Guess Which Stocks Warren Buffett Bought: Contest

Win a free book just for knowing the mind of Warren Buffett

GuruFocus runs a contest every quarter wherein people guess the stocks they think Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) bought.

The second-quarter contest begins today. To participate, pick THREE securities you think he rounded up in the three months from March 31 to June 30 and type them into the “comments” section below this article. Hit “post comment.”

Yes, the contest does include stocks that his two portfolio managers, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs, may also have purchased.

Those who guess correctly will win a signed copy of GuruFocus founder Charlie Tian’s new, highly rated book, “Invest Like a Guru.”

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) will release Buffett’s portfolio of second-quarter buys and sells on or around Aug. 15. We’ll announce the winner shortly after that and send them an informatory email.

Last quarter, he or Weschler or Combs made the largest increases to their positions in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK), Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV), American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) and Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI). No new stocks were selected.

For inspiration, see Buffett’s portfolio here.

Don’t forget to add your guesses in the comments.

Good luck!

Likely not going to buy much, maybe just a little more of the airlines, possibly American Airlines.

Buffett is waiting (patiently, as always) for the market to have a meltdown. When it inevitably does, he will then make one of his largest investments ever, spending approximately $30 billion of their approximately $100 billion cash horde on AMZN.
