Warren Buffett’s investment in Burlington Northern took place a little under a year ago, but he’s already made a killing on his $44 billion investment, if other comparable railroad stock returns are to be believed.
If Buffett bought into one of these four railroad stocks, he would have, on average, made a 31.92% return.
In that scenario, Buffett’s investment of $44 billion has now increased to $58.05 billion, or an increase of $14.05 billion.
In comparison, the S&P 500 has only gained 6.01% during the same time period.
