Dividends4Life: Top 5 Dividend Stocks Owned by Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s (BRK.A) Warren Buffett

Dividend Growth Stocks News

At the end of June 2015, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A)’s Warren Buffett owned nearly $120 billion worth of equities and more than 80 businesses. Buffett’s investment success is largely derived from his exceptional ability to combine common sense valuation principles with impeccable business judgment. Once he finds a company he believes will continue earning reasonably high returns on capital and reinvesting at similarly high returns, he loads up when the price is reasonable.

Depending on the industry, big companies can have greater competitive advantages (they became large for a reason after all) but must combat the law of large numbers when it comes to continued sales and earnings growth. With that said, let’s look at five of Warren Buffett’s top dividend stocks: 1. The Coca-Cola Co (3.4% dividend yield, Forward P/E 19.6), 2. International Business Machines Corp. (3.6% dividend yield, Forward P/E 9.4), 3. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (3.1% dividend yield, Forward P/E 14.3), Procter & Gamble Co (3.9% dividend yield, Forward P/E 18.3) and Verizon Communications (4.9% dividend yield, Forward P/E 11.7).
