Warren Buffett's 10 Largest Stock Holdings

The probability that you or I will be the next Warren Buffett is about 1 in 7 billion -- the latter is roughly the population of the planet earth. And even that likely overstates our chances, given that Buffett is arguably not only the greatest investor alive today, but perhaps the greatest of all time.

The fact that few investors will ever replicate his success doesn't mean, however, that we can't learn from him. And one of the best ways to do this is to simply examine his portfolio. With this in mind, the following infographic offers a cursory look at Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-A  ) equity portfolio and how well its own stock has performed over the last couple decades.

    But the taxes Buffett want the rich to pay isn't going to affect him! He doesn't have income anymore, he makes his money on investments!

    Dear TSP1973,

    OK, but look at the dividend charts for the stocks that WB owns. He probably makes 10 million dollars a month in dividends.

    That's gotta add up in the capital gains column even when he doesn't sell anything.
