Buffett KEEPS buying $OXY

You may remember $OXY from a few newsletters ago

Senator Thomas Carper’s wife purchased the petroleum stock on May 9, 2024

If you remember, Thomas Carper sits on the Senate Committee on Environment.

Occidental recently bought a carbon capture startup for $1.1B, in order to sell carbon-removal credits.

Mr. Buffett purchased 2.5 million shares at $59.75. With a value of a whopping $153,292,504.

Between June 5th and June 7th, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) bought 2.56 million shares of Occidental Petroleum (OXY) for about $153 million.

He now owns 250m out of the outstanding 886m

This hefty investment boosts Berkshire's total stake in Occidental Petroleum to 27.97%, solidifying its spot as a top institutional holder with nearly $15 billion invested.

It’s not recommended to “coat tail” someone else’s investment ideas. Do your own DD, have your own conviction.

The Pinnacle of Insider Trading

if there was an award for the most obvious insider trades, $JANX would take home the award

  • 2 insiders turned $4 million → $80 million

  • 1 turned $850 → $45 million

Data is from openinsider.com

They bought and sold at the same exact time.

Note that they bought at the very bottom. And at one point had $100 mill + in gains.
