Buffett on Buying Distressed Assets

It has been said many times and there are many many articles and posts about buying undervalued assets. I recently saw a YouTube video from Buffett himself. In this video interview with Charlie Rose, Buffett reiterates that distressed assets are a great investments.  He talks about Mortgage-Backed Securities and the government bailout. He says if you buy distressed assets at distressed prices, you are sure to make money. He also mentions about his continued belief in the US economy over time. Finally he closes with his classic quote: “You want to be greedy when others are fearful, you want to be fearful when others are greedy.”

All I can say is; easier said than done. Otherwise, there won’t be only one Buffett.

    yeah, I had missed it too, until yesterday. One aspect that I am fan about Buffett is the confidence and calmness that he oozes.

    Best Wishes,

    Great find. I’ve never seen this interview before but as Buffett states, distressed opportunities are fantastic.

    Thankfully the majority of people consider distressed companies as speculation.
