Every year, Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholders meeting is held in Omaha, Nebraska, which is considered the Mecca of the investing world. Most people think New York City or London holds this title, but Omaha has one thing they don’t…Warren Buffett.

If we were on a boat experiencing these ups and downs, we’d all be seasick!
Last month we passed the 10 year anniversary of the Financial Crisis […]
