Just a couple weeks ago, 13F filings started flowing in, and Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) ownership disclosures showed that Warren Buffett nearly quadrupled his Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) position in the fourth quarter. The Oracle of Omaha closed out 2016 with approximately 57.4 million shares, up from the 15.2 million shares that Berkshire Hathaway was holding at the end of the third quarter.
Well, it turns out that Buffett wasn’t done loading up on Apple. Not by a long shot.
Berkshire Hathaway is now the single largest holder of Apple
In an interview with CNBC this morning, Buffett shared some more about what Berkshire Hathaway has been buying in the early innings of 2017. Spoiler alert: even more Apple. Since the close of the fourth quarter that’s covered by the 13F, Buffett said that Berkshire continued to buy shares up until earnings; Berkshire stopped buying shares after earnings when shares jumped. Berkshire more than doubled its Apple position during the month of January, and its total holdings are now approximately 133 million shares, valued at around $17 billion.
