Regardless of how Buffett feels about paying dividends, you might want to consider some of Buffett's favorite dividend-paying stocks if you're looking for current income. But you have to be judicious. We don't normally second-guess the master, but we have doubts about some of his holdings. Berkshire, for example, has continued to hold shares of Coca-Cola (KO), Buffett's largest position, even though U.S. consumers are drinking less soda and analysts have been lowering their 2015 earnings forecasts. Last year, Buffett added to an already sizable position in International Business Machines (IBM), a stock that we suggested selling in December because the tech giant had failed to keep up with industry changes. Around the same time, Berkshire increased its stake in Deere & Company (DE), even though the maker of farm equipment has warned that sales for the fiscal year that ends in October could fall 17% as the agriculture sector experiences a temporary slowdown.
