Munger’s firm also maintained its status quo with its other two bank holdings. It held 1.592 million shares of Wells Fargo & Co. WFC, valued at $65.73 million, at the end of the fourth quarter.

The firm’s holding of US Bancorp. USB was at 140,000, valued at $6.11 million.

In the first quarter of 2022, the firm halved its Alibaba stake from 602,0606 to 300,000 shares and has been holding it unchanged since then.

Alibaba shares bottomed at $58.01 in late October before staging a recovery, helped by bargain hunting amid a solid third-quarter report and hopes of China reopening following the strict COVID-19 lockdowns. On Wednesday, the stock jumped 12.98% to $103.92, according to Benzinga Pro data.

Daily Journal, meanwhile, liquidated its entire holdings, numbering 9,745 shares, in South Korean steel giant Posco Holdings Inc. PKX.
