Once again I have been duped by the headlines: Click here for the "6 stocks Warren Buffett never Sold."  Well I clicked and found nothing about the 6 stocks in the text of the article. Then in the bottom it says: "Here are the six stocks Warren Buffett has never sold." I clicked that and it did not work. This is the last time I will waste my time on MSN when it calls my attention to read something further. Deceiving people with your tricks will cause you to loose your potential readers. You lost me MSN.

i still own the first 100 shares of exxon my grandfather bought me when i was born and have bought considerably more over the years. along with walmart and kraft and verizon and citicorp and gold bullion. i have collected the dividends for years and gotten the splits from them all ,except for the gold of course but i have'nt paid over $800 an ounce. i am not a trader but i am an investor and buy and hold and reinvest the dividends because like einstein said" their is nothing in the universe as powerful as compound interest"

I wonder if Buffett is for or against the keystone pipeline? After all he owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.  A pipeline would cut into all those profits from hauling crude oil out of North Dakota.

This 'kindly old gentleman' is THE reason that the Keystone Pipeline hasn't been built. He's making too much money running it in here on his trains,..and his pal 0bama approves of the scheme.

Buffett has a big hand in delaying the pipeline project in order to boost his railroad business.

Let's see. Buffett donates billions to Gates foundation. Gates foundation donates billions to vaccination program in foreign countries with foreign governments matching the "gift" several times over and they purchase the vaccine from GalaxoSmithKline and others that Buffett is heavily invested in. Humm??? And this is called "philanthropy"?  Yeah right!   And it's all done tax exempt. Me thinkest Buffett protestesth too loud about taxing the rich. Crooked bastard!

MSN wasn't trying to dupe you.  The article was just improperly structured.  The 6 stocks were accessible via the arrow (1 of 8) at the top of the article to the right of Warren Buffet's picture rather than via the non-working link at the bottom of the article.

He is an "entire" con man. The SEC will do nothing, period.

MTB's mortgage dep't never sold its mortgages they were kept in-house as they avoided the AIG and speculative stock losses with the bank's capital but its stock seems a little overpriced right now.....still pays a nice dividend though......MTB was solid throughout the banking crisis, and is an American company based (I think) in Rochester NY......I can see why Buffett held on to "empty

 bank"......

I guess I will have to agree with Fatty, SOME  jealous forum morons and losers..

Buffet is pretty good at what he did, along with getting lucky to some extent...

But it took about 50-60 years, of work, planning, researching and investing...

His friend and cohort Charlie Munger, worked fairly hard to get where they are at.

Obama and guys like him, weren't really responsible for any of it...

while those stocks are great if you bought them a long time ago but to buy them today has the same risk as several others . Personally I recently got on a long term stock for my granddaughter and enrolled in a DRIP , PSEC (prospect capital) is the stock and the impressive thing about it is it pays dividends every month and so far it's roughly 1% of the stock value which over the course of a year works out after compounding to around 14% APR which is more than pretty much any other investment . I'm thinking about throwing some of my playable IRA on it , just have to either throw some more money in the account or sell something . 

There will be a lot of IPO's coming out this year and as always some have a lot of potential of going wild , I have one in particular in mind but I think I will keep that one under my hat for now . Just gotta remember to have some cash on hand at the end of summer .

HeII....... He probably forgot he had them.

Sometimes it's not about being savvy. Ever heard of being lucky? Buffet is wealthy enough to sway the stock market all by himself just by buying and selling certain stocks. Where is the business mind in all this?

He's probably reading this story right now and saying "What the heII"

Most people would do well to buy big blues and hold while reinvesting earning over the period of investment.... After 15 or 20 years you would find a fine pot of $$$$$.
