Let's make a game. Who predicted IBM as Buffett's last pick?


I'll be damned if anybody predicted that Buffett would put $10B in IBM!! (Unless his name is Dave Sokol)

Sorry "peter_burke_ceo" but this "bump" is regarding an interesting take on why Buffett should take a look at specific European companies NOW!

The Cheuvreux analysts specifically recommended ABB (ABB), headquartered in Switzerland; Unilever (UL), headquartered in the UK and the Netherlands (among their US-owned products are Hellmann’s, Wish-Bone, Ragu, Bertolli, Ben & Jerry’s, Breyers, Popsicle, Lipton, Slim Fast, Dove, and Vaseline); Zurich Financial Services (ZFSVY.PK) also in Switzerland; AXA (AXAHY.PK) in France; H&M (Hennes & Mauritz – HNNMY.PK) from Sweden, and Volkswagen (VLKAY.PK) and Daimler (DDAIF.PK) both in Germany. (Daimler is the manufacturer of a number of marques, including Mercedes Benz and that all-American 18-wheeler, Freightliner.)

Again, sorry "peter_burke_ceo"

buying a Euro based company with a great Global business is an eminently rational thing to do right now.

I second your opinion;

for what its worth I am posting the follow up  link  on the "magnificent 7 euro based stocks" (initial link from BargainValueHunter). Just to throw some more euro names in the hat:

Some like BP and Zurich financial perhaps seem interesting to me but nothing irresistible yet.  I guess  I am getting greedy.
