As reported by Reuters Berkshire's AAPL position went from 252.5 million shares to 249.6 million. This is a relatively small change, representing a 1 percent drop in equities. Earlier, Buffett has warned that such minor fluctuations are due to share buy-backs rather than actual position changes.
Nevertheless, AAPL is still Buffetts most valuable individual sock investment. His share in the company is now valued at about $ 40 billion, from $ 57 billion before the fourth quarter.
Barron's adds that Charlie Munger, a long-term partner of Warren Buffett in Berkshire, addressed the company's share in the AAPL at an event today. He explained:
"I don't know why Apple's stores go up or down. I know I admire the place, but I don't know enough to make sense why it's going up or down," Munger said. who is president of the Daily Journal. "Part of our secret is that we are not trying to know many things." Munger also mentioned that he has a pile on his desk about issues that he considers "too difficult" to find out.
Buffett added to his AAPL action several times during 2018. He was one of the biggest winners when AAPL hit his $ 1 trillion in August. He is currently the third largest AAPL shareholder who owns about 5 percent of the company. AAPL is 21.5 percent of Berkshire's holdings, according to MarketWatch.
Berkshire has also completely left his stake in Oracle. The company first announced its $ 2.13 billion investment in Oracle during November, and it is very unusual to leave a position so quickly.
AAPL is down for a while and is currently at $ 170.80 a. Share. Berkshire is set to report its fourth quarter and full 2018 results on February 23.
