He’s been called the “Oracle of Omaha.” Warren Buffett, one of greatest of all time when it comes to investing, continues to make headlines, as Wall Street (and Main Street) is interested in what stocks he’s buying. His main investing vehicle, publicly traded conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B), owns scores of well-known companies outright. But it also takes big positions in well-known (and not so well-known) stocks as well.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Stocks Does Warren Buffett Own?
But while still part of the “old school,” in recent years Buffett has warmed up to tech stocks. Namely, as seen from Berkshire’s $100 billion-plus stake in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Buffett has also made some investments you wouldn’t think someone regarded as a value investor would touch, including tech firms Snowflake (NYSE:SNOW) and Verisign (NASDAQ:VRSN)
Buffett also doesn’t limit his investing to U.S.-based stocks. For example, Berkshire’s portfolio includes holdings in China-based battery and EV maker BYD (OTCMKTS:BYDDF) and Japan-based conglomerate Itochu (OTCMKTS:ITOCF).
What Stocks Is Warren Buffett Buying?
Along with healthcare, Buffett’s been moving more of Berkshire’s money into telecom stocks, like Verizon (NYSE:VZ).
Why did Warren Buffett Sell Airline Stocks?
But while in hindsight this looks to have been an ill-timed sale, at the time it made sense. With the investment thesis on airlines rapidly changing, it seemed best to cut losses, rather than ride things out.
He may be deemed the “Oracle of Omaha,” but even Buffett doesn’t get things right 100% of the time. The silver lining is, long-term success in investing doesn’t mean require perfections. From time to time, you will make losing investments. Yet, with a fine-tuned approach like Buffett’s, and perhaps some ideas from his own portfolio, you too can build a portfolio that produces more profits than losses, over the long-term.
