Has Warren Buffett signalled the bottom of the market?

News that Warren Buffett has invested $5 billion in troubled US investment house Goldman Sachs has made many investors sit up and think again about the investment banking sector. Is this the bottom of the market? Has Buffett timed his investment to perfection? Or is he just trying to catch a falling knife?

Warren Buffett is a man who does his own thing, often against the trends within the investment community, and he has been proved right a lot more times than he has wrong. His $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs is being seen by many as a sign that the markets may be turning, that the US led bailout will finally go through and the worst may be over. But does Buffett always get it right?

While Buffett is not a man who courts publicity it must be noted that as well as some high profile successes he has also experienced doom and gloom in his investment career (although not many of his investments have gone wrong to be fair!). He is a value investor, he does not chase trends and prefers to pick up stocks which look fundamentally cheap and offer value going forward.

The fact that Goldman Sachs is on his radar, at a time when everyone is avoiding investment houses like the plague, is a very positive sign for the future.
