  1. Warren Buffett accelerates the depreciation of PP&E for tax purposes. This creates a deferred tax liability on the balance sheet of Berkshire Hathaway, and it acts as a 0% loan against Berkshire Hathaways tax bill with no traditional loan covenants.

    Buffett takes the insurance premiums from GEICO and invests them. This is called insurance float investing. From 1976-2011, Buffets costs of insurance float was 2.2% per year, a rate that was lower than the average treasury rate over the period.

    Berkshire Hathaway issues convertible bonds and enjoyed an AAA credit rating from 1989 to 2009. In the early 2000s Berkshire Hathaway issued a negative coupon security, a senior note with a warrant attached.

    Buffett writes long term out of the money put options on several equity indices. These are called long term equity anticipation securities (LEAPS). With limited exceptions, these securities have no collateral posting requirements. Buffett writes out of the money put LEAPS with high implied volatility due to the term structure of volatility, the steep volatility skew, and the nature of the implied volatility surface.

    Buffett uses those 4 forms of leverage to invest.

    Buffett invests in low beta companies, and he takes advantage of the Ex-post anomaly that low beta securities slightly outperform their risk levels relative to what a capital asset pricing model would predict.

    Buffett invests in value companies, which are companies with low P/E, EV/EBITDA, and low P/B ratios.

    Buffett invests in robustly profitable companies, with high ROA and high ROE percentages.

    Buffett invests in conservative companies with a fair amount of cash on their balance sheets.

    Buffett invested in small companies early in his career, but he now manages such large sums that small companies don’t make a meaningful impact on Berkshire Hathaways balance sheet.

    Berkshire Hathaway invests in dozens of companies, and so the R^2 test statistic of Berkshire Hathaways portfolio is very high, somewhere between 0.97 and 0.999. This means that Buffetts track record is due to systematic risk more so than idiosyncratic risk.

    Buffett has built his extraordinary track record as an investor and professional capitalist within the context of an efficient market framework.
