Russia and Putin Don't Scare Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett's bottom-up strategy doesn't allow him to be affected by things like the Russia-Ukraine conflict. He is focused on owning businesses that will survive spats such as these. Which is why his most recent letter highlighted Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-B  ) ownership of BNSF Railway company. He is extremely bullish on the long-term prospects; so much so that he has boosted planned capital expenditures to a company record $5 billion for BNSF this year. Most might be wondering if the TransCanada (NYSE: TRP  ) Keystone XL pipeline worries him at all. Well, it simply doesn't. He believes there will be plenty of oil for everyone.
