Apple Inc. tops his list, as Wells Fargo is second, and Kraft Heinz is third, followed by Bank of America,as the fourth place holding. The most watched portfolio award can easily go to Warren Buffett. He outperforms the S&P 500, which is also known as Standard & Poor, an index. It is Buffett’s philosophy to buy great companies at good prices, as in, reasonable prices. Apple comes in at 14.63%, since Berkshire Hathaway owns 165,333,962 shares of Apple stock, as of February 23rd, 2018. The holding value is $27.97 billion.
Wells Fargo comes in at second position, 14.54% of Buffett’s portfolio, and Buffett’s holdings are more than 458 million shares because it is valued at $27.8 billion as of February 2018. Third, on the list as stated earlier in this piece, is Kraft Heinz Company, fourth is Bank of America, and fifth is Coca-Cola Company. If he can manage his portfolio, then you can manage your own portfolio. It is never too late or too soon to work on retirement goals. But millenials will not necessarily retire with the system the way it is now.
Buffett knows that Apple will grow to 2% by 2020. He really trusts his intuition over logic when it comes to appropriate investment strategy. For example, Kraft and Heinz have merged, and Buffett acquired $25.5 billion. Berkshire had owned Heinz and now owns Kraft as well. Berkshire owns at least 26.7% ownership of the combined operation. Berkshire owns 9% of the Wells Fargo situation, and Buffett feels they are a sound, long-term investment. Buffett normally avoids technology stocks but Apple is a great investment because of their balance sheet and the fact that they maintain sales consistency with their products. He does like Apple on top of this. Apple customers also tend to stay put.
