5 Stocks That Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Has Been Trimming


Legendary investor Warren Buffett's long-term investment philosophy is well known, but that doesn't mean the Oracle of Omaha never sells a stock.

According to Berkshire Hathaway's 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC,) here are the top five stocks the Buffett-led company has trimmed its holdings in during Q1 2024.
