Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRKa) added to its Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY) position on the recent weakness in the stock on the oil sell-off on global recession fears.

Berkshire disclosed buying another 5.99 million shares from 09/26/22-09/28/22 at prices from $57.9116-$61.3765. The new purchase is worth about $368 million based on yesterday's closing price.

The latest purchase brings the firm's stake to 194,351,650 shares. Further, Berkshire owns warrants that cover another 83,858,848 shares, with an exercise price of $59.62, and 100,000 preferred shares.

In August, Berkshire received Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval to acquire up to 50% of Occidental Petroleum's common stock.

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.

  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.
