Mutual Funds Weekly: For this investor, lunch with Warren Buffett was much more than a meal

Don’t miss these top money and investing features:

Famed investor Warren Buffett auctions off a lunch with himself for charity every year; most recently the winning bidder paid just over $3 million. But it’s really more than just a lunch. Ten years ago, investor Guy Spier and a friend won this unique opportunity, and the lessons about investing and life that Spier learned from Buffett that day have stuck with him.

In this week’s digest, Spier shares some of Buffett’s wisdom, advice that has helped him manage money for himself and his clients, and just might help you as well. Then, check out other lessons on the importance of being disciplined, as an investor and a person, with money and life decisions you make.

Plus, see why companies that experts have deemed great are not necessarily good stocks, and find out where to get fat yields for your income needs.
