NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Warren Buffett, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), was vocal about his bullish take on the U.S. economy on Monday, but the Oracle of Omaha continues to be bearish about Moody's Investor Service (MCO) in blocks and shortly after rallies in the share price of the U.S. solar bellwether.
Berkshire Hathaway insider sales transactions reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday afternoon show Warren Buffett selling more than 1.3 million shares of Moody's. Buffett's sale of Berkshire Hathaway's huge and long-time stake in Moody's has been a general trend established over the preceding year.
Buffett sold Moody's shares at a price just above $25 in the series of insider sales that started on Sept. 10.
Buffett was in the headlines early on Tuesday morning for comments he made at an economic summit stating there would be no double dip recession.
