For the third quarter of 2020, Berkshire revealed new positions in AbbVie Inc. (ABBV, Financial), Merck & Co. Inc. (MRK, Financial), Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (BMY, Financial), Snowflake Inc. (SNOW, Financial), T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS, Financial) and Pfizer Inc. (PFE, Financial).
Other major trades for the quarter included reductions of the long-held Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC, Financial) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM, Financial) stakes. The long-term investors also completely sold out of Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) and trimmed the Apple Inc. (AAPL) holding. In addition, the position in Bank of America Corp.
