Berkshire Hathaway Adds To Liberty SiriusXM Again

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has filed two separate Form 4's with the SEC regarding its position in two share classes of Liberty SiriusXM (LSXMA / LSXMK). 

Per the filing, Berkshire was buying shares of both on May 18th, 19th, and 22nd.  They acquired 492,156 shares of LSXMA at weighted average prices ranging from $37.1826 to $38.8041.  After these buys, they owned over 14.15 million LSXMA shares.

They also bought 679,930 shares of LSXMK at weighted average prices ranging from $36.8074 to $38.5003.  After these purchases, they now own over 29.77 million LSXMK shares.

This is the second month in a row that Berkshire has bought LSXMA / LSXMK shares.  We highlighted then how Ted Weschler (one of Berkshire's portfolio managers) seems to be the lead investor here.
