Small caps also fared well as the Russell 2000 surged 1.2%,” Gondo writes. “Apple, Cisco, and Microsoft were among the most active Nasdaq gainers by share volume. The trio also boosted the Dow Jones industrial average.”

Warren Buffett’s latest 13-F filing showed the billionaire investor added 522,802 shares of Apple,” Gondo writes. “The iPhone maker now represents a 25.77% stake in Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio, up from 23.84% in Q2. Berkshire owns 5% of Apple’s outstanding shares.”
