Buffett/Berkshire Still About The Dividends

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, August 28, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend stocks remain some of the most popular investments out there for buy-and-hold investors. And few income-oriented icons are more closely watched than Warren Buffett. The most notable changes in Berkshire’s August filing included the end of a big dividend payer — Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) dropped off Buffett’s holdings altogether — and some interesting new plays, including energy service stock National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV) and larger positions in up-and-coming favorites like small-cap medical stock DaVita (NYSE:DVA) and satellite TV provider DirecTV (NASDAQ:DTV).

Seems like portfolio managers Todd Combs and Ted Weschler are having influence, moving away from the sleepy consumer names that were typical Berkshire stocks in previous years. But Buffett & Co. haven’t given up on dividends altogether. There are a number of big payers — yielding more than 3% — worth noting. I’ve taken a look at the latest filings and screened for the best dividend payers. Here are the biggest-yielding dividend stocks currently in the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio, in reverse order of yield: General Electric (NYSE:GE), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), Sanofi Aventis (NYSE:SNY), Gannett (NYSE:GCI) and GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK).
