Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) has started buying shares in e-commerce behemoth Amazon (AMZN), the famed investor told CNBC on Thursday, ahead of Berkshire’s annual shareholder meeting this weekend.

Buffett’s value-biased investment approach has seen him previously shun large parts of the technology sector, an industry he’s claimed not to understand. But in recent years he has started to dip his toes in the water – and has previously admitted not getting in earlier has been a mistake.
