This is a name that you’ve certainly heard before: Warren Buffett. Across the globe, he is widely known as being the most successful investor in history – mostly because of the small amount of money he started out with (he is currently worth close to $85 billion). Mr. Buffett is referenced constantly in all sorts of financial publications, and investor hopefuls take his advice extremely seriously.
If you open up the front pages of news sites like Business Insider or Forbes, you are likely to see a link with Buffett’s name mentioned – and there is a reason for that. He heads Berkshire Hathaway, and literally makes markets move wildly in either direction by just making a simple comment. His students have learned to understand the value of companies by paying attention to earnings conference calls and understanding their balance sheets – as well as only evaluating the price of a share after properly having confidence in the organization.
