Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-A) and Warren Buffett have released the conglomerate’s full stock holdings as of September 30, 2013. This 13F filing with the SEC shows that the company’s total equity holdings came to $92.035 billion versus $89.03 billion at the end of June. Portfolio managers Todd Combs and Ted Weschler are becoming fixtures at the company as far as their ability to add to positions.
24/7 Wall St. has tallied these positions up on the fly and given color and reference on each holding. We have seen many changes to positions, higher and lower.
The biggest change was Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) being added. We had suggested that Team Buffett needed to park its money there if it wanted more oil and gas exposure. After all, this is the second most valuable company out there and much larger than Berkshire Hathaway itself. This stake was valued at close to $3.3 billion at the end of the quarter.
General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) is a changed position but only since the September 30 cut off period. Sadly, we may not have the full story here yet on the exercise of warrants from its old preferred offering before. We will have to wait until early 2014 before knowing this situation, so stay tuned here on GE.
Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE WFC) was grown yet again. Buffett’s stake is now closing in on $20 billion worth of stock at $19.956 billion. He keeps buying this bank stock up, adding more and more each and every quarter regardless of the share price. We can only expect more of the same until we are proven wrong. Some of this is likely put option writing.
The full list of Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-B) stock holdings as of September 30, 2013 is as follows:
