Billionaire investor Warren Buffett was a buyer of stocks to the tune of $9 billion last quarter, per a new regulatory filing from Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK-A).
The billionaire investor picked up new positions in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. TSM, Louisiana-Pacific Corp LPX and Jefferies Financial Group Inc JEF.
Taiwan Semiconductor was by far Buffett's biggest move. He purchased approximately 60 million shares of the chip company last quarter. Buffett added 5.8 million shares of Louisiana-Pacific and more than 400,000 shares of Jefferies Financial.
Buffett also increased existing positions in Occidental Petroleum Corporation OXY, Paramount Global PARA, Chevron Corporation CVX, Celanese Corporation CE and RH RH.
The billionaire investor wasn't just a buyer last quarter. He also completely cut Store Capital Corp STOR from his portfolio and trimmed back positions in Activision Blizzard Inc ATVI, Kroger Co KR, Bank Of New York Mellon Corp BK and U.S. Bancorp USB.
Apple Inc AAPL remained Berkshire's largest position by far.
Several of the aforementioned names are moving on the back of Berkshire's regulatory filing. Buffett is widely considered to be the world's greatest value investor of all time.
