Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-B, BRK-A) has shown its holdings as of the close of business for December 31, 2009, so that being said these are Warren Buffett’s most recent holdings going into 2010. We have already seen how some holdings have been trimmed, and some of these holdings will have been further cut even since the end of the year.
