An overview of Warren Buffets top 15 investment holdings – Part 1

Buffet is known as a pioneer of the value investing approach to identify investment opportunities. This methodology involves reading through financial statements in order to identify cases where the market has mispriced stocks. Value investors actively seek out the stocks they believe the market has undervalued, and investors who use this strategy think the market may have overreacted to either good or bad news, which results in stock price movements that may not necessarily correspond to a company’s long-term fundamentals.
