Beyond its top-10 positions, QUAL features exposure to several other Berkshire holdings, including Visa (NYSE: V), MasterCard (NYSE: MA), Kraft Foods (NasdaqGS: KRFT), Viacom (NYSE: VIA-B) and Liberty Media (NasdaqGS: LMCA).

Although they are not Buffett holdings, QUAL’s two largest holdings – Microsoft (NasdaqGS: MSFT) and Apple (NasdaqGS: AAPL) – fit the bill as quality stocks with wide moats, massive cash positions, voracious buybacks and recently displayed commitments to boosting dividends. Those stocks combine for 10.7% of QUAL’s weight.
