The stock market has been a mixed bag for investors these past few weeks. The S&P 500 has risen roughly 6% since June, however a lot of the high-flying growth stocks have been beaten down. This indicates a shift in investor preference to stable blue-chip stocks. One such stock I believ
Warren Buffett became one of the world’s most successful investors by buying shares in underappreciated companies.
