Warren Buffett's picks drive the markets. In fact, his comments drive the markets. Some have debated that following the Sage of Omaha is getting in too late, but that hasn't proven to be the case lately. Even if it ever was, there is a new twist here that could enable more investors to get in early and win big. So what's Buffett up to now? There's no secret that the legend is extremely bullish on Canada and real estate, and has made a series of massive moves in these sectors recently. Now, so far direct investment in the real estate industry in Canada has been limited, but not for long. Connecting the dots and strategy moves to build up markets and momentum before moving into cash in on guaranteed value and returns isn't that difficult when you track Buffett's plays over the last 5 years. Looking at the U.S. residential and commercial real estate turnaround, a huge portion of it can be directly linked back to Buffett's media appearances and buy signals far before he actually put his money on the line with his latest real estate investments. This suggests that Canadian investors could get way ahead of the game with a few savvy commercial real estate investments in Alberta today. Of course no investor needs to blindly follow any guru, nor should they in order to find security and appealing returns on their investments. Fortunately all of the data, trends, and cycles line up to indicate this as the right time to invest in commercial real estate. Warren Buffett's foray into these sectors will only make current and future returns better and protections bullet proof.
