I made a screen of the biggest stock buys from 49 super investors over the recent six month and ranked them in my 100 best guru buy list. They all bought 594 stocks within the past half year.
The top stocks are now Berkshire Hathaway and Google. Berkshire was bought by 16 stock market professionals and Google by 15. Half of the top ten buys came from the technology sector.
