As of June 14, roughly 63% of invested assets were tied up in only three stocks.

For decades, financial stocks (Buffett’s favorite sector to invest in) and consumer staples comprised a meaningful percentage of invested assets. But recently, we’ve witnessed Berkshire’s brightest minds gravitating to energy stocks.

Oil and gas stocks have mostly been an afterthought for the Oracle of Omaha since this century began. Yet as last week, Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY) combined to account for nearly $34 billion in market…
