CNBC news anchor Becky Quick interviews Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett in light of the recent stock market gyrations and movements. Warren Buffett views stocks as small pieces of business enterprises. He tends to buy large equity stakes of public enterprises with low relative market valuation that manifests in the form of low P/B and P/E ratios (below 1.2x and 9x respectively).

It would be idiotic to just look at the share price when the investor places his or her equity stakes in public companies. Although some investors and fund managers emphasize a healthy balance between stock and bond portfolio allocation, Buffett focuses on the higher 12% annual long-term average return on stocks in contrast to a meager 3%-4% counterpart for bonds. Given the recent oil price surge, Dodd-Frank rollback, and non-nuclear peace summit between North Korea and America, the current stock and bond fundamental recalibration offers lucrative investment opportunities.

Warren Buffett shares his principles for achieving success in life. First, we should keep a long-term perspective to invest in our own education and social integration for greater wealth, happiness, and personal fulfillment. Second, we remain humble enough to learn new tricks, concepts, and virtues to enrich our own wisdom. Third, we invest in bluechip stocks with extra cash and no debt to earn compound interest over time. These stocks include small profitable cash cows with low relative market valuation that invest conservatively in both capital investment and balance sheet expansion. In fact, we must learn to live within or even below our means for sound and sustainable wealth creation. We can be much better off owning a small number of well-made and reliable possessions than a large number of possessions that we seldom use in practice. We should consciously invest time and energy in each part of our lives with minimal destructive spending urges.
