Warren Buffett investments drop in recent market sell off

Warren Buffett seems to have also been negatively affected by the recent market selloff.

Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway the insurance company turned investment conglomerate run by the billionaire, appears to have lost $11.2 billion in value from its stock market investments, on paper at least, during the worst of the downturn from mid-July to the end of August. 

That represents a 10.3% drop. The good news for Buffett: His, and his investment team’s, performance was likely not much worse than everyone else’s. During the same time, the S&P 500 fell 10.1%.
