Anecdotes
Known to be very little spender, Warren Buffett bought a private jet for the company. Considering this expense “unnecessary “, he named his plane the "unjustifiable".

Warren Buffett uses every letter to shareholders to promote the products of the company. In 2006 he wrote "I feel good. It's fascinating to see what Cherry Coke and hamburgers can do for us. "

His first takeover was at the age of six by buying six packs of Coca Cola in the grocery store of his grandparents, which he sold at retail winning a cent of profit per can. Today he is the biggest shareholder of the famous company (8.11%).

Each year, in order to reap benefits for a foundation in San Francisco, Warren Buffett auctions on EBay a launch with him. In 2007, an American financial spent $ 650.100 to share a steak with Warren Buffett.
