As the world’s greatest investor, US billionaire Warren Buffett is worth listening to at any time. But especially now, when many investors will be wondering whether this is a good time to buy FTSE 100 shares.The index has recovered pretty well since crashing below 5,000 in March. It’s climbed around 27% since then, with the latest leg-up due to coronavirus vaccine hopes. Anybody who listened to Warren Buffett during the March meltdown and piled into bargain FTSE 100 stocks will be feeling pleased with themselves today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett has always emphasised the benefits of taking advantage of stock market falls to pick up top companies at reduced prices. He believes you need to tune out the short-term noise, and look at the bigger picture.As he once said: “In the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial panics; oil shocks; a flu epidemic; and the resignation of a disgraced president. Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497.”I’d buy like Warren Buffett todayThe same applies to the FTSE 100. There’s no question that stock markets will get through the pandemic, because that’s what they’ve always done. The recovery may be bumpy and take longer than you’d like, but share prices will climb over the longer run.Right now, shares are becalmed. That often happens after the kind of growth spurt we’ve seen since Pfizer‘s vaccine announcement on 9 November. So when will we see the next leg of the recovery? I’ve got no idea. Nor has Warren Buffett, who once said: “We’ve long felt that the only value of stock forecasters is to make fortune tellers look good.”He would rather stick to things he can do well, such as unearthing bargain-priced companies with a bright future. That’s what I’d be doing right now.I’d buy top FTSE 100 stocks todayHistory shows that stock markets are volatile in the short term, but the long-term trajectory is upwards. I expect that pattern to repeat itself. I bet Warren Buffett does too. His strategy at times like these is simple. Buy great companies at reduced prices, then look to hold them for years and years. That way you get them at a cheap price, then reap the benefits as their earnings and dividends compound.I was surprised to discover recently that Warren Buffett holds 87% of his stocks in just three sectors: financials, consumer staples and information technology. He doesn’t run around snapping up a broad spread of stocks either. Incredibly, Apple accounts for nearly half of his financial vehicle Berkshire Hathaway‘s stock holdings.So don’t be afraid to go big if you spot a great opportunity. Warren Buffett doesn’t. Follow his advice and look for companies with loyal customers, sustainable revenues and a durable competitive advantage, or ‘moat’. If you can do that, you won’t go too far wrong buying stocks today.
