Warren Buffett Is Sick of These 4 Stocks

BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- Almost a month ago, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger held court in Omaha's CenturyLink Center for Berkshire Hathaway's ( (BRK.B)) annual shareholder meeting. Attendees hung on the pair's every word. After all, when a couple of billionaires dole out their investment advice and philosophies, people tend to listen.

But there's one question the Oracle of Omaha wouldn't answer: If he could buy any stock today (besides Berkshire), which would it be?

Thing is, that's the wrong question. Too often, investors get fixated on buying, ignoring that it's only half of the story. Instead, a peek at Buffett's sell list can come with a lot more interesting information. Lucky for us, we can see exactly which names Buffett (and his portfolio managers, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler) are sick of -- or hate -- in 2014.

To do that, we're taking a look at Berkshire Hathaway's most recent 13F filing.

From hedge funds to mutual funds to insurance companies, any professional investors who manage more than that $100 million watermark are required to file a 13F. And with a portfolio that tips the scales at $105.8 billion at last count, Berkshire Hathaway certainly fits that criteria. In the past, Warren Buffett has famously said that his favorite holding period is forever -- so it's a big statement when Berkshire unloads shares of individual names.
