The “What Stocks Did Warren Buffett Buy?” quarterly contest is on. As the investing mogul’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) prepares to release its third-quarter portfolio, do you think you know what he bought? If so, enter your three best guesses into the comments section below. Winners will receive a free investing classic 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: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life
  10. Howard Marks: The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor (Columbia Business School Publishing)
In the second quarter, there were five winners: Rgarga, Mohmand, Chihin, Ecotycoon and Luishernadez. They guessed that Buffett bought three of the following: Wells Fargo (WFC), IBM (IBM), Lee Enterprises (LEE), Viacom (VIA.B), Bank of New York Mellon (BK), Liberty Media (LMCA), DaVita (DVA) and DirecTV (DTV).

GuruFocus will announce contest winners after Buffett’s portfolio is released. Happy guessing!
