In total it is 42.7 million shares of ORCL.  If it keeps getting bigger, I would guess it's Warren.  At this size (over $2 Billion), it could technically be any of the 3.

The exposure to US banks is now enormous - about USD 70 B [getting to USD 67.8 B alone from Dataroma, exclusive New England Asset Management]. It better go well.

The big four banks are trading at depressed PE, buying backs stocks each year using  70-80+% of their profits. If it keeps going, they will be no shares left after a decade.
