With his bottom-up strategy and countless hours of research into companies, it looks like he’s on his way to win the bet.

Don’t put too much thought into whether or not to get a passive or active index investments. The long game in the long run is to make as much as you can either way. You need to see that even slow passive returns aren’t exempt to the market downfall.

The last tip Warren gave was that nobody ever knows what mutual funds will prosper in the future. Even the people who invest in S&P 500 and make a great return, if they went with someone like AMCAP or Capital Group, they would have made more.
