Abstract. The paper offers a new explanation of the Warren Buffett’s phenomenon. This explanation is complimentary to the suggestion expressed by the adopters of the value investing approach who derive Buffett’s success from a winning investment strategy, and it rejects the idea of a pure luck, which the advocates of the efficient market hypothesis insist upon. 

Keywords: Warren Baffett, investment, value investing, efficient market hypothesis, excess market returns
