Warren Buffet's Huge Foothold in the Construction Industry

I've always known that Warren Buffet owns a lot of companies but I never figured he was this entrenched into the Real Estate and Construction Industries. Many of them I knew but there were also a couple surprises in his list of acquired companies.

"I own all these companies in the construction industry"

Warren Buffett through Berkshire Hathaway Inc owns 65 distinct companies, which are divided into a complex web of over 260 subsidiaries. The highlighted companies are his construction-related holdings. There may be more this year.
