Bill Gates' Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Friday, February 22, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Bill Gates is currently the second richest person in the world. He has set up the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to finance the various worthy causes he wishes to promote. As investors, we are naturally interested in the content and composition of this foundation's stock portfolio. Bill Gates ought to be closely followed by value- and long-term investors as his close friendship with Warren Buffett is well known.

After I reviewed his portfolio, I must admit I was pleasantly surprised to find that almost all of the stocks he controls through the foundation [Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) which constitutes 46.53% of the foundation's portfolio is a notable exception] pay a hefty dividend. I have chosen the 3 most interesting dividend paying stocks in Bill Gates portfolio. I also believe these stocks are excellent long-term buys: Wal-Mart (WMT), BP (BP) and McDonald's (MCD).
