Warren Buffett Stocks: Analyzing The Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio

The Berkshire Hathaway portfolio is a diverse set of blue chips and some lesser-known growth bets. Here, we look at all stocks picked by Buffett and his team.

Warren Buffett's stock picks aren't what they used to be. Indeed, the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) equity portfolio has changed dramatically over the past few years. Although old-guard favorites such as American Express (AXP) and Coca-Cola (KO) still form the core of the portfolio, Buffett & Co. have taken a shine to names such as Apple (AAPL) and Amazon.com (AMZN), and even to lesser-known firms such as Snowflake (SNOW) and Nu Holdings (NU).

One thing that hasn't changed, however, is Buffett's preference for maintaining a highly concentrated portfolio. Excluding the holding company's Japanese brokerage stocks, Apple accounts for more than 40% of Berkshire's equity portfolio. Berkshire's top five U.S. equity holdings comprise more than three-quarters of its value, while the top 10 account for more than 90%.
