><li>Is the company free to adjust prices for inflation? </li></ul><ul><li>In short, he makes companies jump through a lot of hoops before he considers putting them in his portfolio. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Warren Buffett’s Investment Strategy & The Economic Downturn <ul><li>First, he knows that nobody can accurately or consistently predict something as big, diverse and dynamic as the global economy.    </li></ul><ul><li>Secondly, he knows that even if you somehow knew what was going to happen in the economy, you still wouldn’t necessarily know what is about to happen in the stock market. Perversely, stocks sometimes fall during good times. They often rally during bad times.    </li></ul><ul><li>Thirdly, Buffett knows that the stock market is a discounting mechanism. It takes the news and reflects it into stock prices immediately. Who in their right mind would sell their stocks today because he realizes the economy is slowing down? We’ve known that for months now. </li></ul>
