The Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Consider In This Falling Market

(Source: Imgflip)

Warren Buffett is viewed as the greatest investor in history, generating approximately 20% CAGR total returns since 1965 at Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B).

Those returns aren’t the best ever delivered, a title held by Renaissance Technologies, whose Medallion Fund has delivered 39% CAGR post fee returns since 1988.
