Each quarter, the largest US investment managers publish their "13F" on the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) website. These quarterly reports list the assets under management of investment managers with control over more than $100 million in assets and who hold so-called "long" US positions. Form 13F covers Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs), banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, trust companies, pension funds and mutual funds. This report is published no later than 45 days after the end of the quarter concerned. The cut-off date was 08/16/2021 for the second quarter (Q2 2021).
Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway
Number of listed US positions: 44 - Value of listed portfolio: $293,023,412,000
Warren Buffett has added to the stocks he had already included in his portfolio:
- Aon, which provides advice and solutions focused on risk, reinsurance (Warren's hobby), retirement and health.
- RH, formerly Restoration Hardware Holdings, a retailer in the home furnishings market.
- Shares of food distributor The Kroger Co, which adds a touch of defensiveness to his portfolio.
- He lightened up on AbbVie, Merck & Co, Marsh & McLennan, Liberty Global and General Motor.
The only real new position is Organon & Co, a pharmaceutical company primarily engaged in the development and supply of women's health solutions and biosimilars. However, the size of this position should be put into perspective. It weighs only 0.02% of its portfolio.
