Who wouldn’t want to invest like Warren Buffett?
His investments have long beaten the performance of the S&P 500. Plenty of mutual fund and hedge fund managers have tried to do the same. But most fail. That’s why mere mortals should stick to low-cost index funds.
Some people, however, enjoy the added risk of trying to beat the market. If you’re one of them, let me offer a suggestion: There is a simple method with a market-beating record. It doesn’t win every year or even every decade. But its long-term record has beaten the U.S. market index. It takes about ten minutes a year, combining two investment styles from Warren Buffett’s biggest mentors.
