Warren Buffett Latest Stock Holdings

Stock Buys
Positions increased : IRM, BDX, NLC, JNJ, SNY
Positions initiated : FISV
Positions decreased : KFT, MTB, COP, PG,

The major changes were the addition to his stake in Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) (+72.5%) and the creation of a new position in Fiserv (FISV).
JNJ have been having problems of late with product recalls and Buffett was a seller in Q1, but in Q2 he was a buyer.

Fiserv provides information technology and back-end services to the financial services industry. It focuses on boring activities like check clearing.

Small stock increases
Warren Buffett bought further small amounts of stock to add to his positions in four companies, buying more Becton Dickinson and Iron Mountain. There were also small increases in positions in Sanofi-Aventis (+4.1%) and Nalco, the maker of the chemicals used to disperse oil in the Gulf of Mexico.

Stock Sales
ConocoPhillips again - cutting his stake by 15% in the quarter ended June 30.
Procter & Gamble - down 1.3%
Kraft down by a further 1.4% - Buffett has criticized Kraft for its takeover of Cadbury and the sale of its pizza brands.
M&T Bank down 3.6%

There were no sales of Moody's shares.
