Dividends4Life: Warren Buffett’s 3 Safest Dividend Stocks Yielding 3% or More

Warren Buffett needs no introduction as arguably the world’s greatest investor. With his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) portfolio valued at more than $130 billion, Buffett has more than proven his ability to successfully pick the best blue-chip stocks. However, many investors don’t realize that the majority of Warren Buffett’s stock picks pay dividends, including nine of his 10 largest positions. Even better, almost a third of Warren Buffett’s dividend stocks offer a high-yield dividend in excess of 3%.

We studied each of Buffett’s high-yield dividend stocks and identified the three that offer the most reliable payments. Here they are, in order of yield: The Coca-Cola Co (KO) has raised its dividend for more than 50 consecutive years and is a member of both the Dividend Aristocrats and dividend kings lists. Wells Fargo & Co (WFC) is Warren Buffett’s biggest holding and accounted for close to 20% of Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio at the end of 2015. Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) has rewarded shareholders with higher dividends for 11 consecutive years and operates in one of the best stock sectors for dividends.
