3 Top Stocks That Warren Buffett Bought During The Recent Quarter

Warren Buffett is one of the most trusted investors on the market. When he moves his big money, the whole street is watching and tries to figure out what he is thinking about.

The latest big move was reasonable to Exxon Mobil, the largest U.S. oil producer. Warren bought ConocoPhillips on the peak of the oil price and was wrong with his investment decision. Now it looks that he gives his oil bet a second chance with the strongest cash flow producer in this field.

At the same time Warren Buffett reduced its current position in ConocoPhillips but keeps the downstream business Philips 66 stable. I have no idea what he is thinking about with this transaction. 

In addition, Warren increased shares of DaVita Healthcare Partners and Goldman Sachs. Here you can find a detailed overview about the latest big stock purchases from Warren Buffett.
