No one -- no one -- knows the stock market like Warren Buffett. His legendary investing prowess and apparent magical ability to see the future have made this man one of the wealthiest people on Earth. How much do you know about this wealthy Omahan?
Buffett is renowned throughout the world for his financial prowess. He's made many billions of dollars investing in the right companies at the right times.
His Midwestern roots and his seemingly psychic financial abilities make him the "Oracle of Omaha." Few investors can match Warren's mad Wall Street skills.
Buffett is friends and business partners with Bill Gates. When the two men are in the same room, they account for half of the world's wealth, and we made that up.
Bill Gates, the bespectacled founder of Microsoft, is America's richest person. Buffett is "only" second wealthiest, hotly pursued by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com.
"I'll have the burger but no fries, I've already spent like $10 today." Buffett is worth billions but spends very little money, an example that many Americans should probably learn to follow.
Buffett's net worth fluctuates as the markets change, but he's currently worth about $78 billion, which, come to think of it, is probably enough to actually purchase Mars.
Wanna buy a single share of Berkshire Hathaway stock? Be ready to pony up at least $240,000, which was the price of the stock in early 2017 -- on a bad day.
Buffett says that the kids growing up in today's America are the most fortunate human beings ever. He feels they have unlimited potential to achieve their financial goals.
Believe it or not, there are well over 2,000 billionaires on Earth. Sadly, you are not one of them.
Buffett is big on home ownership. He calls 30-year mortgages powerful financial tools for people looking to make solid choices regarding their futures.
His dad was a four-term Congressman. In other words, Warren's path to fame and riches was helped immensely by his fortunate childhood circumstances.
At an age when most boys are pondering their next bicycles, Buffett was looking ahead. He was just 11 when he bought his first stocks. He and his sister pooled their savings.
He's a notable philanthropist. He's committed to giving away about 99% of his money to good causes.
He looks at the stock market as if it's a business and invests accordingly. He doesn't look for get-rich-quick schemes.
Buffett has always credited Graham's book, "The Intelligent Investor," to be one of the biggest influences in his life. It helped him to formulate strategies for creating lasting wealth.
He really wanted to go to Harvard Business School, but the school rejected his application. In hindsight, it's safe to say that Harvard missed the boat on that one.
His investments surged in 2013. He averaged about $37 million -- per day -- during the hot streak.
He bought a pinball machine and put it in a barber shop. The enterprise was an amazing success.
When he was just 16, he'd already saved more than $50,000 in his bank account. Even for the son of a Congressman, that's an impressive amount.
Buffett loves Coke, and he drinks the sugary soda each day. He's also a huge investor in the company.
He was raised in a religious home, but Warren has drifted away from organized religion. He is more agnostic than anything.
In 2012, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was successfully treated and hasn't had any publicized reoccurrences of the disease.
He took up the ukulele to impress a girl -- his plot didn't work, but he did pick up a music skill that he loves to demonstrate wherever he goes.
He's been married twice. His first wife, Susan, died in 2004. He's now married Astrid Menks, who is 16 years his junior.
Buffett's father-in-law was certain the kid was a loser (or maybe the problem was those crazy Democrats). He told him he was going to fail miserably… and that his beloved daughter was going to suffer as a result.
That's right -- Warren has given away so much money to charities that he won the Presidental Medal of Freedom. He didn't have to donate so much cash, but he chooses to do good in the world.
He loves playing cards, especially bridge. He's known to throw around a deck with Bill Gates.
For decades, Buffett has beaten the market soundly and with far greater profits than other investors. No one has a better track record, which is why so many people seek the octogenarian's investing advice.
The young woman appeared in a documentary that took a negative view of wealthy investors. Warren responded by officially disowning her.
He's an information-gathering machine. He spends most of his days reading as much as he can, hoping to get an edge on his competition.
