Warren Buffet is considered one of the most successful investors in modern history. He is the Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) and manages its capital as well.

- Goldman Sachs Group (GS): $5 billion equity stake in Goldman. He also got more than 43 million warrants to buy Goldman shares at $115 and a 10% annual dividend to boot. the value of each of Berkshire’s warrants is $60.26 a piece.If you add it all up, Berkshire is walking away with $8.2 billion for its $5 billion cash infusion.

- Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNI)After high-profile investments in Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS - News) and GE (NYSE: GE - News), Buffett made a lower-profile move last week when a unit of his company, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A - News, BRK-B - News), sold puts in railroad Burlington Northern Santa Fe (NYSE: BNI - News), according to filings with the SEC.

He wants certainly undervalued companies, that are undervalued through the current market situation. Hence companies falling in the first quarter of relative valuation are prime candidates. Since you can diversify risk away, Buffet is certainly not riskavert, he tries to combine non-correlating business together. And finally your company can correct his value if the company is a good performer. (High return on assets and equity, good economical added value)
