Warren Buffett's Performance vs. S&P 500 in 2012

January 03, 2013 | About:

Legendary Investor Warren Buffett's Berkshire returns beat the S&P 500 in 2012. In this video, Bloomberg analyzes Berkshire's performance vs. the S&P 500 in 2012. Buffett was able to beat the S&P 500 even without any big elephant acquisitions. His $88 billion dollar of stock portfolio was the key driver of Berkshire's performance. Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), American Express (NYSE:AXP) and Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) were the keys stocks which drove the performance. Performance was also driven by some good stock picks by Buffett's new hires Todd Combs and Ted Weschler.
