    Warren Buffett was born in Omaha, Nebraska, August 30, 1930. He came from a business family – his grandparents owned a grocery business and his father was an investment specialist and later was elected to Congress in 1942. Warren Buffett purchased his first stock, Cities Service Preferred, for $38 a share when he was 11 years old. Buffett took to stock-picking like a seasoned professional, and had amassed approximately $53,000 in portfolio assets (in today’s dollars) by the time he was 16 years old. His early lessons on stock picking have held firm over the decades. As a young investor, Buffett learned that picking stocks was tough, so when he found a good one, he hung on to it as long as he could. Buffett continued investing into his 20s and at 32 years old, uncovered a New England textile company called Berkshire Hathaway. Founded in 1839 as the Valley Falls Company (so named because it resided in Valley Falls, R.I.), the company owned multiple textile companies in the region, and...

    Warren Buffet’s first insurance company purchase for Berkshire Hathaway was the National Indemnity Co., in 1970. A few years later, Berkshire took a swing again, buying up an equity stake in Government Employees Insurance Company, better known to millions of advertising consumers as GEICO.

Along with Munger, who came aboard with Berkshire Hathaway in the 1970s, Buffett continued to focus on companies with stable, almost predictable long-term growth, while shying away from what everyone else (i.e., the herd) was doing on Wall Street – buying stocks based on assets and cash flow, and in somewhat speculative industries. Buffett practiced wh...
