Berkshire also reports increased stakes in two other stocks:
Wells Fargo is a Buffett stake. Dollar General is in the Combs portfolio.
Today's 13-F reports a 50 percent increase in shares of Torchmark held by Berkshire. That, however, is the result of a 3 for 2 stock split that became effective on July 5, just after the start of the third quarter. It is not the result of new buying by Berkshire.
Update: This post originally reported, based on the first 13F filing, that Berkshire had doubled its stake in Verisk Analytics . On November 15, 2011, Berkshire amended its 13F to show its holdings of Verisk shares had not changed from June 30.
Berkshire did do some selling, with significant decreases for two stocks. The size of these holdings indicates Buffett was responsible.
