    What made Warren Buffett successful?

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    What made Warren Buffett successful?
    Warren Buffett is undoubtedly the most successful investor on this planet. And thus most investors try to replicate his investing style. Management quality, business moat, and balance sheet strength are some of the factors he paid utmost attention to while investing. However, this is not the real reason behind his investing success. His understanding of one very important factor was critical in the fortune that he made. Read on to find out what this factor is and how this made him a billionaire. (The Daily Crux)

    Jim Grant slams 'Central Planning' Fed
    Jim Grant of Wall Street believes that the loose monetary policies of central banks around the world are not likely to end well. Further, he does not trust the theoretical models of central banks and the irrational exuberance that financial markets are displaying now. Read on to find out more about Grant's views on the US Fed and its thinking on monetary policies. (Zero Hedge)

    Power of compounding: A different perspective
    The article talks about what differentiates Buffett from everyone else. For many years, he has been giving a very easy piece of advice to all aspiring investors. But one that may be difficult to follow or one that all aspirers may not follow! But for gaining knowledge, which is essential in the world of investing, there is not short cut, no easy way out. Discipline and persistence are a must for all investors, in terms of gathering information. To do so, one needs to spend a lot of time reading. And as the author point out, if one can manage to do so, the compounding effects will benefit over the long term. (Guru Focus)

    Rule of 100: An investing rule everyone must avoid
    As investors, most of us have been familiar with the 'rule of 100' that gives investors a basic idea of risk analysis based on their age. Many financial planners have used this to convince senior people to have a more aggressive allocation than they feel comfortable with. However, as the author explains, when it comes to personal risk analysis, one should avoid blanket approach as it can lead to catastrophic consequences. Read on to understand the risks associated with such investment approaches and avoid falling victim to them. (CNN Money)

    The top contrarian bets for 2014
    As investors gear up for new investment ideas for 2014, all eyes are on global fund managers and their top contrarian bets for the new year. Believe it or not but gold and emerging market equities feature high on the priority list of several contrarian fund managers. And their reasons for favouring these asset classes range from valuation gaps to change in fundamentals. The uncertain economic environment does make it extremely risky for those seeking undervalued assets. However, as per Dailycrux and Bloomberg, several contrarian fund managers see plenty of opportunities. Read on to find out what else features on their list. (The Daily Crux)
