Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has sold 560,000 more shares of credit ratings agency Moody's Corp., but Warren Buffett's company continues to control about 12 percent of Moody's stock.

Berkshire still held 28.9 million Moody's shares after the latest sales it reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday.

But that's down considerably from the 48 million Moody's shares that Berkshire held at the end of March 2009 before it started selling.

Berkshire said it sold 560,000 shares on Monday at an average price of nearly $25.73. So the sales generated more than $14 million for Buffett's Omaha-based company.
