Verizon Communications Inc (VZ)

Berkshire took a 146.7-million-share position in Verizon Communications, a diversified telecoms company with a market cap of 233 billion offers communications, information, and entertainment products and services to consumers, businesses, and governmental entities worldwide.

Warren Buffett has created a big position in Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) during the fourth quarter, accounting for 3.19% of the overall portfolio. Shares of Verizon underperformed in the last twelve months and extended the downtrend since the beginning of this year. However, the company offers a dividend yield of 4.64%.” - Siraj Sarwar

With the 5G upgrade cycle coming into full swing, Verizon has a huge opportunity ahead of it. There's a lot at stake, and competition will remain fierce. But having the confidence of the Oracle of Omaha is worth a lot in many investors' eyes.” - Dan Caplinger

Chevron Corp (CVX)

The rise in “Black Gold” has everyone buzzing but not as much as when it came to light that Berkshire Hathaway opened a large position in the struggling energy company Chevron. Berkshire took on a 48.5 million share position as of the 31st of December 2020.

Warren Buffett has created a huge position in Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) during the fourth quarter to take advantage of the massive growth in oil prices. It appears that the stock-picking strategy worked in the case of Chevron. This is because shares of the oil and gas giant rallied more than 9.5% compared to the S&P 500 growth of just over 4%. Moreover, Chevron has the ability to offer increasing cash returns to shareholders. The company currently offers a dividend yield of 5.5%.” - Siraj Sarwar
