Buffett Adding Wells Fargo Sets Bank Apart at Berkshire

Billionaire Warren Buffett’s accumulation of Wells Fargo & Co. stock is making the lender stand out among Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s largest holdings.

Buffett added shares of the bank for the ninth straight quarter, bringing Berkshire’s total investment to almost $20 billion, according to a regulatory filing today. The stake is the largest holding in a portfolio that includes about $15.6 billion of Coca-Cola Co., $11.4 billion of American Express Co. and $12.7 billion in International Business Machines Corp.
