Warren Buffett's top stocks are dogs this year

IBM shares sank nearly 6% Tuesday and are down 12% year-to-date. Those kinds of lousy returns seem to be par for the course for Buffett in 2015.

Shares of megabank Wells Fargo (WFC), Berkshire's second-largest investment, are down 3%. That's not awful of course.

But Berkshire may love the big banks too much. He also has decent-sized stakes in U.S. Bancorp(USB) and Goldman Sachs (GS). Both of those banks stocks are in the red this year too.

Coca-Cola (KO) is Berkshire's third largest holding. It's no secret that Buffett loves sipping cherry coke.

The stock is flat this year. Again. That's not terrible. But rivals Pepsi (PEP) and Dr Pepper Snapple(DPS) have been much better performers.

Is Buffett stubbornly sticking with a company that's losing ground in the soda wars?

We'll know more soon. Coke's latest earnings are due out Wednesday morning.
