Earlier Strategic techniques:

 

The most of the Warren Buffet’s
fortune is derived from the 18 percent economic interest in Berkshire Hathaway,
which is an invest company traded publicly that returned 20.8% annually from
1965 to 2016, which is based on Berkshire’s annual report  released Feb.25, 2017.

According to a January 2, 2018, Form

·        
Warren
Buffet’s investing techniques and principles have earned him the title “world’s
greatest investor”. He bought enough stock, which placed himself on the top
boards of companies. In the early age of 
time when he was not quite a millionaire, he ran an investment
partnership which bought into a company called SanBorn Map Company, where he was one of the board member.

·        
When
you become the board member, you get the responsibilities to guide the
organization’s direction and the hiring or replacing of CFOs and CEOs. Which
requires a huge potential to do so because you are at the top management level
of the company and it’s market reputation and growth epends up on your
strategies and decisions made with the board members and at the same time
depends how to implement those techniques in the organization. For which,
Buffet played a vital role in whichever company he invested or bought to take
it to the next level.

 

 

·        
He
is completely meticulous about the company he buys and never sit back to count
the money company made instead he performs the possible taskhe could, which
emphasizes the fact that for being wealthy, you should be the owner i.e. if you
want money a bit sooner, then the best way is to be involved in ownership of a
business.

 

·        
Buffet- “Buy and Hold”!

According to the media and financial
advisors, Buffet is an example of why you should buy and hold. He used to buy
for some specific reasons and when those reasons are no more present, he
generally sells. Which classied him as a “value investor.”- person who buys
stocks that have a low price to earnings ratio. He usually looks for good
prices, competitive advantage and excellent management. For example, in 1996,
he sent a letter to shareholders, in which he cited Sears, GM and IBM as the great
companies, but could not stay competitive in their market place, so they
suffered and companies would have been sent to dump out of a portfolio.

 

Buying a stock and holding it
forever was not Buffet’s cup of tea. Out of the 20 companies he invested, he
still holds the Berkshire Hathaway, which is due to only it’s name and the
remaining 19, he no longer owns. Which suggests that instead of holding it for
long or even for a shorter span, just look at the figures and make a smart move
that may enables one to achieve greater heights.
