Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has been loading up on shares of Amazon.
Berkshire upped its stake in the e-commerce giant by 11%, the Omaha, Nebraska-based holding company revealed in a government filing Wednesday. Berkshire now owns 537,300 shares of Amazon, worth $947 million. The holdings are as of the end of the second quarter.
Buffett announced his initial Amazon investment in May, but said he was not the one behind the share purchases.
“One of the fellows in the office that manage money” bought shares of Amazon on behalf of Berkshire, Buffett told CNBC’s Becky Quick on the eve of the company’s annual shareholders meeting in Omaha.
