Bag a Slice of this Stock and Ride Alongside One of the Most Successful Investors of All Time
If I were starting my investing career today and I was working with small $100 installments, one of the first stocks I would buy would be Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A).
As I write this, a single share of BRK-A is trading at an astronomical $418,484.00.
If you’re new to investing, you’ve probably heard of Warren Buffet as one of the greatest investors of our lifetime. But just how good is Warren Buffet, you ask?
Between 1964, the year that Buffett took over Berkshire, and now, Berkshire’s market value has appreciated a whopping 3,638,532%. That means every $1,000 invested in Berkshire back in 1964 is now worth a staggering $36.39 million today.
That’s how good Warren Buffet is at investing – and that’s why his current net worth is $103.7 billion.
Unlike Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk, all of whom founded tech-related companies, Warren Buffet made the vast majority of wealth through investing, so I’d say it’s pretty darn appropriate to call him one of the best investors of our lifetime.
In a nutshell, he favors a long term value investing approach of purchasing stocks at a price below their intrinsic value; then holding them until their price reflects the real value of the company.
It’s really straightforward, pretty boring, and very profitable: assuming you have the patience to hold your positions for the long-term, and the discipline to buy only stocks that meet his stringent “value” criteria.
That’s actually a lot harder than it sounds considering we’re all getting bombarded by the media with what socks are hot, what stocks are cold, what to buy, what to sell…
So, instead of trying to mimic Warren Buffet’s research and discipline, you can simply buy a fractional share of either BRK-A or BRK-B, and you get to ride alongside one of the greatest investors of all time.
And who wouldn’t want to do that!
