BAC 17% (warrants and common)
BRK 10%
MKL 8%
LUK 5%
NICK 4%
GLRE 2%
MDLZ 2%
Cash 52%

I have a large cash balance because my savings rate is very high relative to my net worth and it has effectively added >3% to my portfolio a month.  Also, I between 20-50% of that cash I think of as an emergency fund for personal expenses so maybe that shouldn't count.  I am currently thinking of reworking my portfolio to look more like this:

BRK 20%
MKL 20%
BAC 20% (warrants and common)
LUK 10%
FIAT 5%
Cash 25%

Why do you think BYD is Pabrai's secret stock?

I believe Pabrai said (1) misunderstood-BYD is thought to be a car company and if you review the products section of byd.com you realize they are not a "car" company.  And, they have changed the focus of the car segment to pubic transportation; (2) tailwinds - peak oil/environmental concerns produce the need to develop, transmit, store, and gather alternative energy sources in the future; (3)  Incredible manager - Wang Chuan Fu was called a Thomas Edison/Jack Welch hybrid by Munger; and (4) Current price weakness caused by a variety of factors - the bearish articles have mentioned a myriad of concerns during the stock weakness.

If it's not BYD, possibly FIAT, - Pabrai is in a picture in front of a Ferrari that was out front of the Hilton during the Berkshire meeting.  Fiat just doesn't make sense though because the automobile business isn't misunderstood and doesn't have tailwinds.  CHK and ZINC don't made sense either.
And, the Munger connection is oh so obvious.

Guess you´re right on both BYD and FIAT:

In the picture, Pabrai isn´t in front of just any Ferrari...he´s standing in front of John Elkann´s Ferrari, next to John Elkann.

MTG, EFN, PD, 18% leverage
+1 conv pref +1 new build in progress

We include the leverage as a portfolio weighting, as we use it as a negative asset to offset the impact of big (for us) holdings of very low cost shares. We periodically run the leverage up to buy in the new positions; & repay it via ongoing hedging.
