Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-B) is 81 years old today and many are paying tribute. Earlier this year, we gave a breakdown of his greatest investments in history. The recent addition of a huge preferred and warrant purchase in Bank of America Corporation (NYSE: BAC) is not on that list, not yet at any rate, but those warrants could pay off in the billions of dollars if the bank gets its ship turned around.
Some of Buffett’s greatest investments might not be what they seem, but some are as follows: The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO); American Express Company (NYSE: AXP); Proctor & Gamble (NYSE: PG); The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW); and PetroChina (NYSE: PTR). See his greatest investments in full.
Warren Buffett’s most recent holdings had some new additions, but these are far too small to become anywhere near his greatest moves ever.
