Buffett's 10 Favorite Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 22, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Famed investor Warren Buffett has a proven track record of picking stocks that add value, while getting rid of those that deplete it. In his more than 60 years in the investment community, he's amassed a fortune which has him consistently ranked as one of the world's wealthiest. One of the fathers of the modern value investing philosophy, Buffett evaluates a stock based on whether its intrinsic value is less than its market value; that is, truly outstanding companies which haven't realized their full market potential (or at least, the investing community hasn't yet). In this way, Buffett has managed to generate a net worth of $58.2 billion, according to Forbes.

One method to hedge bad market turns with regular dividend-paying stocks. Buffett recently gave insight into his fund's favorites in a 13-F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, a required ownership inventory from institutional investment managers with more than $100 million in securities. The mandatory filing is submitted within 45 days of each quarter's end and provides a snapshot of how and where the firm invested in the three months to December. Here are his portfolio's top 10 dividend-yield stocks for the year-ending quarter: ConocoPhillips (COP), Kraft Foods (KRFT), General Electric (GE), Procter & Gamble (PG), Coca-Cola Co (KO), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), United Parcel Service (UPS), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Wal-Mart (WMT).
