Dividends4Life: Warren Buffett Approved Dividend Stocks

Warren Buffett Approved Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Monday, July 01, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest men in the world, does not pay shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRKA) a dividend. However, he has provided insightful views on the subject over the years. Buffett believes management should think long and hard about when to retain earnings and when to distribute them to shareholders. As he explains in a past shareholder letter, “Allocation of capital is crucial to business and investment management.”

At this point in time, Buffett believes Berkshire Hathaway should retain its earnings in favor of paying out a dividend. The company is able to put those earnings to better use and shareholders even receive benefits from Berkshire Hathaway investing in large stable companies that more often than not pay attractive dividends. Here’s a look at five Buffett-approved dividend-paying stocks that do not appear to be destined for oblivion: Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP).
