1976: GEICO (Government Employees Insurance Company)

Inside the Investments of Warren Buffett

“Buffett began researching GEICO out of curiosity, leading to the much-cited anecdote of a young Buffett visiting GEICO’s headquarters on a Saturday morning when the premises were empty except for a janitor and an investment officer named Lorimer Davidson. Davidson later became CEO, and Buffett eventually became owner of the entire company.” — Yefei Lu
