Warren Buffett started buying Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) shares in 1962. Back then shares were less than $10 and Buffett himself was a mere millionaire. Since then, Berkshire shares have grown massively as Buffett turned Berkshire into the world's largest holding company with shares that sell for more than $400,000.

The Oracle of Omaha, as many refer to Buffett, is now worth more than $100 billion according to Bloomberg’s Billionaire index. Recent stock purchases over the last 15 years have helped Buffett’s wealth massively increase. A five-billion purchase of Bank of America (BAC) in 2011, buying Apple (AAPL) in 2016 and more recently piling into oil company’s Chevron (CVX) and Occidental Petroleum (OXY).
