Default Today is the greatest day of the year (Buffett's letter released)

Warren released his annual letter to Berkshire shareholders today, making this the greatest day of the year.

And as if that wasn't enough, Eddie Lampert followed suit by delivering his letter to Sears shareholders.

Let's see what two of the geniuses of our time have to say about whatever it is they're talking about....

Buffett's letter was a nice read as always. He talked about his successor - said that he has 3 people picked out who can run the businesses that BRK owns, but still needs to find somebody to control the investments. It would be Lou Simpson, but Lou is only 7 years younger that Warren, and he needs somebody much younger who could hold the position for many years.

Eddie's letter was short and to the point, lacking the jokes and anecdotes that Waren includes. He repeated his complaints about the pension "insurance" he's forced to participate in, and added some complaints about the culture of litigation in America. He wants to see a better "loser pays" system that would discourage some of the frivelous lawsuits against big companies, of which Sears sees several a day.

tell us something that you have accomplished. what stocks did you buy? did you make money? what stocks are you planning to buy? and why? I can sit and here and tell everybody 100 different ways of how smart a great investor is and that doesn't excite our audience. tell us something that you can't get off of a website.
