Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett have taken out a new position in Charter Communications and have purchased 2.3 million shares that are worth $365 million back at the end of June.
The shares are doing well since Buffett has opened up the position.
Based on the latest 13 F filing with the SEC, we’ve also noticed that Buffett has substantially added to his position in Verizon, and purchased 4 million shares. Berkshire Hathaway now owns more than 15 million shares of the company, and its worth around $733 million.
The 13 F requires that positions are disclosed within 45 days once a quarter ends, so the latest 13 F represents shares that were purchased on June 30.

Other notable Buffett moves… He sold 9.7 million shares of Conoco Phillips, and sold 11 million shares of DirecTV.
