His investment successes, particularly in buying undervalued companies whose stocks shortly began to rise, made him extremely rich and gained him the sobriquet, "oracle of Omaha." He helped rescue Salomon Brothers from corporate raiders in 1987, and took charge of the New York City house in 1992 in the wake of an insider trading scandal.
