Over his 54-year tenure as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett has delivered annualized returns of 20.5% for investors as of mid-2019, more than twice the pace of the S&P 500 over the same period. And he's done it without applying any extraordinarily complex methods.

Ian Poulter opened the door of his house in Lake Nona 10 days ago and ushered me into his front room. It is not like many other front rooms, mainly because there are a dozen Ferraris sitting in it. And 65 golf bags from the Major championships, Ryder Cups and leading tournaments he has played. And letters on the wall from Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. The Ferraris are his passion. They are also a symbol of quite how far he has come since he was a kid growing up in a struggling area of Stevenage, running a clothes stall in the market to fund his golf.

The creation of a new parkway rail station near Swansea is gathering political momentum. But where should it be built? What are the problems it is addressing? And would there be losers as well as winners? And just how will we all be commuting and getting around in the future? Secretary of State for Wales, Alun Cairns, has nailed his colours to the mast for a £20m station at Felindre , near junction 46 of the M4. He said the UK Government was committed in principle to delivering the West Wales Parkway station, on mainly Network Rail-owned land by Felindre Parc business park.

"I really want to enhance the rail network - for too long the access to rail services in West Wales have not been good enough," said Mr Cairns last month.
