These Buffett-Inspired Funds Have Learned Their Lessons Well
Embracing the spirit of Buffett's teachings gives these funds an edge.
It's that time again: Investment geeks and Buffett disciples will soon descend on Omaha to soak up insights from the Oracle himself and his octogenarian sidekick, Charlie Munger. But for all the adulation that will flow this weekend, surprisingly few professional investors follow their trade's most successful practitioner's blueprint. Like Buffett's obsession with Cherry Coke, it's one of life's little mysteries.
But not all the pros shun Buffett's teachings. Last year at this time we highlighted seven funds from the tiny group that fully embodies his investment principles. They were Ariel Focus (ARFFX), Fairholme (FAIRX), FAM Value (FAMVX), Oak Value (OAKVX), LKCM Equity (LKEQX), Sequoia (SEQUX), and Weitz Partners Value (WPVLX).
