Buffett has bargain hunting in mind when he looks for new stocks. Buffett is smart about his money. Buffett usually follows the opposite trend when he buys stock and this implies he doesn’t do what everybody else is doing.
He doesn’t choose risky stock at all, as he maintains his sound judgment. Berkshire’s portfolio has not necessarily performed well this year, however. Value investing pretty much involves finding a stock that is doing well, not buying the super-expensive stocks, and making sure you can afford what you buy. Stocks with a B+ rating are what is recommended in the investing field. Buffett is always careful with the stocks he chooses; besides the fact that occasionally he can be wrong. Companies with positive earnings are a solid option when choosing stock. Earnings must be higher in the present rather than 5 years ago.
