Since becoming the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A)(NYSE: BRK.B) in 1965, Warren Buffett has masterfully steered the ship. Whereas the benchmark S&P 500 hasn't quite reached a 30,000% total return, including dividends paid, since Buffett became CEO, he's overseen a 4,544,578% aggregate gain in his company's Class A shares (BRK.A), as of the closing bell on Sept. 19, 2023. Although Buffett isn't infallible, he has a knack for picking far more winners than losers.
