Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Trims Moody's Stake Again

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway continues to trim its stake in Moody's with another reported sale. This latest reduction, however, is relatively small compared to recent days.

A filing with the SEC tonight (Tuesday) shows that Berkshire sold 87,992 shares on Friday, December 18 for an average price of $26.7682. Total raised by the sale: under $2.4 million.

Berkshire has sold a total of almost 6.3 million Moody's shares on six days so far this month, raising $160.2 million.

It now holds just under 13.5 percent of the credit rating agency's outstanding shares, and remains its biggest shareholder.

Here's the updated table showing all the reported sales this year:
