    The Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio: All 48 Buffett Stocks

    When folks think of the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) portfolio and its collection of holdings, most of which were selected by Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, the companies that most readily come to mind are probably American Express (AXP), Coca-Cola (KO) and, more recently, Apple (AAPL).But a deep dive into Berkshire Hathaway's equity holdings reveals a more complicated picture.Berkshire Hathaway held positions in 48 separate stocks as of March 31, according to regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But the portfolio of "Buffett stocks" isn't as diversified as the number might suggest. In some cases, BRK.B holds more than one share class in the same company. Some holdings are so small as to be immaterial leftovers from earlier bets the Oracle of Omaha has yet to completely exit.And perhaps most importantly, Berkshire Hathaway's equity portfolio is actually pretty concentrated. The top six holdings account for almost 70% of the portfolio's total value. The top 10 positions comprise nearly 80%. Banks and airlines, to cite a couple of sectors, carry quite a load in this portfolio. Then there's the fact that several Buffett stocks actually were picked by portfolio managers Todd Combs and Ted Weschler.Here, we examine each and every holding to give investors a better understanding of the entire Berkshire Hathaway portfolio.

    China’s Mass of Mobile-Centric Consumers Both Help and Hurt IQ Stock

    I must say that I haven't been too kind with iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ), which most folks know as China's Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). You would think that a company that is levered toward the world's biggest market in anything would do well. A cursory look at the charts for IQ stock tells a different tale.Source: Shutterstock And while I'm not trying to pat myself on the back, I will say that recommending against buying iQiyi stock was a gamble. How many times have we seen embattled securities bounce back for absolutely ridiculous reasons? Despite my reservations about the company, IQ still has that China market in its pocket. That's not something to take lightly.That said, I also want to know what other people are thinking, especially those that have a different perspective. You don't really understand your own argument until you understand your opponent's thesis. Although I hardly consider our own Dana Blankenhorn an opponent, he did put forward a differing narrative on IQ stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsEssentially, people have the completely wrong perspective regarding iQiyi stock. As I so cavalierly mentioned up top, IQ is the Netflix of China. But Blankenhorn takes issue with that comparison because it's only accurate from a superficial angle. In reality, they're two different animals. * 7 Stocks to Buy for the Coming Recession Increasingly in American and presumably other western households, people sit down in front of the TV to stream their favorite programs. This behavior facilitates the binge-watching phenomenon that we've grown so accustomed to.But in China, things are different. They don't have time to sit on their easy chair like us lazy Americans. Instead, their consumption is mobile-centric, which specifically benefits iQiyi's platform, and IQ stock.It's also a damn good argument. Unique Chinese Consumerism Also Hurts IQ StockWorking in the financial media space, I more or less have seen it all. Again, I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but I'm rarely intellectually stimulated with investment-related editorials.Blankenhorn's point, though, hit me right in the solar plexus. It made me rethink my own thoughts about iQiyi stock. I also looked at the charts again. While I was right to be bearish on shares, right now, the discount is mighty attractive.So, have I changed my mind? I'm sorry to disappoint any ardent bulls of IQ stock, but I'm still cautious on the company longer-term.Fundamental to Blankenhorn's thesis is that iQiyi is uniquely positioned to serve the unique needs of Chinese consumers. The company's target demographic is the young, upwardly mobile Chinese professional who grew up in an era of unprecedented prosperity. To quote Blankenhorn, they're "working hard and must play hard as well."But this unique Chinese consumerism is a double-edged sword. China's consumers have expectations to stream high-quality content. That arguably benefits IQ stock. But they also expect to do so for free. Obviously, that doesn't help matters.You know what? I'm not surprised one bit. Why should anyone be? For decades, China represented ground zero for content piracy. The number of copyright violations that have occurred is simply staggering.In recent times, the Chinese government has cracked down on these content pirates and they've done a great job. However, because they did a great job, it patently shows you how deeply entrenched piracy is in China. This is a consumer culture that now expects certain things like media entertainment to be free of charge. * 7 Dark Horse Stocks Winning the Race in 2019 It's going to take a while to overturn this mindset, which is why I'm still avoiding iQiyi stock. Short-term Swing for iQiyi Stock PossibleNow, it's not all bad news for IQ stock. What I'm proposing is a longer-term narrative. In the interim, it's very possible that shares at least get a dead-cat bounce.Clearly, the magnitude of volatility has subsided. The risk is currently more to those gambling that shares decline even further. It appears that strong support exists at the $18 level, where shares are roughly trading today.If you have a short-term timeframe and don't mind the choppiness, go for it. The front-face narrative for iQiyi stock that everyone focuses on -- the Chinese Netflix -- remains popular, albeit inaccurate to Blankenhorn's point.But if you're thinking about holding this for the long-term, I'd back off and take a breather. There's a reason why the streaming units of Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), Tencent (OTCMKTS:TCEHY), and Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) haven't justified the hype. China has the numbers, but the numbers don't want to pay.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    3 Consumer Discretionary ETFs That Could Heat Up This Summer

    The Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLY), the largest exchange-traded fund dedicated to the consumer discretionary sector, was up nearly 18% year-to-date at the start of June 11, putting it nearly 240 basis points ahead of the S&P 500.Consumer discretionary is the fourth-largest sector weight in the S&P 500. The primary reason why traditional, cap-weighted consumer cyclical ETFs like XLY are thriving this year is Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). That stock is up almost 24% year-to-date and is carrying many consumer cyclical funds because it is by far the largest holding in those ETFs.For example, XLY allocates 24.57% of its weight to shares of Amazon, more than double the weight assigned to the fund's second-largest component.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSure, some of the best ETFs in the consumer cyclical space have large weights to Amazon. That is to be expected. On the other hand, some of the best ETFs offering exposure to this sector have surprisingly small weights to Amazon, offering investors unique and potentially rewarding approaches to consumer-related stocks. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Wall Street Expects to Soar for the Rest of 2019 Here are some of the best ETFs for exposure to the consumer discretionary to consider over the next few months. Fidelity MSCI Consumer Discretionary ETF (FDIS)Expense Ratio: 0.084%, or $8.40 annually per $10,000 investedThe Fidelity MSCI Consumer Discretionary ETF (NYSEARCA:FDIS) is the least expensive consumer discretionary fund on the market today. Adding to the case for this being one of the best ETFs for investors to consider in this sector is that Fidelity clients can trade FDIS commission-free, which adds to their cost savings.Like the aforementioned XLY, FDIS is a cap-weighted fund, so it has a massive weight to Amazon, 25.48% to be precise. FDIS is also home to Home Depot (NYSE:HD), McDonald's (NYSE:MDC), Nike (NYSE:NKE) and Disney (NYSE:DIS) -- four of the Dow Jones stocks that are up at least 10% this year.Investors considering FDIS right now should be advised that the consumer discretionary sector has a tendency to struggle in the summer months, but long-term investors that can catch a pullback in FDIS could be rewarded because consumer cyclical stocks usually bounce back in the latter stages of the third quarter and soar in the last three months of the year. Amplify International Online Retail ETF (XBUY)Expense Ratio: 0.69%The Amplify Online International Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:XBUY) debuted earlier this year as the international counterpart to the popular Amplify Online Retail ETF (NASDAQ:IBUY). Online retail and e-commerce are themes dominated by Amazon in the U.S., but these themes are global, making XBUY one of the best ETFs to consider in this space.XBUY holds 46 stocks and tracks the EQM International Ecommerce Index. That benchmark "seeks to measure the performance of equity securities issued by non-U.S. companies that derive at least 90% of their revenue from online business transactions or e-commerce platforms," according to Amplify.XBUY's holdings include traditional retailers, online travel providers and marketplace companies, such as Shopify (NYSE:SHOP). XBUY is one of the best ETFs for tactical investors seeking ex-U.S. exposure because online shopping has significant tailwinds. * 7 U.S. Stocks to Buy With Limited Trade War Exposure "Ecommerce represented a growing share of the retail market in 2018, taking a 14.3% share of total retail sales last year, up from 12.9% in 2017 and 11.6% in 2016," notes Digital Commerce 360. "More significant is that ecommerce sales represented more than half, or 51.9%, of all retail sales growth. This is the largest share of growth for purchases made online since 2008, when ecommerce accounted for 63.8% of all sales growth." ProShares Online Retail ETF (ONLN)Expense Ratio: 0.58%The ProShares Online Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:ONLN) is one of the best ETFs for investors looking for umbrella exposure to the biggest names in online retail. Case and point: ONLN allocates over 40% of its combined weight to Amazon and Alibaba (NYSE:BABA). ONLN is just 11 months old, but the fund is already displaying the potency of dedicated online retail investments as it is up nearly 23% year-to-date.While ONLN is essentially a bet on two stocks due to the largest weights assigned to Amazon and Alibaba, there is no denying the favorable fundamental data that underpins this fund, making it one of the best ETFs in this market niche."With nearly all of the constituents of the ProShares Online Retail index reporting, sales growth came in at nearly 20% and earnings growth came in at nearly 55%," according to ProShares.As ONLN's performance indicates, investors should embrace purity when it comes to online retailers."Some retail observers note the increased online presence of legacy bricks-and-mortar retailers as evidence that the online/brick and mortar bifurcation of the retail universe is becoming less relevant. However, this ignores the evidence that expanding the online businesses of legacy bricks-and-mortar players isn't benefiting their bottom lines. In the first quarter, Walmart's online sales grew 37%; however, Walmart's first quarter earnings shrank nearly 1%," according to ProShares.As of this writing, Todd Shriber did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
