Warren Buffett’s bet on Apple gained $1 billion in a Single Day.
Warren Buffett’s bet on Apple gained $1 billion on Wednesday, 3rd August 2017.
Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway owns about 135 million shares of Apple. Apple released its third quarter earnings report after the bell on Tuesday (2nd August 2017) and beat Wall Street’s expectations. Shares of the company rose 5.11% on Wednesday following the strong report to $157.72.
Multiplying Berkshire Hathaway’s 135 million shares by the $7.67 rise in Apple’s stock price nets the holding company $1,035,319,579; more than $1 billion in a single day.
In Indian rupee , it is Rs. 6413 Crore. (One Billion Dollar = 1,000,000,000 x 64.13 = Rs. 6413 Crore )
It’s worth noting that Buffett would have to sell his company’s shares at the current stock price in order to realize those gains. Berkshire Hathaway’s holding also could have changed slightly since it last disclosed it as well, which would affect the gains.
Apple was on the rise after reporting higher than expected earnings and revenue numbers. Stronger iPad and Mac sales contributed to the beat. Apple also released guidance for the fourth quarter which would suggest that previously expected delays in the launch of the iPhone 8 won’t be an issue for the company.
Shares of Apple are up 35.76% this year.
