Warren Buffett, arguably one of the world's most successful stock pickers, is out $2 billion Wednesday morning.

His Berkshire Hathaway holds large chunks of Coca-Cola and IBM, both of which took a hit after reporting weak earnings this week.

That amounted to a $2 billion loss in just two days for Buffett, which may sound like a lot but is actually pocket change considering his $68 billion net worth.
