The second-quarter contest begins today. To participate, pick THREE stocks you think he purchased in the three months from March 31 to June 30 and post them into the “comments” section below this article.
Yes, the contest does include stocks his two portfolio managers, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs, may also have purchased. But, it does not include Bank of America (BAC, Financial) or Occidental Petroleum (OXY, Financial), because Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, Financial)(BRK.B, Financial) has already announced that it bought those. It also excludes share repurchases of Berkshire Hathaway.
Those who guess correctly will win a signed copy of GuruFocus founder Charlie Tian’s highly rated book, “Invest Like a Guru.”
Berkshire Hathaway will release Buffett’s portfolio of second-quarter buys and sales on or around Aug. 15. We’ll announce the winner(s) shortly after that.
In the first quarter, Berkshire was light on buying, but it picked up Amazon (AMZN, Financial), Red Hat Inc. (RHT, Financial), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM, Financial), Delta Airlines Inc. (DAL, Financial) and PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (PNC, Financial).
What did it do in the first quarter? You tell us.
