Guess Which Stocks Warren Buffett Bought: 1st Quarter Contest

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

May 09, 2018 | About:

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

The first-quarter contest begins today. To participate, pick THREE securities you think he rounded up in the three months from Dec. 31 to March 31 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.”

Invest Like  a Guru

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

For inspiration, see Buffett’s portfolio here.

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

Good luck!

He has stated that he bought more AAPL. Otherwise, I'd guess he added to WFC and either Todd or Ted bought (or added to) T.

Right. Warren said he bought more AAPL. What about everything is to overvalued so he didn't buy anything.

GuruFocus hasn't announced a WINNER for this contest yet. I have looked everywhere on the GF website and can't see the winner announcement. 4 contributors guessed the stocks correctly.
