Warren Buffett  Gains $40 billion from Apple Stock Purchase


Warren Buffet purchased $10 million Apple shares in May 2016. He holds $245 million shares, now worth more than $95 billion. 43% of Berkshire Hathaway’s entire stock portfolio is tied to Apple Stock.

Buffett’s deal to buy Dominion Energy Inc.’s natural gas assets signals that a  market’s shift away from fossil fuels won’t come anytime soon. Warren Buffett’s $9.7 billion bet on natural gas seems quite contrarian in the present time. Natural gas futures in the U.S. dropped in June at their lowest point in 25 years. Dominion Energy and Duke Energy Corp. scraped  plans for  a new gas pipeline crossing the Appalachian Trail due to stiff environmental opposition.
