GuruFocus runs a contest every quarter in which 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 Jan. 1 to March 31 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. However, it does not include Amazon (

AMZN, Financial), a stock Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, Financial)(BRK.B, Financial) has already announced was purchased. It also excludes share repurchases of Berkshire Hathaway.

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


Berkshire Hathaway will release Buffett’s portfolio of first-quarter buys and sales on or around May 15. We’ll announce the winner(s) shortly after that.

In the fourth quarter, Buffett bought Red Hat Inc. (

RHT, Financial), Suncor Energy (SU, Financial) and StoneCo Ltd. (STNE, Financial), and added to multiple additional holdings.

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

For more inspiration, see Buffett’s portfolio here.

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

Good luck!
