Purportedly, the world’s wealthiest investors are waiting for stocks to drop further before buying again. How can I verify this online for Warren Buffett and his Berkshire Hathaway? Any IRS documents? I want to know if he parked more cash than usual.
As @DumbCoder coder suggested, filed annual reports is the only real public information you have, but this is at a point in time, and may be arbitrarily abnormal; for tax reasons.
You also have public statements, like the one you saw. These are again at a point in time, and there may be ulterior motives for these — both from Warren Buffett and the news reporter. So biases will exist.
The information you are wanting is probably needed on a daily or weekly basis, since you want to engage with the market as quickly as Berkshire Hathaway do.
This just isn't available.
according to a poll by UBS Global Wealth Management.
Hello, I'm Warren Buffett and some UBS GWM asked ME, in poll, if I think that it's good time to invest or to wait. Because I want to make money I will say to them that I'll wait while I invest so whoever listens to them will buy from me.
And any other combination of possible answers.
