They headline is a little misleading. "Buffett" did not buy apple stock. Two of his managers, whom he is delegating more and more investing, made the purchase fo Berkshire.

Cokeefe, the headline doesn't say that Buffett bought Apple stock - it says that "Buffett's Berkshire Buys..", which is accurate.
