    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It was always clear this was Ted/Todd not Buffett.

      The FT has an interesting insight on the AAPL purchase, claiming that Ted and Todd are taking over the Berkshire subsidiaries' pension funds. Here's a quote:

      "A takeover of Berkshire Hathaway’s largest pension funds allowed Warren Buffett’s two investment protégés, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, to make bigger bets like the $1bn stake in Apple that was disclosed this week.

      The former hedge fund managers are expected to assume control of the $2.3bn fund at Precision Castparts, the aerospace supplier Mr Buffett acquired this year, on top of other Berkshire subsidiary pension funds that have already swelled their investment portfolio to $9bn apiece.

      The expanded firepower enabled one of the pair to make the distinctly un-Buffettlike investment in Apple, and has helped Berkshire widen its investment activities into industries, including technology, where Mr Buffett is uncomfortable."
