Berkshire Hathaway holding is now retaining 245 million Apple shares in possession, making it the second biggest Apple shareholder.

The number 2 in Warren Buffett‘s portfolio is Bank of America, where he parked roughly US $22b of his fund, according to the closing price in 6/7.

Apple is the best company the world known of, according to Buffett. He even revealed that for him, Apple is not simply a stock, but the third separate business division of Berkshire Hathaway. For now, Berkshire Hathaway completely owned 2 companies, which are Geico Insurance and BNSF railways.

Before this point, all Top-of-the-list stocks plummeted deeply due to the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. This leaves a loss of $50b to Berkshire Hathaway holding in the first quarter.

Most of the companies under Berkshire’s possession are “mildly to seriously” affected by the Covid-19 virus, with the range of decline from 5.2% to 34%. Meanwhile, BNSF railways and all retail companies are being forced to close.

Back in May, Buffett said the fund has $137b of cash in its balance sheet. However, Buffett has “not done anything, because we don’t see anything that attractive to do”.
