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.
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.
