Warren Buffett now owns more than $50 billion worth of Apple shares


A regulatory filing recently filed showed that Berkshire Hathaway has now owns nearly $50 billion as of June 30, 2018. Berkshire Hathaway owned approximately 246.5 million shares at the time, or 5.1% of the company's outstanding shares. This represents the single biggest stake of a Berkshire owned company.

Buffett's stake certainly received a boost recently as Apple became the first US company to top $1 trillion in market cap. Berkshire Hathaway is the third-largest shareholder in Apple, behind Vanguard and BlackRock.

Earlier this year, Buffett told CNBC that he would "love to own 100 percent" of Apple. He added, "we like very much the management, and the way they think, and the way they act."
