A lot of people say they want to invest like Warren Buffett invests – but not many can.

That’s not to say they can't make the same kind of investment decisions, it’s just not many people can take the time horizon that Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett’s investment company, can.

In November 2009, for example, in Berkshire’s largest-ever deal, Buffett invested $34 billion buying Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp., the second-largest railroad in the United States. Asked how long Berkshire Hathaway saw itself owning Burlington, Buffett replied that it was “a good asset for Berkshire to own over the next century.”
