Warren Buffets Top 5 holdings (AAPL,CVX,AXP,KO,BAC)

ast quarter, Warren Buffett, also known as the “Oracle of Omaha,” maintained his top five holdings amid increased market volatility caused by rising interest rates and recession concerns. Despite a $53.6 billion loss in investments and derivatives during the market turmoil, Buffett urged investors not to focus on quarterly fluctuations in equity investments.

As of the end of 2022, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) remained Berkshire Hathaway’s largest holding with a value of $119 billion, significantly higher than any other holding. Buffett has endorsed Apple as the second-most significant business after Berkshire’s cluster of insurers and commended CEO Tim Cook’s stock repurchase strategy.

Despite Apple’s 27% decline in share value last year, underperforming the S&P 500’s nearly 20% drop, Buffett remained committed to the tech giant.

Chevron (NYSE:CVX), valued at $30 billion, was Berkshire Hathaway’s third-largest holding. The conglomerate increased its energy bet significantly last year, with Chevron’s stock outperforming the market in 2022 with a 53% rally.

Buffett’s portfolio also consists of some long-standing holdings, including Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), American Express (NYSE:AXP), and Bank of America (NYSE:BAC).
