Berkshire ditched Taiwan Semiconductor

Late on Tuesday, Berkshire confirmed that it slashed its position in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (NYSE: TSM) by a whopping 86% in the recent quarter.

That’s quite unusual for the legendary investor who’s known to hold stocks for the long term. Berkshire had built a $5.0 billion stake in TSMC only months ago (read more).

Assuming that Buffett offloaded the stock at its average price last quarter, the said sale would be worth about $3.70 billion. In January, Taiwan Semiconductor reported mixed results for its fiscal Q4.

Naturally, shares of the multinational are under pressure on Wednesday. At writing, the intraday loss stands at over 5.0%.
