Nicolas Berggruen is just your typical 50 year old, handsome, homeless billionaire. He
doesn’t a car, a house or even a watch. He was never married and doesn’t claim to have fathered any children. He just travels around the world and stays in hotels. (Yawn.)
Forbes pegs his net worth at 2.2 billion, but Berggruen says it’s more.
He recently told the New York Times “I’m not optimistic in the short term,” Mr. Berggruen said. “I just think that if some businesses are going to survive it’s worth investing now as long as it’s a real business, and as long as you don’t have to sell the stock to make a mortgage payment or eat next week.”
He went on say that he liked interational companies that pay dividends, mentioning Nestlé and Anheuser-Busch InBev, in particular.
