A 13-F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday reveals Buffett's holding company purchased even more Appel stock. Apple is among its largest holdings alongside Bank of America, Coca-Cola, and American Express.

The filing was shared by StreetInsider, which stated that Berkshire Hathaway added 333,856 shares of Apple in Q4 of 2022, bringing its total stake to 895,136,175 shares. That is worth $137 billion.

Buffet's relationship with Apple has been strong since he made his first major stake in the company in 2016. He made an initial investment of about $1.07 billion, or about 9.81 million shares at the time.

Though the holding company has sold some shares from time to time, Apple slowly grew to be among its biggest investments. Its stake had earned over $100 billion by August 2020.

Warren Buffet famously didn't own any major tech stocks until Apple, and since, he's been publicly complimenting CEO Tim Cook's leadership. Apple even debuted a whimsical paper delivery game called "Warren Buffett's Paper Wizard."

The investments in Apple have paid off for Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway. It was reported in March 2022 that Buffet had earned more than $100B from holding Apple shares since 2016.

    That comment implies you don't own any AAPL stock.  Tisk! Tisk! :-) 

    AAPL has been a smart buy for over 20 years.  I'm surprised at how many of my fellow Mac fans still don't own a single share.  My first purchase was back in 1999. Last year, I purchased some BRK-B for the first time.  No dividends like AAPL, but something I should have purchased long ago.

    More clever in the one area of avarice.
    But it does not make him a better human being.

    He is actually reportedly a pretty decent guy and he would probably be the first to say he isn’t a genius, he just invests in companies he thinks are good values. I remember reading a Berkshire Hathaway financial report in 1990 and instead of it trying to say how great of an investment Berkshire Hathaway was it was actually pointing out that past success didn’t guarantee future success.

    Berkshire's Apple share total should be 915,560,382 rather than 895,136,175.

    Most of the Apple shares held by Berkshire and its subsidiaries get reported on the 13-F for the institutional manager Berkshire Hathaway Inc - i.e., the one referred to in the OP. But around 20 million shares, those held by the Berkshire subsidiary Gen Re Corporation, get reported on a different 13-F for the institutional manager New England Asset Management Inc.
