"In December 1999, a Minnesota man paid $210,000 at auction for Warren Buffett′s twenty–year–old wallet. True, it was a wallet with a fairly storied past, having traveled on the backside of a billionaire, but that was not the bidder′s motivation for doling out all that cash. Inside the wallet was a golden egg: a stock pick from none other than the Oracle of Omaha himself. Each of thirty additional individuals donated $1,000 to charity at the behest of the auction winner in order to learn the two–letter ticker symbol of the stock pick, which happened to be real estate investment trust (REIT) First Industrial Realty. On top of all that, after The Wall Street Journal published the stock pick in a printed article, the Morgan Stanley REIT Index registered its largest gain in over a year."
