Warren Buffett Buys And Sells These Stocks Surprisingly

Warren Buffett and his team of portfolio managers listed some 148 positions worth a whopping $147.9 billion in equities in the official Form 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This compared to $128.8 billion as of the end of the third quarter of 2016 and $115.46 billion as of December 31.

It is important to understand that some changes are made by Warren Buffett himself, with 14 sub-entities of Berkshire Hathaway in prior filings.

Attached you will find a small overview of Warren Buffett's latest stock buys and sells during Q4 in 2016...
