Warren Buffett is widely recognized as one of the best overall investors in America.

Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway routinely out performs leading indices. Berkshire is a conglomerate. That was a term that had a bad connotation in the 1980’s, but this is not the case with Berkshire. They are major stock holders in companies such as Coca-Cola, Citigroup, Chevron Apple and Kraft Heinz. In addition, they own outright many companies including Fruit of the Loom, Duracell, Dairy Queen, Pilot Truck Stops and Benjamin Moore Paint.
