The Buffett Philosophy

Warren Buffett is a proponent of value investing, which looks to find stocks that are undervalued compared to their intrinsic value. Financial metrics like price/book (P/B), price/earnings (P/E), return on equity (ROE) and dividend yield carry the most weight on the Buffett scales. In addition, he seeks out companies that have what he calls "economic moats" - high barriers to entry for a competitor who may wish to invade the market and erode profit margins.
