Berkshire Hathaway:
Apple (AAPL) unchanged
Bank of America (BAC) up 3.5%
US Bancorp (USB) up by 2.4%
Amazon (AMZN) up 11% 

"Berkshire said it ended June with 537,300 Amazon shares worth about $1.02 billion, up from 483,300 shares three months earlier. It made the disclosure in a regulatory filing detailing the $208.1 billion of U.S.-listed stocks it owned as of June 30." 

25iQuiz: If BRK owns 249,589,329 Apple shares, what percentage is AAPL of its $208.1 billion equity portfolio?

Bonus question: If the BRK stock portfolio was valued at $208 billion on June 30, 2019 what value was the market assigning to all the operating businesses?

Since people are clamoring for one more bonus question:

How much of the value of every BRK share is attributable to just its Apple holdings based on market prices (expressed as a percentage)?
