Berkshire Hathaway's Class A shares (BRK.A) outperformed the benchmark S&P 500 by a factor of well over 100. Money managers with more than $100 million in assets under management are required to file Form 13F with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)

Berkshire Hathaway should be filing its 13F with the SEC after the market closes next Monday, Aug. 15, 2022. Investors have been able to use Berkshire's 13Fs to track and mirror Warren Buffett's trades. For example, the Oracle of Omaha has been a big buyer of oil stocks in 2022.

Warren Buffett's new-found love of energy stocks can be taken as a sign that he believes oil and natural gas prices will remain elevated for years to come. Keep in mind Buffett's company also owns $10 billion worth of preferred stock in Occidental that's yielding 8% annually.

Apple accounted for 42.5% of Berkshire Hathaway's $354 billion of invested assets as of this past weekend. Apple has ridden a wave of innovation since the mid-2000s to become the largest publicly traded company in the United States. The company has an extremely well-recognized brand and a loyal customer base.

Berkshire Hathaway's 13F doesn't tell the full story about where Buffett and his investing team are putting the company's money to work. There's one stock Buffett has purchased more of over the past four years than any other holding. The company's iPhone dominates U.S. smartphone market share.
