Warren Buffett

No thats not Warren Buffett but why not let him do the heavy lifting for you?  I blog, write and speak about investing all the time.  One common theme is that very few money managers can beat the S&P 500 with any consistency so why try?  Buy the S&P via an ETF or no load mutual fund and forget it, you will end up beating 91% of investors and save a fortune on fees
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know the name Warren Buffett who is one of the rare individuals / institutions that have beaten the S&P 500 with some consistency. If you like him, and its hard not too, you are in luck, you can invest side by side with Warren Buffett by owning his companies shares (Berkshire Hathaway) which is listed at the NYSE as brk-b
Interestingly, Buffett obviously has a vested interest in his companies shares but for his personal account, he buys US treasuries!
