Apple: Waiting for the Buffett effect

No one can move a stock on CNBC like Warren Buffett can.

America’s most famous investor just gave Apple a big wet kiss.

Warren Buffett told CNBC before the markets opened Monday that at his direction Berkshire Hathaway more than doubled its holdings in Apple in January, from 57.4 million shares on December 31 to about 133 million shares today.

UPDATE: There’s some discrepancy in the number of shares Berkshire Hathaway held at the end of 2016. Is it 57.4 million, per its SEC Form 13f, or 61.2 million, per the annual report?
