  • 'Rat Poison Squared.' Warren Buffett Really Doesn't Like Bitcoin

Buffett was forthright when he said that the scandal-plagued bank had committed the "cardinal sin" of incentivising employees into a "kind of insane conduct" but continued to believe that the bank was not "inferior", as an investment or morally, to its main rivals.

It is a better idea than spending that money on other companies which have the disadvantage of not being Apple, he added.

Berkshire first invested in Wells Fargo almost three decades ago and is now the bank's biggest holder with a almost 10% stake valued at around $25 billion. The pace of innovation, he said, is more important in the long run.

Rewind a few months, and Buffett was declaring that cryptocurrencies in general "will come to a bad ending". That means the value of cryptocurrencies is determined exclusively by what someone is willing to pay for it.

And then: "Saying you like "moats" is just a nice way of saying you like oligopolies". "It's like somebody else is trading turds and you decide you can't be left out".
