These 15 cities boast the best 20-year returns on home values

Depending where you live, staying put in your home for the last two decades could be paying off well. As in really well. While the median nationwide home value is about 90% higher now than it was in 1999 — $226,800 compared with about $119,000 — some spots boast values that have jumped far more than that. In some places, the gain is more than 300% or even 400%. However, that doesn’t take into consideration other housing costs that can eat into profits: property taxes, maintenance or improvements

Bill Gates: A key to Warren Buffett's success is 'something anyone could do'

Warren Buffett is anything but average: The legendary investor has an approximate net worth of $82 billion, making him the third richest person in the world. At 88, he still runs Berkshire Hathaway, his holding company that owns businesses like Geico, Dairy Queen and See’s Candies.

A key to Buffett’s extraordinary success, though, is a refreshingly simple habit and “something anyone can do,” his longtime friend Bill Gates pointed out in a recent blog post: He reads every day.

Buffett, who spends between five and six hours a day paging through books and newspapers, finds it “enjoyable to think about business and investment problems,” he says in HBO’s documentary “Becoming Warren Buffett.”

Plus, staying up to date on business news and current events is a relatively simple way to gain a competitive advantage. “Everybody can read what I read. It is a level playing field,” Buffett used to tell his late wife, Susan Buffett, according to the HBO documentary.

“And he loves that because he is competitive,” Susan said of Buffett. “He’s sitting there all by himself in his office, reading these things that everybody else can read, but he loves the idea that he is going to win.”

Meet the 2019 CNBC Disruptor 50 companies

In the seventh annual Disruptor 50 list, CNBC features private companies — from biotech and machine learning to transportation, retail and agriculture — whose innovations are changing the world and fueling a race between superpowers like the U.S. and China. These forward-thinking start-ups have not only identified unexploited niches in the market that have the potential to become billion-dollar businesses, a majority of them already are billion-dollar businesses. A startling 36 disruptors this year are unicorns that have already reached or passed the billion-dollar mark.

Unseating corporate giants is no easy feat. But we ranked those venture capital–backed companies doing the best job. In aggregate, these 50 companies have raised over $46 billion in venture capital at an implied Disruptor 50 list market valuation of more than $266 billion, according to PitchBook data. Many already are part of our daily lives, whether or not we know it. Read more about the trends that stand out in the 2019 list ranking — from the future of farming and residential real estate to the battles for control in the rapidly growing artificial intelligence and genetics industries — and the methodology used to select this year’s Disruptor companies.
