    Here's one of Warren Buffett's deepest investment regrets

    Amazon Inc. may be the one that got away from legendary investor Warren Buffett--at least for now. The Oracle of Omaha said Amazon's shares "always looked expensive," and that he underestimated the ecommerce and cloud-computing behemoth--which boasts a market value of $446 billion, second only to Apple Inc. at $781 billion--potential dominance. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the world's third richest man, behind Microsoft Corp. founder and Buffett chum Bill Gates and Spanish billionaire Amancio Orega, according to Bloomberg's index of the wealthiest people in the world. On Saturday, during Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s annual shareholder meeting, Buffett said he "didn't think [Bezos would] be where he is today when I looked at [Amazon]" years ago. Buffett told CNBC on Friday that Bezos's success has surprised him. "I've never seen a guy succeed in two businesses almost simultaneously that are really quite divergent in terms of customers and all the operations," he said, referring to the company's retail business and its cloud-computing operation. Shares of Amazon have climbed roughly 25% year to date, compared with 7.1% for the S&P 500 Index over the same period. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen 6.3%, while the Nasdaq Composite Index has enjoyed a 13.3% in 2017, so far. Amazon's performance has even outstripped the exchange-traded Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF , which is up 13.7% so far. As far as expenses go, Amazon is rich relative to the broad market, it has a price-to-earnings ratio, one popular measure of value, of 175 times, compared with a P/E of roughly 18 times for the S&P 500., according to FactSet.

    Why Buffett told his wife to buy index funds rather than Berkshire's stock

    Warren Buffett says owning an index fund is better than owning shares in his own company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. At least, that's the advice he is offering his wife, in the event of his death. Buffett is a champion of index funds, which track a benchmark like the S&P 500 index or the Dow Jones Industrial Average , and thinks that owning an index fund is less stressful than owning a single investment, like Berkshire. "The important thing is that she never worries about money the rest of her life," he said at Berkshire's annual shareholder meeting in Omaha, Neb., on Saturday. The 86-year-old Sage of Omaha is married to Astrid Menks, with whom he was married in 2006. Buffett's longtime partner Charlie Munger said he'd rather own Berkshire shares, for his part. So far this year, Berkshire's Class B shares, most commonly owned by investors, are up 2.2%, but the S&P 500 has returned 7.2%, while the Dow is up 6.3%, according to FactSet data. Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index boasts a year-to-date return of 13.3%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Buffett says Wells Fargo made one mistake that 'dwarfs' all others

    Prominent investor Warren Buffett said Wells Fargo's incentive system was the San Francisco bank's biggest error, which led to an embarrassing scandal that led to the resignation of former CEO John Stumpf and sullied the bank's image as a poster child for good banks. The mistake they made but "one one that dwarfs all...but you have to be very careful what you incentivize. You can't incentivize bad behavior," Buffett said at Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s annual shareholder meeting in Omaha, Neb. on Saturday. Last year, Wells Fargo paid $185 million to settle allegations, without admitting ore denying wrongdoing, related to "widespread illegal" sales-practice issues, where its employees created accounts without the knowledge of its customers--at times creating fake accounts--in order to meet sales goals. Wells Fargo, now run by CEO Tim Sloan, has lagged behind its banking peers following the scandal that has resulted in the clawback of pay from its employees. Buffett also said the bank didn't move swiftly enough when signs of the fake-account problem first surfaced: "It was bad enough having a bad system," he said. "But they didn't act." Wells Fargo is Buffett's largest investment. The bank's shares are trading flat year to date, compared with a gain over the same period of 2.5% in the exchange-traded Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF , which tracks the broad financial market. The S&P 500 index is up 7.2% so far in 2017, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 6.3% over the same period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
