Which stocks does Warren Buffett own?UPDATE : For the latest Warren Buffett stock holdings see Warren Buffett Stocks
Warren Buffett is one of the greatest investors of all time. You may wish therefore to follow what has become known as "the Warren Buffett way" and invest in stocks that he would invest in. This would require on your part a whole load of knowledge on how he chooses the stocks he chooses and why. You would then need to sift through company reports the way he does each and every day and also maybe get a bit lucky.
Fortunately you don't have to do that, as it is quite a simple matter to be a Warren Buffett coattail investor. Just find out what stocks he is buying (he reports them all to the SEC) and buy the same ones. To search the SEC documents just head on over to EDGAR and enter Berkshire Hathaway, then do a little detective work. As he is a long-term investor (the best holding period is forever he says) then you don't need to worry too much about timing your entry.
