Where’s Bill Gates putting his money? The latest public breakdown …

The company that manages the personal investments of Bill Gates, Cascade Investment, just disclosed his stock holdings as of June 30.

Altogether it lists $4.3 billion in stock. The largest stake is $1.6 billion in Canadia National Railway.

Not included is Gates’ Microsoft stock — he recently dipped below 800,000,000 shares after selling several big batches over the past month. Also listed separately is $36.2 million worth of Berkshire Hathaway stock that’s held by the Gates Foundation.

UPDATE: A knowledgeable reader pointed out that the report won’t necessarily show all of Gates’ investments. He only has to disclose holdings when they cross a certain percentage of a company’s total shares.

Here’s the list. Remember to add three zeroes to the value of the stock:
