Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl

Think the stock market is a man's domain? Think again. This video is from the recent Women's Investing Conference held at The Motley Fool headquarters in Alexandria, Va., which gathered women investors from all ages and walks of life to discuss how individual investors can get an edge on Wall Street and invest better.

In this segment, best-selling author LouAnn Lofton discusses the formative years that gave her a passion for investing and shines some light on a number of research studies highlighting the differences between how men and women invest. Because women consistently take less risk, trade less frequently, and invest with a longer time horizon than men do, women investors often outperform their male counterparts, who are more prone to temperamental investing mistakes. It was these studies that led her to write her best-selling book, "Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: and Why You Should, Too."

    Dear Alison, Yeah, I miss MY Dad, too ! He also invested like a girl, and I have him to thank for the Warren Buffet-like example he set for me, and my 3 sisters, 1 brother. I bought BRK-B for our 2 kids, in honor of my Dad, and out of regard for Warren ! Went to to the BRK Annual Mtg, too. Was heartened to see how many young people were there. We'll all be just fine !!!
