GuruFocus runs a contest every quarter in which people guess the stocks they think

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) might have bought.

The third-quarter contest begins today. To participate, pick THREE stocks you think he purchased in the three months from July 1 to Sept. 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. It also excludes the share repurchases of Berkshire Hathaway (

BRK.A, Financial)(BRK.B, Financial).

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 third-quarter buys and sales on or around Nov. 15. We’ll announce the winner(s) shortly after that.

In the second quarter, Berkshire did not establish any new positions, but added to its holdings of Bank of America Corp. (

BAC, Financial), US Bancorp (USB, Financial), Inc. (AMZN, Financial) and Red Hat Inc. (RHT, Financial).

What did it do in the third quarter? You tell us.

For more inspiration, see Buffett’s portfolio here.

Don’t forget to add your guesses in the comments below.

Good luck!
