For the most part, Warren Buffett's portfolio has had a pretty good year, along with the broader market. Now, he's looking for one of his picks to make big gains -- but not with his bread and butter, U.S. companies. This U.S. company, Moody's Corp., has tacked on gains of nearly 30% this year -- but it hasn't been with its traditionalsuccess metrics.
