Not sure of the date. I read that rule 13 specifies within 45 days from the end of the quarter for 13-F disclosure, so I think it might even be tomorrow, Thursday 14th Feb. I imagine they'll leave it as late as possible to delay releasing information that may compromise their ability to keep purchasing new positions at cheap prices.

Looking backward over the last year we have the following four quarterly 13-F filing dates:

2018/11/14 = 31inOct + 14inNov = 45 days after 2018/09/30 quarter end
2018/08/14 = 31inJul + 14inAug = 45 days after 2018/06/30 quarter end
2018/05/15 = 30inApr + 15inMay = 45 days after 2018/03/31 quarter end
2018/02/14 = 31inOct + 14inNov = 45 days after 2017/12/31 quarter end

Looking at that, in the past year it's always exactly 45 days, so unless it's a non-working day or non-trading day and it gets brought forward to the working/trading day before, I imagine it will always be Valentine's day for the first of the year, 15th May for the second and 14th Aug and 14th Nov for the others. Any later without good reason or special dispensation and presumably Berkshire would fall foul of the SEC.

However, I've seen people posting elsewhere (e.g. comments about Apple on a Charlie Munger fans' Facebook Group) that they think it will be Friday and I think I've seen it elsewhere too in comments. Mind you, I wouldn't expect most people care enough to be aware of the 45-day rule and they're probably more used to the idea of publishing the 10-Q and 10-K filings on a Friday or Saturday after the markets have closed for the week so that everyone has time to digest them.

I'm strongly guessing late on 22nd February for the 10-K, though I'm not sure what the rules are and whether it could even extend to 1st March.

The other one I've read a little about in the filings seems to be 13-D and 13-G type filings. These apply where more than 5% of a class of stock is owned and I believe they have a much shorter time period (might have been 5 or 15 days or trading days) before they must be filed after the transition across the 5% barrier either way is known, when certain material events happen (e.g. Knauf's offer for USG), or when the percentage changes by about 1%. Sometimes, assuming Berkshire has not received an exemption from public disclosure for a specific position so long as they tell the SEC, we might be able to infer that a certain amount of buying has NOT happened within a certain period. For example, that they have not bought another 1% of Apple's outstanding common stock in the first part of January, which would not have been disclosed on tomorrow's 13-F.

Great analysis, Dynamic,

Thank you. I just looked at the filing of the EOP 2017Q4 13-F/HR at the SEC website. That was filed on February 14th 2018, and if you look carefully at it at the SEC website, it's attributed a time stamp for acceptance : "2018-02-14 16:03:31".

February 14th 2018 was a Wednesday. January in every year has the same number of days [31]. So, based on those observations, combined with the content of your last post, I will be surprised, if we don't see the 13-F/HR filing for EOP 2018Q4 after closing tomorrow.

Good spot, John. After tomorrow's close seems highly likely. For me that's on the evening of Valentine's Day so my attention will be focused on my wonderful wife, rather than on EDGAR, who would otherwise get named in divorce proceedings.   :P

There were a load of 13G filings as well as the 13-F filed on 14th Feb 2019. I looked at them all. These verified the total figures from adding NEAM and BRK filings and revealed whether pension trusts were holding some of them (which I then subtract to obtain shareholder ownership).

I made a mistake earlier by forgetting to remove adjustments I'd made to the Apple totals. The Apple total now matches on 13G compared to my Combined 13-F total (BRK + NEAM), so I've removed mt erroneous figures.

I'm going to make the changes to the spreadsheet soon, but for now, these are the movements in the portfolio held for the benefit of Berkshire shareholders as I have them on my private version when I'm making the edits before putting them live.

I believe I've now updated both sheets to reflect the current known portfolio. The links in this old post will still work.

The spreadsheet I'd advise you to Make a copy of for your own use is:
Berkshire Hathaway Look Through Earnings & Holdings

The spreadsheet that is publicly editable by anyone (but anyone can see any edits you make, the edit history, or corrupt the spreadsheet) is:
Berkshire Look through earnings - Public editing allowed
