Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway shared that he bought stock in satellite television service DirecTV, tech giant IBM, and chipmaker Intel Corp.
Buffett disclosed that he had bought 57 million shares of IBM, 9.3 million shares of Intel, and 4.2 million shares of DirecTV. These are unusual investments for Buffet, who normally avoids technology stocks.
Berkshire Hathaway had $59.1 billion in common stock at the end of the third quarter. This is up 12.9% from the $52.4 billion the company had three months earlier.
Berkshire Hathaway also has new holdings in Visa, with 2.3 million shares, 5.7 million shares in CVS, and 3.1 million shares in General Dynamics.
