Meanwhile, he continued to buy Wells Fargo, a long-time favorite.

Berkshire Hathaway is expected to file its quarterly 13F report with the Securities and Exchange Commission later Monday.

Buffett told CNBC that it isn't clear Europe has the will or ability to do "whatever it takes" to solve the debt crisis. Europe was not going away and its economy will be stronger in 10 years but things were going to be difficult.

He said he does not own eurozone banks and would need to understand them better before making an investment.
