Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has eliminated its holdings in several American blue chips – boosting its money pile to a record $157.2 billion.
The changes to the multinational conglomerate holding company were disclosed in a regulatory filing for the third quarter ending Sept. 30 that was made public Tuesday.
Berkshire Hathaway sold $7 billion of stocks within the third quarter, largely by ditching its stakes in General Motors, Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble.
The corporate also sold off smaller positions in Mondelez International and United Parcel Service, while slimming its investments in Amazon.com, Chevron and HP, in keeping with the Wall Street Journal.
Berkshire Hathaway did little to balance the offloading — only buying up $1.7 billion within the third quarter, a down period for its stock holdings led by Apple, whose share price fell 12%.
