It’s pretty interesting to see how fast Buffet recoverd from the “Dot-com bust“. He wasn’t loaded up on a lot of internet companies. After the crash he even said “I told ya so” to analysts and other investors who had criticized him for not “investing” in some of the dotcom stocks.

It took him almost 4 years to recover from the 2008-09 crash. But he still has beaten the S&P since then. Truly one of the best investors ever.
