Guess Which Stocks Warren Buffett Bought: 3rd-Quarter Contest

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

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

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

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 third-quarter buys and sells on or around Nov. 15. We’ll announce the winner(s) shortly after that.

In the second quarter, Buffett bought Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Delta Airlines (NYSE:DAL) and Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV), among others. His largest positions are Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) and The Kraft Heinz Co. (NASDAQ:KHC).

What did he do in the third quarter? You tell us.

For more inspiration, see Buffett’s portfolio here.

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

Good luck!
