- Wells Fargo (WFC) - he mentioned he added around $1 billion. Purchase made by Buffett.

- Liberty Media (LMCA) - during July and August in traded below $100, therefore they must have added to the position, which was not that big. The purchases were most likely done by Ted Weschler.

- DaVita (DVA) - filings show that Berkshire has kept adding to their stake in this company. The purchases were most likely done by Ted Weschler, even though Todd Combs may have bought some too.
