Warren Buffett Buys Surprisingly These 8 Dividend Stocks

Warren Buffett released recently his Portfolio movements via 13F. 

I cover his investment changes and like to share my thoughts about his latest moves with you here on my blog. 

Sure, I like to keep my focus on dividend stocks but you will also get his non-dividend payer stock buys and sells.

During the past quarter, Warren bought 11 stocks of which eight pay a dividend. Four stocks were reduced and one, Deere, were sold out by the investment guru from Omaha.

General Motors and Suncor Energy are his highest yielding stock purchases from the past quarter. Completely new shares in his asset vehicle were Express Scripts Holdings, the health care plans operator.

In addition he added Visa and MasterCard. The trend of paying cash-less is fully intact and gains more and more momentum.

Also Wal-Mart and IBM shares were increased by Buffett. Below is a full list of his latest stock movements.

Here are Warren Buffett's latest dividend paying stock buys:

  1. I think Warren has just a bit too much wealth and the best remedy for that is for him to give me a call and fly me up there to Omaha so we can chat about an arrangement that he can transfer some of his wealth into an account I will have full control over. After showing the balance achieved after a year I can transfer the principal back to his control while the added value will remain with me. We just need to decide on an amount and we'll be good to go. Call me Warren.
