Warren Buffett
Value Investor, Billionaire, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway

Over the past thirty-five years, Warren Buffett has emerged as arguably the greatest investor in American history.  If you had invested $10,000 in Berkshire Hathaway when he took control in 1965, your holdings would be worth more than $50 million today.  The second-richest man in the world, Buffett still lives in the same house he bought three decades ago for $31,500, drives an older Lincoln Towncar, and downs countless cans of Coca-Cola every day.
