A Humorous and Enlightening look at how companies treat their investors when the welcome mat is out
Once a year, the managers of public companies have to fling open the doors and let the owners in whether they want to or not. A Weekend with Warren Buffett is an entertaining and insightful look at these companies during this brief period when managers and stockholders convene.
Financial writer Randy Capuche takes the reader from Fayetteville, Arkansas, where 15,000 Walmart employees and shareholders gather at dawn for a meeting that is a strange brew of tailgate party, political convention, and old time revival meeting, to Philadelphia, where he witnesses the famous meeting which led to Michael Eisner stepping down as chairman and EIO of Disney. Cepuch observes Sandy Weills last meeting for Citigroup at New York Citys Carnegie hall, and also describes what its like to be perhaps the only person among thousands of Starbucks shareholders who isnt wired on caffeine. Cepuchs odyssey is inspired by berkshire Hathaways legendary meetings held each May in Omaha, where Warren Buffett speaks candidly about life and business, offering practical investment advice and making sure that shareholders feel like partners.
Chronicling the shareholder meetings of more than twenty companies A weekend with Warren Buffett blends practical advice with amusing anecdotes. Its the perfect inspiration for all shareholders to start learning more about their investments.
