Guess Which Stocks Warren Buffett Bought: 4th-Quarter Contest

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

February 06, 2019 | About:

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

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

Yes, the contest does include stocks 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 fourth-quarter buys and sales on or around Feb. 15. We’ll announce the winner(s) shortly after that.

In the third quarter, Buffett bought JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), Oracle Corp. (NYSE:ORCL), PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (NYSE:PNC) and The Travelers Companies (NYSE:TRV).

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.

Buybacks do not count.

Good luck!

Mostly AAPL (and his own stock (BRK), but I know it doesn't count), also plenty of banks- as much of BAC as possible up to or close to the limit of 9.9%, some more JPM and GS, and possibly BK, USB, and TEVA.

Holly, you should have asked people to chime in on HOW MUCH he spent of his $100+ billion, since many people are going to guess the same stocks.

Buffett of course will continue. Buying AAPL, he should have bought FB and GOOG and follow his advice of best to buy a wonderful business at a good price over a fair business at a great price.
