What Investors Need to Know: Warren Buffett, Facebook, and Costco

The following video is from Wednesday's Market Foolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Joe Magyer and Bryan Hinmon, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In today's edition, the guys discuss Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-A  ) (NYSE: BRK-B  )  big share buyback that drove share prices up, and why they think the stock is still a buy. Also, Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) has joined the Nasdaq 100, and we hear why joining an index isn't automatically a good thing for a company. Costco (NASDAQ: COST  ) had another fantastic quarter, and we hear how that may already be priced into the company's fairly pricey multiple, which is why it wasn't a needle-mover for shares.

Costco Wholesale's low prices haven't just benefited customers — shareholders have walloped the market, returning 11,000% over the past two decades. However, with prices near all-time highs, is the ride over for Costco investors? To answer that, we've compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether Costco is a buy right now, and why.

    Warren Buffett is no Oracle! He is a lying liar, a War Profiteer who should be brought up on charges of Treason...along with his cohort in crime Jack Welch of General Electric. The only thing Buffett foresaw was his own demise when he said "it takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it." January 16, 2013.
