Buffett, a cheerleader for America, takes his checkbook abroad

Financial investor Warren Buffett is acknowledged during an announcement ceremony at Northwestern University in EvanstonBy Luciana Lopez and Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Warren Buffett, in his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway Inc shareholders last year, called America "the mother lode of opportunity." This year, his 50th at Berkshire's helm, the world's third-richest person could write something quite different. When Buffett releases this year's letter on Saturday, he may point to opportunities outside of the United States, after he recently decided to buy a German motorcycle accessories retailer and said he may shop more in that country. In his letter, eagerly awaited on Wall Street for Buffett's candid thoughts on investing, business and life, the 84-year-old Buffett may detail his vision for Berkshire in the decades to come, including after he is gone. "Warren Buffett recognizes that global investing is going to be an important part of the future," said Michael Yoshikami, chief executive of Destination Wealth Management in Walnut Creek, California and a longtime Berkshire shareholder.


"I was worried that I wouldn't be able to qualify for a loan. I spoke with Bill and they told me to apply on their site. The next day they not only qualified me but had me locked into a great rate."
