Right time to buy stocks -Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett Says Now Is the Right Time to Buy U.S. Equities By Alan Purkiss Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Warren Buffett said he's buying U.S. stocks and, if prices stay attractive, his personal investments, as distinct from his stake in Berkshire Hathaway Inc., will soon be wholly in American equities. Writing in the New York Times, he said he's following the principle: be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Exaggerated concern about the long-term prosperity of the many sound U.S. companies is foolish, and most will probably be setting profit records in years to come, Buffett said. While short-term stock-market movements can't be foretold, the likelihood is that the market will recover before the economy or general investor sentiment do so, and ``if you wait for the robins, spring will be over,'' he said. The above is an extract of an article posted in 'Diary of A Singaporean Mind'. I agree that our stocks are very cheap. But some measures must be taken to stop short selling or the stocks can get even cheaper by the days.
