What is the only company worth over $500,000 per share on the New York Stock Exchange?
Warren Buffett is regarded as one of the greatest investors of all time. Known as the Oracle of Omaha, Buffett is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., a conglomerate that is one of the largest companies in the world. Buying a single share of Berkshire’s stock will set you back quite a bit of money. Its class A shares have the highest per-share price of any public company in the world, currently trading at an astonishing $557,415 per share. Buffett bought his first shares of Berkshire Hathaway in December 1962 for $7.50 each. An investment of $1,000 at the time would be worth over $74 million today.
The correct answer is Berkshire Hathaway.
