After the annual Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) shareholder conference, investors wondered about the legendary investor Warren Buffett’s sales and purchases in Q1.

Now, the updated portfolio is out, showing that Buffett wasn’t as idle as previously thought. He made some notable additions and reductions in his holdings, with his top five holdings now making up approximately 75% of his equity portfolio.

His portfolio now consists of 41 stocks worth over $331.7 billion, a slight decrease from the $351.9 billion in the previous quarter. This could be a consequence of Buffett’s continued addition to cash reserves, which now amount to a record $190 billion, in possible preparation for the next stock acquisition.

There were some notable purchases

As expected, the Sage of Omaha continued to expand his positions in Liberty Sirius Media (NASDAQ: LSXMA, LSXMK), adding 12,547,944 and 22,277,997 shares of each, for notable changes of 62.09% and 51.56%, respectively. The difference between the two was the granting of voting rights.

Another of Buffett’s favorites, Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY), saw its holding increase by 1.77% or 4,302,324 shares.

The long-awaited hidden stock, for which Buffett got special permission from the SEC to keep it secret for the first six months, is Chubb (NYSE: CB). 5,823,840 shares were added, for a total change of 28.97% from the previous quarter.

As well as sales

On the other hand, Buffett decided to slightly reduce his holdings in Chevron (NYSE: CVX), Louisiana-Pacific (NYSE: LPX), and Sirius Holdings (NASDAQ: SIRI).

However, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) saw a significant reduction of 12.83%, or 116,191,550 shares sold, in a move that surprised many and raised questions about Buffett’s belief in AAPL stock.

Two holdings were sold entirely, as Paramount Global (NASDAQ: PARA) and HP Inc (NYSE: HPQ) can no longer boast a place in Buffett’s portfolio.

This marks the eighth consecutive quarter in which Buffett’s sales outnumber the purchases, indicating the lack of potential investments.
