6 Most Promising Stocks That Big Investment Gurus Bought

Stocks With Recent Engagements By Investment Professionals Researched By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Investment guru's are asset or fund managers with big amounts of cash under management. They became popular by big returns and spectacular investment strategies. I talk about investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett. They all have one thing in common: The average return beats the market and if they invest, the market follows.

I made a screen of the biggest stock buys from 49 super investors over the recent six month and ranked them in my 100 best guru buy list.

The top stocks are Oracle (ORCL) and Hewlett Packard (HPQ). Both companies were bought by ten investment gurus. 40 percent of the ten best buys were made within the technology sector. Below is a detailed overview of the best yielding dividend stocks (over 3 percent yields) that were bought by at least two stock market gurus and have a low P/E ratio of less than 15.


Here are the results:
