Warren Buffett has not made any new investments since he exited his hedge fund, Berkshire Hathaway.
His Berkshire Hathaways stock portfolio is worth $7.5 trillion, but he is not investing any of it.
He has been the target of investor attacks since his departure from Berkshire in 2018, after he wrote a book in which he criticized the industry for being too small and too reliant on a few large companies.
The Berkshire Hathafors book was the first to detail his views on investing, and many other investor attacks followed.
Buffett was among the few hedge fund managers who were able to avoid the worst of the industry’s consolidation, which has seen the industry shrink by more than 20% in the last decade.
“I’ve always been a little bit conservative with my investments,” Buffett said during a CNBC appearance this week.
“We don’t get into a lot of big, wild speculation or wild stock picking.”
The book Buffett penned, The Art of the Deal, described his philosophy of investing, calling for a balance of “conservative” and “aggressive” investing.
Buffett has written two other books.
His second, Buffett on the Hunt: The Art and Science of Investing, was published in 2017.
That book focused on the book market, where many investors are betting against their own money and others are betting on stocks that they have already bought.
The book had a large audience, and it was the top-selling book of the year for a reason: it included a detailed description of how Buffett had spent his retirement money.
In his latest book, The Buffett Rule, published this week, Buffett said he has never invested in a stock, except in some smaller investments that he has been able to make.
Buffett’s book is a reflection of the times.
His book has had a negative impact on the stock market, he said.
“It’s not fair to blame Warren for this,” Buffett told CNBC.
Buffett said it would be fair to take a look at the business side of the stock world to determine what would have happened without him.
“If we were able only to invest in a few companies that are in a position to do well, then we would be able to buy more stocks, and the stock price would have risen more than it has.
And that’s not the case,” he said, adding that he does not expect Berkshire Hathies stock to go anywhere near its current value.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Buffett said the reason he is investing in Berkshire Hathay stocks is because he thinks it will be a better place to do business in five years than it is today.
He said it will allow him to focus more time on the business of investing.
“The last two years I have been in an extraordinary position, which I have never seen in my life, and I think it is fair to say that I’m not happy with it,” he wrote.
Buffett is the richest person in the world, but not the richest investor.
He owns more than a billion shares of Berkshire Hathays stock, which includes some $2.3 trillion of Berkshire’s net worth, according to Forbes.
Buffett owns more stock than anyone in the history of the U.S. It is worth about $6 trillion.
He is not only the wealthiest person in history, but also the richest individual.
Buffett, who has been a billionaire since he was 17, has earned about $13.7 billion in total income from Berkshire Hathys earnings.
In 2017, the Berkshire Hathabes earnings per share were about $5.46.
In 2018, Buffett’s earnings were about 10.6 times larger.
Buffett made $15.2 billion in 2017, while the average billionaire earned $1.3 million.
Buffett took home more than $25 billion from Berkshire this year, according the SEC.
Buffett shares in Berkshire have risen steadily over the past decade.
In 2015, the shares were valued at about $17 billion.
