Re: Warren Buffet v. Bogleheads

Warren Buffett drops out random sound bites, and I've never been able to stitch them together into a coherent investment strategy. "Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful" does sound like words of wisdom; so does "buy low, sell high." But, in th...

as an example most of Vanguard Target funds are only four asset classes but they cover almost the entire stock and bond markets.
