What got you talking last week

Last week’s most popular story on Twitter was about Warren Buffet’s latest investment moves.

Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway bought 20.92 million shares in gold miner Barrick during the June quarter at a cost of $US563.6m ($786m). Analysts reckon a stampede of retail investors will follow him into gold shares.

Speaking of gold, another popular story was our latest edition of Money Talks. We spoke with Barclay Pearce head of trading Trent Primmer, who believes there are still opportunities in the small cap gold sector.
