Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);11/3/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 44, p26
The author commends American investor Warren Buffet for laying his reasons for optimism towards the stock market in an October 17, 2009 opinion piece for "The New York Times." He notes that Buffet began with his thoughts on investor sentiment. The author also claims that Buffett did more than offer advice given the fact that the investor took his unabashed greed to the stock market, bought $3 billion in General Electric Co. preferred shares and a $5 billion in preferred shares of Goldman Sachs Group.
