Quarterly Contest: What Stocks Did Warren Buffett Buy?
Posted by: guruhl (IP Logged)

What stocks did Warren Buffett buy in the second quarter? It's anybody's guess. Think you know? Post three stocks in the comments section below.

Last quarter, there were four winners: Chihin, Errold, Luishernandez and Clemo69. They correctly guessed that Buffett bought DaVita (DVA), Wells Fargo (WFC) and IBM (IBM). Congratulations!

When the portfolio is revealed, winners will get an investing book of their choice:
  1. Joel Greenblatt: The Little Book That Still Beats the Market (Little Books. Big Profits)
  2. Joel Greenblatt: You Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits
  3. Benjamin Graham: The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel (Revised Edition)
  4. Martin Whitman: The Aggressive Conservative Investor
  5. Peter Lynch: Beating the Street
  6. Peter Lynch: One Up On Wall Street : How To Use What You Already Know To Make Money In The Market
  7. Benjamin Graham: Security Analysis: The Classic 1934 Edition
  8. David Dreman: Contrarian Investment Strategies - The Next Generation
  9. The Snowball: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life
  10. Howard Marks: The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor (Columbia Business School Publishing)


We host the same contest every quarter. What would Warren Buffett do? Happy guessing!

LEE, IBM

Man, am I boring Reason for all of them being that he simply added to his positions.

RFP. A lumber and paper company. In part because people still produce paper. It's not that dead yet. RFP is a big player that just went through bankruptcy/restructuring a few years ago. And many countries don't have trees to produce their own raw materials for paper so they have to import it. Also should be a nice housing recovery play. And I own it, that hsould be erason enough for Warren to buy it!
