Berkshire Hathaway employs the value investing principles of Benjamin Graham. Their investment approach focuses on buying shares of companies as a long-term investment. The firm seeks to invest in businesses that are easy to understand and have high ROE, exceptional management teams and limited debt.

The firm owns stock in a diverse group of over 50 public and private companies in wide range of industries including, but not limited to, manufacturing, retail, energy and finance. Investments are typically financed using the float from Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.'s insurance operations.
