Yeah, according to The Daily Crux, this headline is a true one…Gartman did refer to Buffett as “an idiot” for allowing Berkshire’s stock to drop 45%.
The Gart-Man has since rescinded the statement – but The Crux reports that to Gartman’s credit, he’s actively shorting Berkshire Hathaway.
I’ve had a trial subscription to Gartman’s Letter before, and thoroughly enjoyed it…though the price tag was too much for me to stomach ($500/mo or something like that).
Fan of Gartman? Check out his recent thoughts on China – a great read.
