Meanwhile, Buffet seems to be over his love affair with H&R Block. Once the second-largest stockholder in tax preparation firm, Buffet has unloaded his remaining positions in the firm, according to the filing.
Additionally, Buffet has asked the SEC if it would waive the requirement for him to reveal his holdings in two railroad companies—Union Pacific and Norfolk Southern.
