After buying 75 million AAPL shares, entrepreneur and economist Warren Buffett says he believes more and more in Apple and wants to invest even more. Buffett hasn't become an avid Apple user just yet, joking that the iPhone isn't the most important form of technology in his own personal life.
Buffett appreciated this proposal as it could increase Berkshire's stake in Apple by 5% due to the lack of shares outstanding.
Berkshire Hathaway's substantial purchasing of stock of 250 million from Apple has left it as it's largest holding.
Apple, whose stock hit a new record high Monday, has been a major victor for Berkshire Hathaway: Apple's stock price has roughly doubled in the two years since Berkshire initially disclosed its stake.

Scott Boras, Harvey's agent, said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches. Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making".

After offering its first stock buyback in August 2012, Apple has bought back $200 billion worth of stock, and just announced last week that it would repurchase an additional $100 billion in its shares. "And the fact that it's clever computer science doesn't mean that it should be widely used, and that respectable people should encourage other people to speculate on it. Bitcoin reminds me of Oscar Wilde's definition of fox hunting: the pursuit of the uneatable by the unspeakable".
Buffet quoted "They are not going to find $50 billion or $100 billion acquisitions that they can make at remotely a sensible price".
He also said "I'm delighted to see them repurchasing shares".
He said investors now are much better off owning US stocks, whose prices are elevated but not in a "bubble", and it would take a "nanosecond" for him to choose stocks over 10- or 30-year USA government bonds now yielding around 3 percent. For investors that like to invest based on which stocks Buffett believes in, let's take a look at how his largest positions have fared so far in 2018. But I know I don't have to do a thing and probably in a couple of years, we'll own 6 percent without laying out another dollar.
