Buffett keeps outperforming the S&P 500 at the age of 92
The Oracle of Omaha has kept on buying stocks amid this year’s bear market
Here’s a look at his current portfolio with InvestingPro

When we talk about value investing, the one person who will always come to mind is Warren Buffett, arguably the greatest investor of all time. Born on August 30, 1930, in Omaha, Nebraska, United States, he is one of the wealthiest men in the world and is the chairman of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRKa) (NYSE:BRKb).

When he was 24 years old, he was hired to work in the company of another great investor, Benjamin Graham. In 1956, he left that company and, with his savings, opened the Buffett Partnership, an investment partnership.

Eventually, he began to buy Berkshire Hathaway shares aggressively, and after taking full control of the company, he changed the company’s business from textiles to insurance. On August 14, 2014, Berkshire Hathaway’s stock price reached $200,000 per share.

Warren Buffett is one of the greatest exponents of value investing, an investment philosophy that consists of buying undervalued companies to sell them in the future or even hold them for the very long term. However, what not many people know, is that the concept of value investing, in fact, comes from Buffett’s mentor, Benjamin Graham, who coined the term in 1928.

Let’s dive into Buffett’s current portfolio using the InvestingPro tool:
