    Warren Buffett's warrants to buy almost 135 million General Electric common shares are still worthless, as they have been for almost the entire time since Berkshire Hathaway's $3 billion investment in the company was announced exactly one year ago today.  That's in sharp contrast to Buffett's Goldman Sachs warrants, now worth about $3 billion.  But the primary motivation for both deals, a 10 percent annual return on a total of $8 billion in loans to the two company, is still paying off handsomely.

  • Warren Buffett and Forbes

    Warren Buffett tops the list of the biggest losers among America's richest billionaires, with an estimated $10 billion drop in his personal wealth over the past twelve months. That's the result of Berkshire Hathaway's 20 percent stock decline.  But Buffett's remaining $40 billion is still enough to maintain his number two ranking on the annual Forbes 400 ranking of the country's wealthiest people.
