If you always knew what Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) was going to buy, you would be fabulously wealthy. But, if you can guess three stocks he bought this quarter, you can win a value investing classic of your choice from GuruFocus!

To participate in the quarterly “What Did Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) Buy?” contest, choose three stocks you think Buffett (or one of his two new Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) portfolio managers, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs) bought in the fourth quarter, and enter them in the “comments” section below.

Buffett’s updated fourth quarter portfolio should be out within a week. When it appears, GuruFocus will see who correctly guessed three of his new stock buys. We will then notify you so you can select a free book from the list below to be sent to you:

· Joel Greenblatt: The Little Book That Still Beats the Market (Little Books. Big Profits)

· Joel Greenblatt: You Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits

· Benjamin Graham: The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel (Revised Edition)

· Martin Whitman: The Aggressive Conservative Investor

· Peter Lynch: Beating the Street

· Peter Lynch: One Up On Wall Street : How To Use What You Already Know To Make Money In The Market

· Benjamin Graham: Security Analysis: The Classic 1934 Edition

· David Dreman: Contrarian Investment Strategies - The Next Generation

· The Snowball: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

Good luck!

Holly, Could you please clarify the rules of this contest? It's public knowledge that Berkshire bought DVA, XOM, and GS during the Q4. Are you asking, which companies did he buy other than those three?
