He says in the interview he is a chart guy so not sure why he and Bloomberg compare himself to Buffett.

"Buffett originally started out as a chart guy"

Haha, I think Buffett said that lasted till he was about 13 from what I recall from biographies.
This guy is 17.
He sounds ambitious.
Will probably do well in life.

And worse is that if this guy claims he is a follower of Buffett, he should know better than to look at charts.

I meant that Buffett originally studied technical analysis until he discovered Ben Graham.  I didn't think of Sanborn though... haha
