Warren Buffett scores a $570 million gain on his new Japanese stocks in just 2 days – BI

Warren Buffett is famous for moving markets when he makes a bet, as other investors trust his judgement and pile into whatever he's bought. The "Buffett Effect" may have generated a $570 million gain for its namesake in just two days.

The famed investor's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate revealed on Sunday night that it has built 5% stakes in each of the five largest Japanese trading companies or "sogo shosha": ItochuMarubeniMitsubishiMitsui, and Sumitomo.

Japanese regulatory filings confirm that National Indemnity, one of Berkshire's insurance subsidiaries, owns between 5.0% and 5.06% of the five businesses. The positions were worth between $756 million (Sumitomo) and almost $2 billion (Itochu) as of Friday's close.

News of Buffett's backing sent the five companies' stock prices up by an average of 9.6% over the course of Monday and Tuesday. The upshot is the combined value of Berkshire's stakes has jumped from the yen equivalent of $6.3 billion to $6.9 billion — a 9%, or $570 million gain.

Buffett won't be too excited about the immediate success, as he plans to maintain the five positions for a long time. However, the burst of enthusiasm suggests other investors also see value in the five stocks, validating his bet on them.
