Warren Buffett To Reveal Latest Stock Buys And Sells In Berkshire Hathaway's Q2 Filing

Warren Buffett will reveal his latest stock moves as Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB) gets set to post a key regulatory filing in the coming days for the second quarter of 2021.


The highly anticipated 13-F will give an in-depth look into assets Berkshire bought and sold during the second quarter.

The company remained a seller of stocks in Q2, according to its earnings report earlier this month.

Its net stock sales of $1.1 billion in Q2 was down from $3.9 billion in Q1, but it marked the third straight quarter of selling.

Still, the value of Berkshire’s overall stock portfolio swelled 8.7% to $293.8 billion by the end of Q2. That was up from $270.4 billion in Q1, as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq hit fresh highs to close out the quarter.

Meanwhile, Berkshire bought $6 billion worth of BRKB stock in Q2. That move cam after it repurchased $6.6 billion in Q1 and a record $27.4 billion in 2020.

Buffet’s stock portfolio remains highly concentrated in a handful of companies. In Q2, 69% of its aggregate value was in Apple (AAPL) ($124.3 billion) and Bank of America (BAC) ($42.6 billion). Also, American Express (AXP) ($25.1 billion), and Coca-Cola (KO) ($21.6 billion).
