Hurricane Sandy: Assessing the Impact on Your Investments

In today's edition of MarketFoolery, Chris Hill and our Motley Fool analysts take a practical look at Hurricane Sandy's impact for investors. 

Joe Magyer thinks some insurers could stand to lose out with big claims flying in, but he also believes the praise heaped on Home Depot (NYSE: HD  ) has been exaggerated. 

James Early agrees with Joe's assessment of insurers, and Ron Gross takes a long-term perspective by reminding investors that these things happen and suggests investors don't try to "play" the hurricane in their portfolios and stick to their knitting instead. If anything, use it as a buying opportunity for great companies that the Sreet unnecessarily knocks down.

One such company is Berkshire Hathaway. You can learn more about the company today in our premium research report. Inside you'll receive ongoing updates as key news hits, as well as reasons to both buy and sell the stock. Claim a copy by clicking here now.
