Warren Buffett:

  • Berkshire’s annual report is a must-read for many investors due to a popularity of Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders – discussing such topics as investing, corporate governance, and corporate leadership
  • Shareholder meetings in Omaha, Nebraska, have turned into cult-like gatherings, with thousands traveling to listen Buffett answer questions from shareholders
