Buffett and Google: A Match Made in Tech Heaven? (Fool TV)

Warren Buffett may not favor tech companies, but he sure does love businesses with wide moats. For that reason, Fool analyst Eric Bleeker thinks he'd do well to consider an investment in Google (Nasdaq: GOOG  ) .

The company's monopoly on search data gives it a stranglehold on the search market, leaving competitors like Microsoft gasping for air. What's more, Bleeker believes that -- like the recent Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A  ) (NYSE: BRK-B  ) investment BYD -- Google's leadership has the stuff it takes to win over the long term. Find out what might happen if the world's greatest value investor got bitten by Google's tech bug.

    Hopefully this isn't a double post...

    Anyway, that's supposed to say BYD (the Chinese auto/battery company). Since Boyd's ticker is BYD, it was accidentally changed in the editing process. Should have that fixed in the morning.

    Best,

    Hey Dayton,

    That's supposed to say BYD (Chinese company that makes advanced batteries/autos). BYD is Boyd's ticker, so there was some confusion on the editing side. Should be fixed up tomorrow morning.

    Thanks,
