  One Response to “Major Changes to Berkshire Hathaway’s Portfolio in Fourth Quarter 2015”

  1. After having sought confidential treatment in the first quarter of 2012 with the acquisition of 1.6 million shares of Lee Enterprises, Berkshire sold it’s last 88,000 shares of Lee in 4Q 2015. Lee Enterprises had been one of only four companies that Berkshire sought confidential treatment for since doing so with IBM purchases in 2011.
