Warren Buffett

The HTML to link to this page
 

Warren Buffett was born in Omaha, Nebraska on August 30, 1930. Called "the Oracle of Omaha" for his uncanny ability to invest in undervalued companies, Warren Buffett took his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, to near the top of Fortune 500 list. Warren Buffett graduated in Economics from Columbia University, New York where he came under tutelage of the legendary investor Benjamin Graham.
"Buffettology", as the investment philosophy of Warren Buffett is called, goes beyond Graham's value-investing by looking at the intrinsic value of company as a whole for acquisition. Warren Buffett scouts for established companies that are grossly undervalued. Berkshire Hathaway, the flagship textile company Warren Buffett bought in 1962, provided the capital for his future acquisitions. Since then, Warren Buffett has diversified into a variety of companies such as American Express, Coca-Cola, and Gillette.
