  • Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway wasn’t immune from the 20% stock market sell-off in 2022.

  • The conglomerate’s 48-stock portfolio only had 10 companies that saw gains in 2022.

  • These were Buffett’s 10 best performing stocks owned by Berkshire Hathaway in 2022.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway was by no means immune to the stock market’s crushing sell-off in 2022.

Berkshire Hathaway did see its own stock gain in 2022, rising 3% compared to the S&P 500’s near-20% decline as the conglomerate’s oil and gas investments benefited from surging commodity prices.

But Berkshire also owns a 48-stock portfolio that was worth just under $300 billion as of September 30. Of those 48 stocks, only 10 names saw gains in 2022. Meanwhile, its largest position, Apple, fell 27%. The worst performing stocks owned by Berkshire Hathaway in 2022 included Nu Holdings and Snowflake, which both sank 57%.

Despite the losers, Buffett still saw some big gains in Berkshire’s stock portfolio. Some of the best performers have been owned by Buffett for decades, like Coca-Cola, while others were added to the portfolio in recent years, like T-Mobile.

These were the 10 best performing stocks owned by Berkshire Hathaway in 2022. The list also includes a Berkshire holding value as of September 30, and is according to data from Whale Wisdom.
