Warren Buffet
Warren Buffet is known as the most successful stock market investor in the world. Having started in 1954 with $100, he is NOW worth around $20 billion. He learned about the markets working for Ben Graham but started to make his own mark with his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway. He bought heavily during the 73-74 US market slump - and this contrarians, value strategy paid off when the market recovered.
    
When Buffet buys, he holds. "My favorite holding period is forever," he says.
    
He only looks at companies he knows and understands - tending to stick to a few sectors such as financial services and consumer goods. He disapproves of Portfolio diversification. He firmly believes in staying in stocks - reinvesting all dividends and staying with a company through temporary share price falls. A key Buffet principle is to ignore what the stock market does and focus on the company. In the Long term, he believes, value Will win.
