David Flood from elementaryvalue.com and Jan Svenda https://jansvenda.com/ took the time to check 7000 of small, obscure stocks. That´s exactly what I think a young Warren Buffett would do, if he had to start again from 0.
Lucky for you, they tell us what they found in this search of years, just wait to hear this story.
In the interview, Adam Smith asked Warren about the advice that he would give to a younger Warren Buffett if he entered the markets today. This is what Warren replied:
Adam Smith: If a younger Warren Buffett were coming into the investment field today, what areas would you tell him to point himself in?
Warren Buffett: Well, if he were doing – if he were coming in and working with small sums of capital I’d tell him to do exactly what I did 40-odd years ago, which is to learn about every company in the United States that has publicly traded securities and that bank of knowledge will do him or her terrific good over time.
Smith: But there’s 27,000 public companies.
Buffett: Well, start with the A’s.
