Warren Buffett was a major shareholders in Walmart until 2016, when he sold most of Berkshire Hathaway's stake in the retailer. At that time, Buffett cited Jeff Bezos and Amazon as a threat that made retail stocks a "tough" game. Walmart stock has risen from the $70-range to the $100-range since Berkshire sold billions in shares, but Berkshire has seen newer holdings in tech, such as Apple, and deep value plays, such as Teva Pharmaceuticals, perform very well.
Cheap and sleek, manufactured housing in the U.S. is primed for a comeback. Consolidation among producers after the subprime crisis and the exodus of lenders have left just a few businesses -- including three owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) took five and a half years to go from a $500 billion to a $1 trillion company.

Here are what I consider the pros and cons of owning AAPL stock under this intense scrutiny.
The purchases and sales of stocks that BRK.B makes in the marketplace are closely watched but I like to just look at the charts and indicators of Berkshire. In this daily bar chart of BRK.B, below, we can see that BRK.B was in a downtrend from January to the end of June.

Warren Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B, $205.83), wasn't kidding when he said he couldn't get enough bites of Apple's (AAPL) stock. The Oracle of Omaha added to Berkshire Hathaway's already hefty stake in the iPhone maker during the three months ended June 30. Apple has since gone on to become the first U.S. company to top $1 trillion in market value. Buffett has made his ardor for Apple well-known, but the world's greatest value investor made a number of other noteworthy moves in the second quarter, according to a new 13F regulatory filing. (Large investors such as Berkshire are required to disclose their holdings to the Securities and Exchange Commission every three months.) The big picture remains the same. Buffett is, as always, bullish. In total, Berkshire spent $6.1 billion on stocks in the second quarter. And since it can be instructive to see what Buffett has been up to, we took a closer look at what Berkshire has been buying and selling. Keep in mind that bigger investments are thought to be made by Warren Buffett himself, while smaller positions are believed to be handled by lieutenants Ted Weschler and Todd Combs. With that caveat in mind, here are the most notable recent changes to Berkshire Hathaway's stock holdings. SEE ALSO: 20 Dividend Stocks to Fund 20 Years of Retirement
