List of Berkshire holdings
Buffett has become a cult figure, but I guess very few people could name every stock currently owned by Berkshire. So I dug out the SEC report and compiled the following list of his major holdings (which omits the soon-to-be acquired DJ and several companies whose tickers I could not find on Yahoo Finance):
AXP ASD AMP BUD BAC BNI KO CMCSA COP COST FDC GCI GE HD IR IRM JNJ LOW MTB MCO NKE NSC PTR PG SNY TMK TYC USB USG UNP UNH UPS WMT WPO WFC WLP WSC WU
Right now Buffett is presumably buying UNP and NSC, which he would not disclose in the form. Also, as know from his latest list of purchases, Buffett is bullish on banks - BAC, USB, and WFC, Big Pharma - JNJ and SNY, and consumer staples - NKE and PG. Finally, as evidenced by his sell activity, he is less than sanguine about the prospects of WU and outright bearish about HRB and PIR.
And do you know of any other good companies that bear Buffett's stamp of approval?
